Contact Person: Dr Robert J Craig

Job Description: Hello There!

I am Dr Robert Craig owner of Pineville Pet Hospital,inc. I am a 1990 Grad of LSU-SVM (and I am sure anyone looking at this ad will think of me as an old Geezer..lol) but we do have what I consider to be a progressive small animal practice here in Central Louisiana.We are currently a four doctor practice with three busy doctors..therefore this ad.

A quick listing of what the practice has for you to work with.

  • Three very seasoned veterinarians on staff to assist your professional growth...if wanted or needed.
  • full service Idexx Lab system used heavily for daily diagnostics -Fugi CR digital x-ray(may go DR soon but the image quality is so good I have been in no rush) -high quality Sonoscape S9 touchscreen ultrasound with three probes; micro-convex,10 mhz linear ,and cardiac phased array(the 10 mhz doesn't go too deep but has the best image I have ever seen)
  • New Isoflourane anesthesia unit with the lastest MidMark full suite of multi-parameter monitoring including temperature,ekg,pulse oximetry, blood pressure and capnography(this is my most trusted parameter to monitor closely) -currently a 4 exam room practice but nearing completion of an expansion with two additional exam rooms and a comfort room for hospitalized visitations and end of life management, as well as additional retail space and doctors private offices.

Reasons to consider us personally:

  • Great atmosphere with very easy going professional group that is comfortable with you doing things "your way" and practicing medicine the way you want to as long as the attitude and end results are good.
  • Much lower cost of living relative to most "Big City',or beach town,resort type environments -Amazing number of public accessible lakes,rivers,parks and National Forrest  for your outdoor activity needs.
  • Very negotiable salary compensation ( seasoned vets feel free to call as well!), paid health coverage,vacation,Simple IRA included.

We need at least one full time doctor but would love to have one doctor three to four days a week to cover off days by other professional staff as well!

Looking for that "right" first time job or you feel a bit stuck in a situation and would consider a change in, workplace environment,  location environment, or just different schedule/hours options...consider us!

One more thing to note....we are in a great location but our facility looks a bit dated to the mid nineties when it was first built. We have added on in the rear about a decade back but we have just finished moving the adjacent home off property owned by the practice and have greatly expanded parking both front and rear ,with a drive thru access as well. the entire front of the practice will be getting a new look exterior as the expansion finishes up this Summer and we really think we will have a very modernized look fitting the quality medicine practiced within.

Thanks so much for considering us.

Please contact me at the office: 318.449.4738,on my cell at 318.446.2276 or via my personal email at robertcraigdvm@gmail.com 

Be assured that its okay to just "go fish" even if you may stay where you are as any correspondence whatsoever will be held in my most strict confidence.
