Dr. Ronald Schechter founded Governor Animal Clinic in 1977 and was joined by Dr. Kirk Feinberg in 1987, and Dr. Julie Sorenson in 1998. Dr. Kathy Kaleka came on board as a licensed independent contractor in 2001. As our clinic continued to grow, Dr. Heather Oman joined us in 2003. We proudly introduced two more doctors to our GAC family in 2007 with the addition of Dr. Marie Benitez.
Our veterinary staff is a compassionate group of individuals who work together as a team to provide the best care for you and your pets. Your first contact with our clinic is through our reception team. They can help you with just about any question or problem you may have, or can turn you in the right direction for answers. You will meet up with our outpatient technicians and assistants when your pet has an exam appointment. They work directly with the doctors during your pet’s visits with us. When your pet is admitted into the clinic for a procedure, surgery, or nursing care the inpatient team can be trusted to assist our doctors in providing care for your pets.
