We are a full service veterinary clinic providing preventive care, surgery, acupuncture, herbal medicine and cold laser therapy. We are not your typical vet clinic - there are no cold stainless steel tables in the exam rooms or intimidating equipment. What you will find is a warm and talented staff who love animals.
We are seeking a part to full time associate with experience in general medicine. We are small animal with some pocket pet and exotic patients, depending on doctor's comfort level. We have an extensive in house laboratory, digital X-ray, dental X-ray, and two wet tables including one dedicated surgical suite. We currently have 5 doctors and can accommodate three doctors 6 days a week. We are open every day excluding major holidays.
My clinic is incredibly unique, situated in a bustling, artistic, neighborhood in Los Angeles, Silverlake . We are known throughout the neighborhood for our compassion and excellent medicine. My staff is well cared for both financially and emotionally. We offer a competitive salary, excellent benefits including an excellent retirement plan, health care, paid CE, and paid memberships.
Most of our doctors practice western medicine. I practice integrative medicine, perform acupuncture and laser therapy and prescribe Chinese and western herbs. I do not micromanage my doctors and provide them with any and all therapeutics, diets, and pharmaceuticals they ask for.
Most of our clients are lovely. Some are very high maintenance. We do a lot of rescue work and never turn anyone away. You will never find yourself in a position being asked to do something that you are not comfortable with.
A typical weekday would have two doctors seeing 1/2 hour appointments for a total of about 14 scheduled appointments and one doctor in surgery. We allow drop offs and frequently have many that we split amongst ourselves. We are a small but very busy practice. The staff is like family. We are easy going with each other and have an incredibly diverse group. We don't tolerate intolerance and a sense of humor is a must and I don't care for drama.
Ideally 2 or more years of experience in small animal medicine. Currently we have two very strong surgeons and four doctors extensively trained in dentistry so strong surgical skills are not a must but would be welcomed. We work hard but are very supportive of one another and accommodating when people have family obligations, health issues, etc.
The most important thing I'm seeking is a compassionate, kind, smart candidate who will appreciate the unique patient centered practice we provide.
