This is because we have cultivated such a great work environment and we are looking for a professional but fun, compassionate vet to join our family.
About Our Facility
Evergreen Veterinary Care is a modern, fear free clinic located in the beautiful residential neighborhood of Evergreen. We are far enough from downtown Baltimore that we enjoy a nature trail within walking distance, nearby parks, and are surrounded by large, beautiful family homes in a great school district (Roland Park school district). We are close enough to down town though, that its just a short Uber drive (or bike ride) to Canton, Fells Point, Inner Harbor, theaters, night life, museums, and the list goes on. Our location makes us perfect for any lifestyle; for the young vet with a thriving social life, to a vet with a growing family or those looking for a slower pace, in a quieter place.
We value work/ life balance and can offer an attractive, flexible schedule of three 10 hour shifts per week with two 7 hour Sunday shifts per month with the option to work additional shifts only IF desired (for additional compensation of course). We are closed on Saturdays and there are no overnight or on-call shifts!
We are very lucky to have a clientele that is willing and has the resources to pursue diagnostics and treatments that we recommend.
Our clinic is conveniently located near a number of referral specialists and emergency hospitals for our clients to utilize.
Our facility has four spacious exam rooms, one of which is a feline- only room. The facility accommodates three full time veterinarians; however we never have more than two veterinarians seeing appointments at one time, which allows for good room flow.
Our surgery suite is fully equipped to handle routine surgeries as well as more advanced ones like splenectomies, gastrotomies, cystotomies, etc (we often transfer our advanced surgeries to overnight facilities for continued care after hours).
We pride ourselves on providing a high standard of care. We have anesthesia machines that use sevoflurane, employ full monitoring on every anesthetized patient- including capnography, use Nocita in all surgeries where its applicable, use cold laser therapy in post op for surgeries and dental extraction sites, take full mouth rads for all of our dentals, just to name a few examples.
The absolute best thing about our practice is our staff! Not only are they absolutely wonderful and skilled and reliable, but we are also well staffed; maintaining four full time support staff PER veterinarian. Our team is truly like a family- an open armed, no drama kind of family. Our culture is warm, professional, but fun. Its this environment that has kept turnover to a minimum and makes Evergreen such an awesome place to work.
