At Button Veterinary Hospital we consider our clients and their pets as family. We are a fun-loving group with a team of compassionate and hard-working staff. We are in search of the right veterinarian to join our team. We have a variety of personalities that mesh well together and want our next veterinarian to first and foremost care about our patients and clients and endeavor to provide high quality medicine, create lasting relationships with our clients and be willing to share your knowledge with both our veterinarians and our support staff. We are open to both part-time and full-time associates. Everyone says it, but we value a work/life balance for all our staff and we think we do a good job!
ABOUT THE TEAM:
We decided to let the staff tell you about our team. Here are some of the things they had to say:
Our team is caring and compassionate, which of course, is key to high quality patient care.
The team members see us as a well-oiled machine, efficient but flexible and open to new avenues of patient care, always striving to improve the medicine we provide.
Our senses of humor are important to us, we like to have fun and appreciate being able to be silly.
The team feels that we are a solid unit that works well together and a positive group, always ready to say yes!
We also heard that the team is treated equally, no matter their role in the team and that we are treated as high value employees, integral to our practice.
The staff found it beneficial is that we regularly give/receive positive feedback and are encouraged to grow. We consider ourselves laid back and peaceful with no tolerance for drama and backstabbing.
ABOUT THE PRACTICE:
We are in the process of planning a relocation to a facility just 3 ½ miles from our current location. We are moving to be able to accommodate our growing clientele, expand our services and improve our overall work environment. We are open to expanding our services to include a candidate’s specials interest such as ultrasound, class IV therapeutic laser therapy, surgical, holistic care, behavioral, etc (we are currently implementing the use of our new class IV laser and are adding an ultrasound later this year).
Our Core Values:
Patient Care - We are committed to providing compassionate, ethical, & quality care to our patients using progressive medical knowledge and sound judgment.
Client Service - We strive to understand our client's needs & provide consistent service with honesty and integrity.
Team - We regard our employees as our greatest strength and treat them with the respect and care worthy of a valued resource.
