Joey’s Staff Member of the Month

By Scott Lackenby | Dated March 12, 2015

22643_539492412911_3103696_nHey gang! How are you all? If you’ve been to the shops recently you will know that Easter is just around the corner. While I can’t believe how quickly the year is going, I am eggcited, (see what I did there!), that Easter is almost here. It means I will have a bunch of my friends back for Easter boarding! If you would like your feline friend to holiday with me in the cattery, please give the Nurses a call to reserve their place. Our cat boarding is very popular, I’m sure it’s because of me, and I would hate for your cat to miss out on spending some quality time with me!

This month I’ll be profiling a member of the GVH team that I’m having an unashamed bromance with. His chair is one of my favourite spots to have a nap and he spends a lot of time teasing me and roughing me up. That’s right, I’m talking about Dr John Morgan. Dr John has had two roles with us at GVH. He first started with us back in 2004 as Nurse John while he has studying to become a Vet at Sydney Uni. Dr John graduated in 2007 and his first job as a Vet was in Goulburn at the clinic Nurse Katrina’s family have been taking their animals to for 30years! Dr John worked in Goulburn until 2010 when he and his now fiance Sarah spent two years travelling around Canada where Dr John was a locum Vet in British Columbia. Dr John mostly worked in Vancouver, but went as far north as the Canadian-Alaskan boarder and also around Toronto in Ontario. When they returned to Australia, Dr John locumed around Sydney before starting with us in April 2013.

Dr John wanted to be a Vet as he was interested in Science and Biology and really didn’t want a job where he was stuck sitting at a desk all day. Dr John always had a love of animals, and his Uncle was Vet and Dr John always remembered how fondly he spoke of his job. Dr John loves surgery and cases involving joint disease, but really loves any case that poses a challenge. Dr John completed a Masters in Clinical Studies in 2013 and in June/July he will be sitting an exam for his Surgery Membership. Dr John says that the best part of the job is being able to come to work every day and knowing that it will present a new challenge. Not surprisingly, he says the worst part is having to say goodbye to patients that have become very special to him.

Growing up, Dr John’s first pet was a Beagle cross called Ralph who had a heap of personality and street smarts and was constantly surprising Dr John. Currently Dr John has a Galah called Dexter. Dexter is a feisty fellow who Dr John rescued while he was in Goulburn after he was found being attacked by Mynah birds. Dexter loves people and tearing the wall, furniture and carpet to shreds!

So, next time you are in, be sure to say hello to Dr John. He’s the tall Vet who is always smiling! Well, better go. There’s still things this busy Pymble Vet clinic cat needs to do before he can have his dinner! Meows for now, love Joey xoxo10152996_10152407869289048_365281652769737516_n

I can't rate Gordon Vet Hospital any higher. I took my 11yr old staffy in for surgery with the beautiful Imogene Ewen (amazing surgeon) and was managed by incredibly professional front office staff (Maddie). My dog, Coco was in the best of hands. The after care service is detailed and their love of animals is so very clear to all who enter. Exceptional service for the North Shore.

I took our little girl Coco for her very first vet visit yesterday. Dr Helen gave Coco a thoroughly check-up and provided me with useful information as the first time puppy owner. Coco is now enrolled in the puppy school and will return back for her 2nd vaccine in a couple of week!

Dr David and the team have provided real care, support and expertise for our furry family members over 25 years. They've also readily taken in injured wildlife. A great team of Vets and nurses - thanks for all you do!

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
