"As a new graduate veterinarian, I was very nervous to start my new job and move to a new city – 4 years on I’m so glad I did! Summerfields has been such a supportive environment, allowing me to grow and learn new techniques with somebody ‘having my back’ if I ever need it. Moving to North Texas has also been great. I love living in Fort Worth – it has all the benefits of a major city with some gorgeous countryside just a few minutes’ drive away!" – Dr. Chris – Team Member
