AAHA small animal practice in affluent coastal south Florida community looking for another full time doctor. We have digital X-ray and digital dental X-ray, therapeutic laser, ultrasound, 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.
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. A 2nd position for a newer graduate is possible as the clinic is growing rapidly. (We recently lost an associate who followed her partner when he got a job offer. We were already looking for a 3rd associate before she left.) Strong medicine skills are a must. Bonus points if you also have good surgical skills, but Dr Sutton does most of the surgeries and dentals at present. We'd love to have another strong surgeon, but if you don't do surgery it's fine.
Who are you? You enjoy learning and staying abreast of medicine. When you go to conferences you sit through every lecture possible. Perhaps you are a future STUDENT EXTERN hoping to experience a fun practice atmosphere and might use the opportunity as an interview. 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.
