Dr. Joel joined the practice in 2019 after practicing in North Carolina for 10 years. He grew up in North-West Ohio and graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 (the same class as Dr. Jacob and Dr. Nick). He enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, especially working with older animals and their owners to help them live their best quality of life. Outside of work he’s spent the last few years training for several triathlons and hopes to complete an Ironman triathlon in the future. He has a green thumb and enjoy indoor and outdoor gardening, as well as learning about nature. He has two dogs, Tucker and Wally, and a cat, Portia, along with several pet reptiles.
We took our German Shepherd, that is less than social, as a new patient. We have struggled trying to get an ear problem improved. Dr. Emily Benedict was awesome. She was patient and spent a lot of time with us explaining everything. We ended up having a minor surgery and it ended up being a little bit beyond closing time. We were never rushed by the staff. This was a much better experience for our pet and us than we were having at our last vet. This is a very nice large facility with drinks and snacks for us humans. I can highly recommend not only Dr. Benedict but the entire staff
I had a Bearded Dragon who was having trouble breathing and it was Saturday around 1:30 They were able to take my emergency in a half hour. Dr Joel sat with me and went over my Bearded Dragon's whole background and relayed new info I did not know. My dragon got oxygen and seems to be doing better. I feel if they didn't get me in that day my baby would not have made it. Thank You so much! Even tho it is 35 minutes away I may just switch to this vet because it is well worth the drive!
The employees are friendly and professional. My dogs are always well taken care of. When picking my dogs up I always receive a summary of their stay, and any problems if applicable. The facility is always clean. I am very happy with the services we have received over the years. Highly recommend.
