AAHA small animal practice in affluent coastal south Florida community looking for another full time doctor. We currently have 1 full time vet (the owner) and 2 half time vets and a regular relief vet. We have digital X-ray and digital dental X-ray, a class 4 Cutting Edge therapeutic laser, a Phillips ultrasound, the full IDEXX suite of lab machines, quality equipment, amazing veterinary nurses, and an even more amazing clientele. We strive to have top notch staff and equipment to keep practice fun and interesting. We run a lot of wellness labwork to keep our patients healthy and catch issues early while they are still treatable.
For an experienced full-time veterinarian with dental talents and a strong work ethic, we feel $110,000 to $140,000 is reasonable pay. Of course salary is dependent upon skillset. We prefer not to pay on commission as we believe in a team approach, but for that higher dollar amount we might consider commission. We have half hour to hour long appointments and try our best to educate clients. You won't be run ragged nor be a vet on a hamster wheel. Dr Sutton wants her full-time associate to take a week off every quarter. She wants her employees to have a life and look forward to coming back to work after a vacation.
There are 2 emergency clinics within 7 miles, so there is minimal after hours care. Tequesta, Florida is nestled within Jupiter in the north end of Palm Beach County. We are 5 minutes from glorious Jupiter Island beaches. Hour long appointments for new clients and half hour appointment times in general allow education of clients. Our nursing staff is highly experienced, so you can focus on doctor responsibilities. Avimark software provides virtually paperless records. There is a strong seasonal impact as everyone and their pets wish to live in the Jupiter area from January through April. Local specialists (4 surgeons, an ophthalmologist, criticalist, 2 internists, neurologist, dermatologist within 6 miles from the clinic) make practicing in Tequesta very pleasant.
We’d like someone with at least a few years of experience, confidence, and most of all a charming upbeat personality. You'll earn bonus points if you also have good surgical and dental skills!! Or, if you have a willingness to learn the art of dentistry, Dr Sutton is happy to teach you. Perhaps you someday hope to be a diplomate in AVBP... Perhaps you are an ER vet who is tired of the long nights and hope you can find mental stimulation in general practice. (Dr Sutton spent her first 8 years as an ER vet and former ER vets would fit in well at Tequesta Vet Clinic.)
Our clinic is a pearl, and we want another strong spectacular doctor. Our staff is exceptional, and we want nothing but the best. Please have an appreciation and joy for practicing veterinary medicine. Please be excited about this wonderful career we share. We will foster your interests and help you become the best veterinarian you can be. Continuing education is emphasized. We offer health insurance and generous vacation time.
