Patti

Position: Receptionist
Education: Wilkes-Barre Radiologic Technology Program – Registered Radiology Technician

Are you from this area?

Yes, born and raised here

Why are you in Veterinary Medicine?

I actually do not have a background in Veterinary Medicine, but have worked as a radiology technician for many years.  Dr. McGarry is my daughter and when she took over the practice from Dr. Bishop and needed some help at the office I offered to come and work.  Since starting here I have learned a great deal about Veterinary medicine and love being able to take care of clients and patients needs.

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to help clients.  When someone calls our office I do my very best to be sure that they know we want to help them and their pet, whether it be to make an appointment to update their vaccines, refill their pet’s medications, or because their pet isn’t feeling well, I want all of our clients to know that we will care for their pet just like they are one of our own.

Why do you work for SAAH?

I have worked for SAAH since 2015 and I love how we all work together as a team to get the job done.  Although we may have our own roles here that we fill at the hospital at the end of the day we are all here to help each other and to make sure that we can efficiently care for our patients and clients.

What do you do as a hobby or on your time off?

I love to spend with my family.  My husband, Pat and I have three children, a granddaughter, and our dog Quila.  We like going to Home Depot, listening to live music, and going out to dinner.
