Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital - Our Doctors

 

Dr. Tffiany Marchildon DVM

 Dr. Tiffany Marchildon DVM:

My name is Tiffany and I am the proud owner of Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital and Mobile Services.  I have wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I have been able to speak and I am so grateful for the opportunity to care for your pets.

I was born and raised in the area, and am still so honoured to call Georgian Bay my home.  My career in veterinary medicine started as a co-op student in high school.  It then progressed to working with Dr. Leann in the Mobile Serives, and then to joining her as an associate veterinarian when she first opened the doors of GBVH in 2010, the same year I graduated from vet school.  In 2017 I became a co-owner of the practice, which then transitioned to full ownership in the fall of 2019.  

Dr. Leann has been a wonderful business partner, mentor, and friend.  She will continue being an integral part of the practice, working primarily in the Mobile Services, where it all began. 

My passions in veterinary medicine include surgery, dentistry, anesthesia, and providing Fear Free medicine. 

I currently live in Elmvale with my husband Marek, our son Sebastian, our daughter Olive, our one-eye cat Pirate, and our three-legged mixed breed pup, Juniper.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, running, cooking, travelling, and most importantly spending time with family and friends. 

 

 

Dr. Leann Benedetti DVM

 Dr. Leann Benedetti, DVM

My name is Leann and I have been practicing Veterinary Medicine for 24 years. I am proud to be the founder of Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital and Mobile Services, having dedicated the last 16 years to building it into what it is today! I am lucky enough to be married to my wonderful husband Bob, and we have two amazing young adult sons. At the moment we only have one four legged family member-‘Smokey’ the cat. I love to garden, and recharge outdoors, especially on beautiful Georgian Bay. I have a sincere and ongoing love of learning – about veterinary medicine, life, and the Universe in general!

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Toxicology in 1992 and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1996. I started my career in mixed animal practice, then focused on small animal medicine and surgery with special interests in dermatology, dentistry, and internal medicine. In 2004, I started Georgian Bay Mobile Veterinary Services, one of the first mobile veterinary practices in Ontario. Rapid growth resulted in Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital being built in 2010 to complete the ‘package’ of veterinary services we could offer to our patients and clients. Throughout my career I have been committed to providing a “family-centered” veterinary practice, where pets and ‘their people’ receive high quality veterinary expertise, in a kind, compassionate, respectful way. I believe every pet is an individual, and every patient/client relationship is unique and special. I have treasured the wonderful relationships built over many years with my clients. I am truly humbled by the trust they have put in me to look after their beloved furry companions. I enjoy giving back to the profession by working with both the College of Veterinarians of Ontario, and the Ontario Veterinary College.

I absolutely recognize that my veterinary career would not have been possible without the wonderful team of people that have been part of my journey, and to all of them I am eternally grateful. While the individual members of the GBVH team have changed and grown over time I feel so privileged to have been able to work with such wonderful, strong, caring, compassionate people…past and present! In particular, I have had the honor of watching Dr. Tiffany grow from a teenage high school co-op student who aspired to get into veterinary school, into a strong, intelligent, compassionate, dedicated Veterinarian. More than that, I am proud to consider her my friend and am thrilled to be passing the legacy of GBVH over to her! Together, we have spent the last several months transitioning roles and in October 2019 Dr. Tiffany stepped into being the official ‘Owner & Operator’ of GBVH! I know that she will continue to provide quality medicine and service in true GBVH fashion!

In case you are wondering…Retirement is not in my near future! While my days of being ‘Owner’ of GBVH may be over, I will still be seeing my fantastic patients and clients 2 days a week. My passion and my purpose as a Healer and Veterinarian still burn strong, and I am excited about continuing to practice Veterinary Medicine with this wonderful team! I am also excited about working towards expanding my work with other veterinarians and veterinary team members in the fields of Coaching and Consulting, particularly in the areas of self awareness, leadership, and balancing professional and personal life.

 

 

 Dr. Lisa Fitch, DVM

Hi there! My name is Lisa and I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 2020. I am originally from the New Liskeard area and moved here in early 2020 with my husband Andrew, my son Jack, my dogs Lily and Thor and my cat Holly. In my spare time I love being at the beach or boating with family and friends.

My favourite aspects of veterinary medicine are surgery,  providing wellness programs for patients as well as fear free medicine. I love being a part of the Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital team and look forward to meeting you and your pet!


 

 Dr. Stephanie Hookey, DVM

My name is Stephanie and I recently joined the team at Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital. I grew up in the Niagara Region before leaving home to pursue post-secondary education in Guelph. I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2021 and spent one year working at a rural small animal practice in Grey Bruce before moving to Simcoe County to join the team at GBVH. 

I have a strong passion for discussing preventative health options including weight management and dental care. I enjoy performing surgeries and I am looking forward to growing my knowledge and skills in veterinary dentistry. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my partner, Josh and our beautiful Australian Shepherd, Maverick. Some of my favourite past times include hiking, biking, spending time at the beach and tending to my house plants and garden. 

I look forward to meeting you and your furry family members!
