Job Type: Associate

I'm a KSU grad looking to hire 2 associate doctors for a pair of sister small animal clinics in Sioux City, IA
The offices are Perry Creek Animal Hospital -- which I bought right out of school in 1983. I replaced a 100 year old facility with a wonderful new state of the art, 6000 sf building 4 years ago.  The sister office is Morningside Animal Hospital that I've owned for 4 years now.  Both offices share some equipment, have a common computer system and move clients to the office that will best serve there needs.  Currently the offices are operating with 2 full time doctors - but we have grown to the point were we are looking forward to adding a couple of Associate doctors and letting the owner mentor the new hires and then start backing away from the day to day operations.  There maybe buy in  opportunities as well.

Over the years we have mentored a few vet interns from ISU and MU.  Along with a dozen vet tech interns and lots of vet assistant interns.  We have found teaching to be very rewarding.  We have a very stable staff with one Vet tech working into his 40th year with us.

We do have very nice surgical facilities in both clinics, an ultrasound machine and a very knowledgable staff that will always be at your side to help.

We do not have an emergency clinic in town so doctors will share weekday calls and there is a group of hospitals that then share weekend call.

I continue to love the practice of Veterinary Medicine and would love to help you reach your potential as a doctor and a proud member of the Sioux City community.

Give me a call anytime and lets chat about your career in Veterinary Medicine!
