How it all began...
Doctors Jeremy Hodges, Shane West, Frank McClure, and Brent Chandler came together in 2011 to break ground on what is now Lake Crest Animal Clinic.
After an exhaustive search for an ideal location to build a new clinic, they settled on an undeveloped plot of land at the corner of John Hawkins Parkway and Lake Crest Drive. Extensive amounts of earth moving and "dirt work" were needed to bring the ground level up enough to be able to build upon. A large retaining wall was built to stabilize the lot and the building process began. The building was completed in June 2012 and Lake Crest was finally able to open its doors to the public later that same month.
Initially, all of the partners split time at Lake Crest from day to day. Dr. Sara Choquette joined our team as an associate in August 2016 and Dr. Traci Williams, most recently, joined us in September 2020.
