Our practice philosophy is to provide exceptional client service and patient care. We offer high standards of care for our patients and have support staff and equipment to accomplish this. Our business model includes a sister practice in Ormond Beach and a separately owned ER that operates when we are closed at this Port Orange location. We offer comprehensive 24/7/365 care for our clients and patients without having our doctors and staff work the night shifts. Our veterinarians get a fixed revolving schedule with no on-call hassles! The full-time schedule ranges 34-40 appointment hours per week. We are closed on major holidays but do have weekend hours. Part or full time schedules are available for the right candidate.
