Veterinary Medicine: It's a people business Part 2

Today I want to talk about another group of people who make coming to work fun every single day of the week. That would be the staff of The Country Doctor. I have worked at three different veterinary clinics over my 23 year career in veterinary medicine and 14 of those years have been at Country Doctor. I have worked with many excellent people over the years, but I can honestly say that the group of people I work with right now are the best! Dr. Curie has assembled what I commonly refer to as the "dream team". From the receptionists to the veterinary assistants/technicians to the office manager, every single person here is caring, dedicated and hard working. I have so much respect for every person and the job they do. It is very cool to have so many intelligent, smart women all working together. I love how everyone wants to learn more. That is a great personality trait for anyone. I love coming to work knowing that I have highly skilled veterinary assistants and techicians to help me care for my patients. Because I have worked at other clinics, I know the high quality of care that patients receive at Country Doctor. It just knocks my socks off.

Recently we got to enjoy each other's company away from the office at a cookout at Dr. Curie's farm. Have you ever seen a better looking group of people? We enjoyed fried perch and homegrown chicken and about 10 different side dishes. Then there was bocce ball and cornhole and a walk to Dr. C's lake. Ok, that last part ended in getting soaked by a little rain shower, but it was still fun! What a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. A big thank you to my "other" family for making my life better!

  1. I agree what a great group of people!

  2. What I love so much about this blog is it is like hearing from a good friend. The way you write is so down to earth I look forward to reading the posts, hearing about the pets, the practice, the shelter, the town and so on.
    Your blog reminds me very much of the show: News from Lake Wobegon. The little town where "all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average."
    I love this blog and I love coming here for a visit. Keep up the great work.

  3. Don, thank you so much for your kind comments. ~DrDi
