Veterinary Dermatologist

Job Description:

A Great Lakes Veterinary Specialists, a 24-hour specialty practice and pillar of the Cleveland veterinary referral community for over 25 years, is currently looking for a board-certified or board-eligible Dermatologist to join our growing practice.

Originally founded as a single-doctor practice, Great Lakes has grown into a small collection of specialists. It ultimately became a 24-hour ER hospital and moved to a custom-designed, 15,000 square-foot facility and solidified its reputation as one of the premier specialty hospitals in Ohio.  

The 2013 move into the massive, state-of-the-art facility enabled our specialists to work in beautiful surroundings while simultaneously enabling them to offer additional services. The building has 11 exam rooms, 3 surgical suites, an 8-slice CT, MRI access next door, multiple O2 cages, incubators & ultrasounds, a lap tower, and dedicated rooms for both chemotherapy and radiation iodine treatments. It would be tough to find a facility as well equipped and in as inviting a space as this one.

A beautiful building with excellent equipment means nothing without the accompanying staff. The hospital currently employs 15 doctors which include 6 ER Doctors, 3 Interns, and specialists in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Oncology, Ophthalmology, and Critical Care. Along with our doctors, the hospital also has a very established and experienced support staff including 25 technicians of which 18 are licensed. And although every hospital has some drama, this really is a drama-free zone with a very collegial and familial feel. Yes, this is a hospital but everyone considers and treats it as home!
