Patrick Gries, Medical Director


Dr. Gries went to high school in suburban Maryland and then went to Virginia Tech for undergrad where he received his BS in Biology in 1989. From 1990-1994 he attended the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. Once he graduated he accepted a job at Amherst Veterinary Hospital (now VCA Amherst Animal Hospital) and will celebrate 26 years here on July 1st, 2020. 

He especially loves to perform surgical procedures and when asked what his favorite procedure is he will respond with "any surgery I can do."

He loves the country life style and being outdoors when not at work. He also enjoys spending time with his wife of 29 years and 3 children, ages 23, 20, and 14 years old.
