The Poland Veterinary Centre Team

We believe that pets are members of the family, and they deserve the same medical care and consideration that all the other family members receive.  An important part of our mission is to educate pet owners on how to care for their pets properly so that they can be a part of the health care delivery team.  This is the best way to ensure that pets receive the best possible care. One of the things that makes our clinic special is our team of well-trained and caring staff members.  We all have pets of our own, and we understand the special bond between a pet and its family. Our staff takes pride in staying abreast of the latest developments in veterinary medicine and in relaying that information to our clients.  Things change rapidly in the medical field, and we work diligently to keep up with those changes.  Our staff members enjoy attending seminars and workshops to learn more about their work, and we also do a lot of training in the hospital.  Doctors and staff members often make presentations to the rest of the staff so that we can all learn from one another. We enjoy getting to know our clients and their families.  People often reminisce about the "good old days" of caring doctors who took the time to listen to their patients.  We strive to live up to that standard every day.  Each one of our staff members cares about our clients, our patients and each other.  This caring attitude shows through in everything we do.
