Helping pets one at a time.
When Dr. Dan Jordan was a child, he first had a cat named Tai Ling. Tai Ling was a beloved member of the family, and he and Dr. Jordan spent hours together.
One day, his cat got sick… Tai Ling had an Upper Respiratory Infection, which caused his cat to hide away in his closet. Luckily, Dan was able to help. He syringe-fed his cat back to health and experienced his first success story before he ever considered going to veterinary school.
This experience stuck with him but was mirrored some years later when his cat got sick a second time: Tai Ling had more health problems, but this time Dan took his cat to the vet. Unfortunately, Tai Ling was unable to be saved, and Dan mourned him and wished there could have been something more he could have done to save his life.
That moment then solidified when Dan decided he would be a veterinarian to save the Tai Lings of this world. Fast forward to the present, and after forty years in the business, with countless surgeries and treatments, it’s safe to say that he has.
We work as a team.
After his first experience volunteering at a veterinary clinic when he was sixteen, the not-yet Dr. Dan Jordan went to veterinary school, and soon found himself working in another practice before he went on to found his own.
Dr. Jordan has since surrounded himself with a highly capable team of veterinary professionals that can save animals of all types from cats and dogs to birds, reptiles and other exotic creatures. All of the members of the team at Animal Medical Center of the Village love animals and they truly care about giving them the best possible outcomes.
As part of the team, we all know what it’s like to have a sick or unwell pet, and we keep that feeling in mind with every client interaction we have, always remembering to put ourselves in their shoes.
We also know the importance of clinic culture. Part of the reason why Dr. Jordan founded Animal Medical Center of the Village was that he realized how integral a clinic’s culture was with the veterinary treatment available. One of his first experiences as a young vet was in a toxic veterinary environment, and so he broke away to found his own practice just a year later. He thought he could do a better job when it came to offering an open positive culture for the clients and the veterinary staff involved, and he believes that it ultimately creates better patient care.
As Dr. Jordan likes to say, “We all understand that we work as a team, we work as a whole: if the team is broken, the clinic is broken.”
