Animal Dermatology Clinic has opened a new, full-time dermatology specialty practice in Indianapolis, Ind. The 2,800 square foot facility features four exam rooms, a treatment area and a procedure room for laser surgeries, allergy testing, biopsies, video otoscopy, diagnostic testing and on-site treatments in a quiet environment.
Co-owner Joel Griffies, DVM, Dipl ACVD, said this clinic will efficiently address the needs of clients throughout Indianapolis as well as outlying areas throughout the state. “We have been fortunate in finding such a prime central location for the clinic at beautiful Clearwater Shoppes on the Northside of Indianapolis,” he said.
In addition to the grand opening, the clinic adds Lori Thompson, DVM, DACVD to its team of doctors. Dr. Thompson, an Indianapolis native, is a Purdue graduate and diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology.
An open house for referring veterinarians and clients to tour the clinic and meet Dr. Thompson and staff is planned from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, March 14 at the 3901 East 82nd Street location. As the Indianapolis clinic’s full-time doctor and co-owner, Dr. Thompson will treat small animals, horses, exotic animals, and consult with the Indianapolis Zoo.
Founded in 1980 by Dr. Craig Griffin, Animal Dermatology Clinic is the first privately owned clinic approved by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology to provide a residency program, and is the largest group of veterinary dermatologists across the globe. Since 1980, Animal Dermatology Clinic has expanded to include seven full-time clinics in California, Georgia, Kentucky and Indianapolis, 14 satellite locations throughout California, Georgia, Kentucky and Indiana, and more expansion is planned.
