Long story short, Dr. Haskell says that becoming a vet was simply her calling. From high school, she set career goals for herself that were challenging, offered the ability to make the world a better place, and do something she loved on a daily basis.
She loves being a vet, loves the critters she meets, loves the diverse group of amazing pet families who love and care for them. She also loves the devoted people she works, which share the same appreciation of veterinary medicine. She wakes up daily enthusiastic about what the day will bring and how she can help and influence a healthier life for the pets and people around her, even if it is only a little bit.
Dr. Deutsch ('Doych') had a deep calling to Veterinary medicine since early childhood. He was drawn to animals and had a close relationship with his family pet growing up. “Gizmo” was his first spoken word and she helped him learn to walk. Because of his love for animals and understanding of the importance the human-animal bond, it gives him great pride and adds value to his work while partnering with families to provide care to their pet companions.
Whether discussing preventive measures to keep pets healthy, working with families to diagnose and treat their pets not feeling well, or providing compassionate and thoughtful care to pets as they age, he strives to ensure that all pet companions and their families receive the time, care, and attention they deserve as if they were his own family.
Growing up as a U.S. Navy 'brat', Dr. Jo Valentine knew at a very young age she had the aspiration to help pets that are sick or in pain. She knew she had to grow up to be an animal doctor.
Her goal with every pet is to make life better any way she can. She does so while nurturing strong bonds with clients and pets by cultivating a trusting and harmonizing partnership. She is committed to keeping pets healthy and strives to offer an understanding to pet owners.
