Dr. Briana Patten
I am very excited to join the team of veterinarians at Countryside Veterinary Hospital and have the opportunity to meet the clientele. I am an Auburn University animal sciences and veterinary school graduate. After school, I worked 3 years at a mixed animal practice in Chattanooga, TN. My fiance and I moved to the Rocket City and bought our Golden Doodle, Tripp, a house here, as he loves his big fenced in backyard.
As a veterinarian, I am very passionate about preventative health care as the best way to treat any disease. It is the best time for our profession as the human animal bond continues to grow, and I find great satisfaction in helping our four-legged family members live abundant and long lives alongside us. My personal pet and I enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, and thrift store shopping. I would love to hear about you and your pets lifestyle and personally tailor a whole body approach that works best to fit the family's needs.
