Meet our Lead Doctor team

Our top-notch pet care is made possible by our devoted and experienced Lead Doctor team. Our Lead Doctors are responsible for ensuring the highest quality of care is followed across all hospitals. 

What makes our practice group unique

The PetMedic practice group started with its first practice, Seven Hills Pet Hospital, in 2009. Over the past twelve years, we have grown to four practices located throughout the Las Vegas valley. 

From the beginning, our #1 focus has been on the client-patient relationship. We are committed to educating our clients on pet wellness and preventive care as a way to ensure the highest quality of life with your pet-family. We believe in embracing new technologies as a way to stay current with latest advancement in veterinary medicine.

Whatever your pet’s needs are, we are here to help. 

Our Core Values



Integrity is the foundation of our culture. We want to build meaningful relationships between clients and staff members and that means being honest, true to our word, and always acting with a strong moral compass.


Transparency & Clarity

Transparency is the bedrock of trust. We encourage direct communication by exhibiting clear intentions and holding each other accountable.


Efficiency & Collaboration

Our goal is to deliver the most efficient and effective veterinary care through means of collaboration and organization. We are proactive and solution-oriented, which means no compromising on your time and effort.



We want our community to grow with us. By being a leader in the community for veterinary care and education, we hope to inspire others to seek truth, think outside the box, and never stop learning.



Everyone has unique capabilities, and we strive to honor the individual strengths of each staff member. We want to build a diverse, passionate team of go-getters, who are encouraged to be their most genuine selves. By building this community with diligence and care, we will all be able to achieve our shared goals.


Strive For Excellence

We are always looking for new ways to help better serve our community and clients, which is why we utilize state-of-the-art technology and train our staff to deliver veterinary care that goes above and beyond.

Why our clients love us


It took me about four different vets to finally find Providence Pet Hospital and as of right now I am super happy that I did. They are extremely thorough, kind, and genuine. All the ladies here are professional and actually care about your animals. You don't feel like you're getting the runaround or overpaying for services or being charged for things you actually didn't need like other vets.

I love this place and so does my Maltipoo, Princess! The staff truly cares about your pet and are flexible with their hours. They have taken great care of her since the day we got her and even though we recently moved 45 minutes away, we will always use Paradise Pet Hospital!

-Kari S., Google Reviewer


Highly recommend this clinic. Friendly, competent staff and doctor. Our Boston, Lola, is older and blind in one eye and can get very nervous. They handled her with so much compassion and gentleness, it was a great experience for her, and us. She had allergies and severe itching. By the next day, her itching has subsided. So happy we found the wonderful care for Lola at Northwest Pet Hospital.

-Stacey E., Yelp Reviewer
