efficient manner and to provide veterinary care in a personal, small-town atmosphere.
Curtsinger Animal Hospital utilizes the latest in veterinary technology such as an in-house lab, digital radiography, digital
dental radiography, digital ultrasound, otoendoscopy, advanced anesthetic monitoring and tonometry.
One of the most significant expenses in providing healthcare is the physical structure of the healthcare facility. The trend in
human healthcare is to locate in multi-business complexes rather than a free-standing building in order to reduce overhead
expenses. Dr. Curtsinger chose to build the hospital in a multi-business complex to reduce the cost of veterinary care
without compromising the quality of veterinary care.
The last goal was to provide veterinary care in a personal, small-town atmosphere. Drs. Curtsinger, Miller and Odom have
previous experience at large, multiple doctor hospitals but prefer to practice in a smaller and more personal hospital
atmosphere. The doctors believe that is important to provide owners with options for veterinary care that range from the
most advanced care available to best care available for the owner’s budget.
Curtsinger Animal Hospital was founded in 2004 and is conveniently located to serve the Indian Land, Fort Mill, Sun City,
Ballantyne, Waxhaw and South Charlotte areas. The doctors and staff welcome clients to tour the hospital facility.
