Barbe Glenn, DVM
After graduation from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr.
Glenn entered a rotating internship in medicine, surgery and emergency care at a
specialty hospital in Albuquerque, NM. Her interest in critical care, internal medicine
and emergency medicine brought her back to her home state of Arizona where she furthered
her career working as an emergency doctor in one of the most well equipped specialty
hospitals in Arizona. Surrounded by Board Certified Specialists in Internal Medicine,
Oncology, Anesthesia, Dermatology, Surgery and Ophthalmology, Dr. Glenn realized
she wanted to bring this level of care to the cat and dog community of Chandler
and Gilbert. After meeting Dr. Jamie Schmidt and practicing together in the Phoenix
area, they decided to open a state of the art facility in the vibrant community
of Chandler. Dr Glenn has found her home and community here and looks forward to
meeting you and your furry family members soon. Call today for an appointment with
Jamie Schmidt, DVM
Dr. Schmidt was born and raised in Kansas. His Midwestern approachability served
him well while attending Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine
where he excelled in the rigorous small animal program. At Kansas State University,
Dr. Schmidt earned certificates of appreciation for his dedication to his patients
and clients. His enjoyment of the desert and Arizona brought Dr. Schmidt to his
position as the lead doctor at a small animal clinic in Chandler. Dr. Schmidt's
professionalism and surgical skills quickly earned him a stellar reputation as an
excellent small animal veterinarian. That well-deserved reputation continues here
at LifeCare Animal Hospital. Call today for an appointment with Dr. Schmidt!
