Dr. Gordana Alimpic has been with VCA Lockwood Ridge Animal Hospital for over 7 years and is our Medical Director.  Dr. Christy Baran has just joined our practice as a staff veterinarian and is a great addition to our team.  Cathy Young joined the practice in April of 2014 as the Hospital Manager.  Amanda Costa, Charity Waldron and Denise Battle are the Veterinary Technicians and Jackie Fullford is our Veterinary Technician.  And last but not least, we have Jenny McKell as our office receptionist.
