Meet the team
A word from the owner
Some of my first memories are of my visits to to the Sheffield PDSA charity veterinary hospital, where my father was the senior veterinary surgeon. Having followed in his footsteps and qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2005, I spent time in a large small animal hospital in Essex followed by several years with the veterinary team at Battersea Cats and Dogs Home in London. I returned to private small animal practice with a 2 week locum stint at ‘Denton Veterinary Surgery’ in Wokingham where, 10 years later, I remain!
I immediately fell in love with the old fashioned personal ‘family vet’ ethos and then in 2015 when I was presented with the opportunity to purchase the practice, there was only one choice. I moved to the area with my wife Laura (another vet and co-owner of the practice), our young family and our one-of-kind rescue dog Bert.
I enjoy all aspects of small animal veterinary practice and have particular interests in animal behaviour (which I studied to degree level at Kings College London half way through my veterinary degree) and general surgery. My ambition for the practice is to continue to cultivate a warm and friendly environment in which my staff can work to provide excellent care with clinical freedom, where animals feel safe and comforted and where owners feel they are informed and involved as we make clinical decisions together.
