It is with a heavy heart but overwhelming support that we announce Dr. Angie Summers is stepping down from her permanent associate position with Newtown Vet effective at the end of the October.
Dr. Summers joined the Newtown Vet Hospital immediately after graduating from vet school and has been with us for more than 19 years! We have been together through tremendous growth of Newtown Vet and the growth of her family. Newtown Vet has grown from 4 vets working in a 4,000sf facility to 8 doctors and our state of the art, 10,000sf facility. We have been with Angie from her marriage to Danny through the birth and growth of her 3 awesome boys. We have “grown up” together and the impact we have had on one another will not end with this separation. We will forever be connected, and I am sure many of you reading this letter feel the same way!
Angie has been instrumental in keeping Newtown Vet at the front of the curve relative to treatment of behavioral conditions and too many areas of internal medicine for us to list here. We have enjoyed watching her grow from a freshly minted new graduate to a seasoned senior associate. She has lived our values at work and outside of work always supporting our community outreach and educating children with hospital tours and classroom talks. She has been a major supporter of our shift toward “fear free” vet visits. The impact she has had on her patients and their owners is obvious and further supported by her perennial presence as a finalist in the Best of Bucks/Mont Best Vet category which she has won multiple times.
At this time, Dr. Summers has elected to transition to an industry position where she can continue to impact the lives of companion animals by educating and supporting the doctors who serve them. We are sure that she will miss her patients and the clients that she has bonded with over the past 2 decades as much as they will miss her, but she is excited about this next chapter of her career. We would never want to see her leave but support her decision and wish her only the best.
With love from all,
The Doctors & Staff at Newtown Vet
