My name is Mikie Dawson and I graduated in 2007 from Washington State University. My husband and I own the Waynesboro Veterinary Clinic and we are looking for an exceptional new doctor to join our team. As a veterinarian, you will not have any trouble finding a job but I encourage you to find the RIGHT job!
I have a deep love for internal medicine and I spend many hours performing echocardiograms and abdominal ultrasounds. I also perform a wide variety of surgeries but I have a relentless dedication to medical problem solving and a deep passion for clinical pathology. Dr. Twigg (Virginia Tech – 2012), Dr. Welsh (University of Kansas – 2012), Dr. Adkins (Purdue University – 2014), Dr. Grimes (UPenn – 2016), and Dr. Glass (OSU - 2020) are all excellent surgeons and diagnosticians! They each have their own specialties (including exotics) and each provide a unique perspective to our cases. I am very proud of our medical team!
As a new veterinarian to any hospital, it will be important that you have a team of colleagues to give you the support you need to be a confident surgeon and diagnostician. We solve cases as a team when we are puzzled and support each other when the cases are demanding and/or difficult. We work very hard to get our patients well and back home to their families. We all attend CE regularly and we make a point to encourage the professional interests of each doctor and staff member. We offer a wide spectrum of diagnostics and treatments including echo, ultrasound, endoscopy, laser therapy, cryo-surgery, digital radiography, and orthopedic surgery. Additionally, we continuously look to add new technologies to our practice to enhance and expand our services.
As further proof of what a great place this is to work, we have 7 licensed technicians, 5 veterinary assistants, 7 receptionists, and more on the way! They are all knowledgeable and responsible in their respective focuses. Their technical competency allows us to be efficient in our work because we doctors are confident in their abilities. We have low employee turnover and one of our licensed techs has worked at our hospital for over 30-years! One of our receptionists has been at our clinic for 24-years! Other employees have been with our practice for 19, 16, 14, and 12 years (and still going strong!). Our clinic has a loyal and happy core team of staff members. Each employee contributes to the success and mission of our clinic.
Many of our staff members have spouses and children. This is a great place to work if you want to have a family because we understand the need to balance work and home life.
We are located in Waynesboro, PA which is approximately 35 minutes from Gettysburg, PA and Frederick, MD, and only 1.5 hours from both Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD.
We do not take after-hour emergencies because we are supported by an emergency clinic in Hagerstown, MD. We refer cases to VCA in Gaithersburg, MD, South Paws in Northern Virginia, UPenn, and Virginia Tech based on the specialty required.
For more information regarding our practice, please take a look at our website (www.waynesboroveterinaryclinic.com) and our Facebook (www.facebook.com/WaynesboroVeterinaryClinic). If you are interested in becoming part of our special and growing team, please contact our practice manager, Patrick, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
