Partner Associate Veterinarian

Job description

Partner Associate Veterinarian at Truckee Meadows Veterinary Hospital – Reno, NV

Join us as a colleague, friend, and business partner at your own clinic! We offer a $100,000 sign on bonus for qualified full-time associates and the opportunity to join the hospital as a Partner in the future.

You run the day the way you want, spend time with the clients and patients as you like, practice the medicine you love with state-of-the-art tools and local management support. You have control over the medicine and your work-life balance. We take care of the rest.

Truckee Meadows Veterinary Hospital is a general practice veterinary hospital with modern equipment and managed with enterprise-level tools by veterans of the industry. We love Reno and are fortunate to live in such a special community. We work with the intention of growing sustainably, providing work-life balance for our staff, and promoting an internal atmosphere of support and positivity.

We are equipped to offer tools to make general practice successful – in-house and reference labs, digital radiology, ultrasound, state of the art anesthesia monitoring equipment and dental equipment, a well-stocked pharmacy, and an online pharmacy. Digital radiography and all radiographs are sent for radiology reports.

Dr. Kuester (Partner) cultivated a practice that is focused on quality medicine instead of quantity. We currently have 1 DVM and 1 LVT on staff, with a support staff of 6.

  • We have computers in each room!
  • We have tablets!
  • We use Idexx Neo!
  • Antech Reference Labs
  • Abaxis in-house equipment

Dr. Kuester loves working in a supportive and collaborative environment and is happy to mentor. She was a veterinary assistant for 10 years before attending veterinary school and has over 10 years of DVM experience in large specialty centers such as SAGE Veterinary Centers in the San Francisco Bay area as well as single and multi-doctor small animal clinics across the country. She is funny and has years of experience that she would love to share with the next Associate or future partner.

Labs? We have Idexx digital Xray. We have the full in-house Abaxis lab suite, i-Stat and use Antech for Reference Labs.

Surgeries and Dentals? We have state-of-the-art dental equipment, including a handheld dental x-ray unit and if desired, one day a week dedicated to dental and surgical procedures.

We have a modern GE Logiq 1 ultrasound system and work with an ultrasonagrapher who allows us to provide excellent, full diagnostic ultrasounds and echocardiograms with reports from internists and cardiologists.

We are looking ideally to add a new full-time vet to our practice, part-timers are welcome, but would need to work at least 2 days a week.

Dr. Kuester currently sees 30-minute appointments, but appointment times are flexible and can be shortened or extended at your discretion. We want you to have the time you need to provide the highest level of care possible.

We are well staffed with a veterinary assistant assigned to each case you see to make client communication and treatment plans seamless and help your workday flow. We utilize NEO for record keeping, which we have found to be a user-friendly practice management software. It can be accessed remotely, so makes working on records out of the office a cinch.

COVID? Currently we allow clients in the building for appointments but require masks to be worn at all times.

Compensation and benefits?

  • The practice is on track to generate $1million in revenue on 1 doctor. There are plenty of clients that need your care and even more to add.
  • We offer a competitive guaranteed base for full-time associates, good for those who are starting out and need to ramp up their skill level
  • Production %, benefits, and everything else is customizable based on the associate.
  • Signing/moving bonuses are negotiable.
  • 4 weeks PTO

Surrounding environment: It is just 45 minutes to beautiful Lake Tahoe and Sacramento is 1.5 hours away. We are surrounded by the Sierra mountains, there is no end to the outdoor activities to be found right outside your door. Are you a hiker, mountain biker or enjoy watersports, fishing, boating, skiing, or snow shoeing? Reno truly is the biggest little city, there is a well-developed nightlife, great restaurants, bars, offering a wide variety of entertainment. Reno is much more than casinos!

There are plenty of affordable homes and apartments in beautiful surroundings.
