Dear Valued Clients,
We would like to begin by saying thank you for being so flexible and understanding over the last few weeks. We have had a lot of twists and turns and we are so luck to have such loyal clients sticking with us through everything. That being said, we would like to share with you what has been in the making.
Dr. Kim Nicholas has decided that he would like to retire before he hits 75. He has searched far and wide for a doctor who could take over and run this place with as much compassion and love has he has given over the years. Don't fret, Dr. Nicholas will still be seeing patients and doing surgeries, but he will be limiting himself to just a few days per week.
As some of you already know, Dr. Keri Dertinger is no longer working at Cedar River. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we will do our best to accommodate her clients to the best of our ability.
Last but not least, our newest family member. Dr. Mihai Aluas is taking over ownership of Cedar River Animal Hospital. He has been practicing veterinary medicine for 14 years, most recently in Sumner. We are all very excited to welcome him to our little family. We will officially be welcoming him as a practicing doctor on Tuesday September 6th, 2016, so please call for an appointment or stop in to say hello.
If you have any questions or concerns please let us know. Again, thank you all so much for your patience and understanding through this transition.
