Excellent workplace environment and culture! If you don’t believe us, then check out what one of our current employees has to say about working for Wilkinson Animal Hospital:
"When I came to work at Wilkinson Animal Hospital over 20 years ago, I didn't realize where the journey would take me. What I thought was going to be just a stepping stone in my career, turned into a very stable mountain that has supported me well. The team allows me to grow the way that I want to and helps guide me when I need it. I enjoy working with the staff, the clients, and their pets. The motto is true, "Pets AND their People are special."
With the addition of Southern Veterinary Partners, it has made the practice even better. I now know the vision that Dr. Gill has will be carried forward into the far future. SVP lets us practice medicine the way we want to and support us with what we need. And being part of a larger practice group allows us to offer better insurance, better retirement benefits, and more back office assistance. This allows us to attract and retain even more qualified staff than ever and focus on providing the best quality of medicine possible."
