Dr. Jamie Netschert
Dr. Netschert established the Clifton-Centreville Animal Clinic (CCAC), creating enduring relationships and providing wonderful care for animals and people alike. “Dr. N,” as he was affectionately referred to by many, built special relationships with numerous pets and their owners, as well as his many employees.
He loved seeing patients and clients and continued to practice during his two-and-a-half year struggle with melanoma, practicing medicine until his last month. He passed away in November 2016, and is dearly missed by all who knew him. Clifton-Centreville Animal Clinic's staff and doctors work to continue his legacy and uphold his values, practicing compassionate, personal medicine for clients and patients.
Dr. Netschert began his career in veterinary medicine when he received an undergraduate degree in Zoology from Weber State University in 1973. He attended Cambridge University Veterinary School from 1975 to 1980, earning an MA in Veterinary Medicine. From 1980 to 1982 he worked in a mixed animal practice in upstate New York. In 1983, he founded CCAC as an independent veterinary practice serving companion animals.
While providing care through CCAC, he also volunteered in the community, including participating in humane investigations, providing free spay and neuter clinics, and offering care for service animals through *Guiding Eyes for the Blind* and the Fairfax County Police Department K-9 Unit. Dr. Netschert believed in the inherent goodness of humanity and lived up to his highest ideals himself.
Dr. Netschert was a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the British Veterinary Association, and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
