Dr. Frances Carter graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1984. She also received her B. S. and a Masters of Science from the University of Florida. She opened Buck Lake Animal Hospital in May 1987. Her husband, David Folsom, is a retired general contractor. All of their daughters attend or have graduated from Florida State University.
Dr. Chelsie Levitan has worked at Buck Lake Animal Hospital since 1999. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School. Her husband, Don, is a professor in the Biology Department at Florida State University. Her son is a gator and her daughter is attending Appalachian State University.
The remaining support staff consists of long timers such as Terri at the front desk, Brenda and Sara (technicians). These three have been with us several years (over 40 years combined). We are also fortunate to employ several part-time veterinary assistants, most of whom have a special interest in veterinary medicine, are students at the university and some hope to attend veterinary medical school in the future. Everyone has a special interest for the care and well being of the animals in our care and are dedicated to providing the very best care to all.
Welcome new staff members, Alex, Chelsea and Madison.
