Hi, my name is Dr. Andrew Church. I grew up in Seattle and moved to the Poconos in 1996.
I have been working in veterinary medicine since my days in Seattle where I worked as a veterinary assistant for 3 years before moving east. I also had my own dog training business where I specialized in "problem" dogs and protection training.
After moving to Pennsylvania I attended East Stroudsburg University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Biology with a chemistry minor. I continued my work as a dog trainer and got a job as a veterinary assistant at a local veterinary hospital. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005 with my VMD degree I returned that same hospital to work as a veterinarian. It became evident very quickly that my "vision" for veterinary medicine was very different than that of my employer. It was at that time, in 2008, that I decided that I could better serve the community by opening my own veterinary clinic near Blakeslee PA. With that decision, and a HUGE amount of support from the community, Blakeslee Animal Clinic was born!
In the 5 years since we have opened we have been blessed with a growing business and an amazingly wonderful clientele. We are proud to now care for pets from the entire Pocono area, New Jersey, New York, and parts of Eastern PA!
Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to continuing many years of veterinary services to the Pocono Mountain area residents and their beloved pets. If you're already a client, thank you. If you are simply just checking us out, welcome. I look forward to someday meeting your 4-legged, 2-legged, or no-legged family member!
