Overview

Our 11-doctor practice in Atlanta Georgia is looking to hire our 12th! We offer flexibility with scheduling, support, and guidance from all of our doctors, and the freedom to practice quality medicine the way you see best for your patients. Our practice (private, non-corporate) encourages growth and development of our veterinarians, which allows for unique CE opportunities, new equipment, and time off for continued learning opportunities. In addition, we are always open to new ideas, treatment considerations, and medications.
Our office is modern and efficient with 10 exam rooms. This allows us to see all of our clients in a relaxed setting to give them the care they deserve.
Our veterinarians enjoy all of the usual benefits of being an associate (CE, paid vacation, retirement plan, insurance, payment of licenses), but our practice offers so much more that cannot be put into a contract. The ability to practice high-quality veterinary medicine in a safe and supportive environment, the resources for growth and challenge, flexible scheduling, and a unique caseload, make Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital a great place to work!
Please feel free to contact me or any of our associate veterinarians if you have further questions.
