Terry Stephen DVM founder of Evergreen Animal Hospital 2007-2018

After co-owning Evergreen Veterinary Service for 24 years, Dr. Terry Stephen along with his wife, Marsha Munro, decided to open their own Hospital in 2007. When the doors opened at Evergreen Animal Hospital it became the first practice in the area to offer 24-hour emergency care with a doctor on site. Dr. Terry’s long-standing caring reputation gave the community trust in this new emergency hospital. For the next ten years, they continued to offer around the clock emergency care until Dr. Terry’s untimely death in 2017. Marsha still strives to carry on Terry’s legacy but needed to scale back the overnight Emergency service.

This restructuring allowed for maintaining a high quality of care without overextending the veterinarian’s workload. Extended hours have been added for the clients to schedule health care for their pets without having to take time off work. Monday – Friday 7 am to 9 pm and Saturday & Sunday 7 am to 7 pm. Starting in February of 2019, Sunday hours will also include wellness visits as well as emergencies. Sundays even have grooming available with Sam.

Elizabeth Grimshaw, DVM, has been with the practice for a few years. She provides not only great medical and surgical skills but a little extra with her special interest in exotics and rabbits.

Feline companions are not an afterthought at EAH; they have their own waiting area as well as a cat-only exam room. If an extended stay is needed, there is a feline treatment room and ward for cats only. If you are looking for a veterinarian with feline experience, Dr. Krys Major-Lovan particularly enjoys working with cats. Dr. Bridget Roche is one of our newest doctors coming all the way from Scotland. Her friendly smile and laugh will win anyone over. Dermatology is one of her areas of interest.

Dr. Jennifer Fick a board-certified surgeon performs orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. For pets suffering from heart conditions, we have Geri Lake-Bakaar DVM, ACVIM available for ultrasound and consultations.

With their emphasis on urgent care, Evergreen Animal Hospital keeps up on the latest in-house lab equipment. Getting accurate results quickly is a necessity in emergency medicine but it also allows them to offer quick turnaround for their general practice patient’s tests. This makes clients happy with not having to come back for results and drugs on another date. Preoperative blood work is always recommended before any type of anesthesia to help ensure a positive outcome. With their extensive in-house lab equipment, this is an easy task.

Sheila Brunson is the newest addition to the management staff at Evergreen Animal Hospital and she brings a great deal of experience with her. Sheila has worked in the veterinary field for many years, recently managing a practice in Conifer.
