Appelbaum Animal Clinic, a family-owned, rapidly growing small animal clinic in the heart of Tulsa, OK, is seeking a full time associate veterinarian to help us grow even more. Our work ethic is to get clients and patients cared for, but to enjoy what we do while we do it. We are a single doctor practice, and our doctor has 25 years of experience. The first 21 years were in a 4 doctor private small animal practice, but when corporate buyers came calling, Dr. Appelbaum parted ways, and Appelbaum Animal Clinic came to be. Qualifications include not only the ability to practice high quality veterinary medicine and care for dogs and cats, but to care for clients as well. Any level of experience will be considered, including new graduates. We are a dog and cat clinic only, but an interest in exotic medicine will be considered. We have in-house lab, DR digital radiology, full anesthetic monitoring (oximetry, ECG, etc), and therapy laser, and are looking to add ultrasound. We treat a wide variety of patients, from well patient preventive medicine (vaccine/parasite control) to complicated internal medicine, dermatologic, and surgical cases (routine spay/neuter, soft tissue, dentistry, and some orthopedic surgery). We treat most of our patients in-house, but also have a great working relationship with the referral/ER centers in Tulsa and at Oklahoma State University College of Vet Med for the most complicated cases. Excellent salary and benefits package, commensurate with experience. Our support staff has years of experience in patient care and management. and we lean on them heavily to make the doctor workload more manageable. And, as an added bonus, we all enjoy working with each other; our staff actually like coming to work.
Tulsa is the second largest city in Oklahoma, and is approximately 110 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. We don't have any oceans nearby, but we have tons of other things to pique a wide variety of interests. Too many lakes to count, native American culture and history, museums, a great local music scene, and a variety of sports (college and professional) can be found within our region. Tulsa is a large city with a small town feel, and very family friendly.
If you have a great sense of humor and can enjoy working with a wide variety of clients, patients, and staff, we want to hear from you. Come grow, and help us grow.
Qualified candidates should have a good grasp on the management of a wide variety of medical and surgical patients, including preventive care and complex internal medicine cases. Basic surgical and dentistry skills are a must, but no orthopedic surgical experience is required. Ultrasound experience will be strongly considered, as we intend to add this service to our clinic.
After hours calls are answered on a rotating basis, but the doctor has the option to see emergencies or to send to the local ER.
Weekend duties: shared/rotated
Most importantly, a client service orientation is a must.
Additional Salary Information: Salary commensurate with ability and experience. Benefits include CE allowance, organization membership, DEA/OBN license, uniform/equipment allowance.
