About The Doctor
Dr. Robert Ratcliffe has always had a fondness for animals and their well being. From his early childhood memories of visiting the dairies his father worked at and summer vacations at various ranches, he has always been fascinated by the human-animal bond.
After graduating from St. John's University in New York and working in the human healthcare industry, Dr. Ratcliffe decided to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinarian. He was accepted at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2001. He quickly accepted a position as a mixed animal practitioner in Carroll County, Maryland. It was here that Dr. Ratcliffe traveled the rural countryside and fell in love with South Central Pennsylvania while tending to farm animals in York, Adams, and Lancaster Counties.
In 2007, an opportunity to own and operate his own animal hospital in the Pocono Mountains meant that he had to leave the countryside and people he admired. He made it a goal to return back to South Central PA once he was able to find an excellent associate to assist him in taking over the daily operations of his successful practice in the Poconos. He is very happy to be back with the people and in the part of Pennsylvania he considers the most beautiful! It is Dr. Ratcliffe's hope to meet you and your pets to support your special relationship with them through compassionate health care.
