Drs. Tom and Wendy Frankmann built the Animal Clinic of Chardon (ACOC) around a strong belief in personalized and attentive patient care and client service. After purchasing the practice from Dr. Ron Swartz in September of 2001, many changes were made to update the practice thereby improving patient care and client service. This included creating a mission statement and strong core values, adding practice management software, expanding and educating the team to include credentialed vet nurses and customer service representatives, and developing medical standards of care that the entire team follows. In 2008, Dr. Jessica DeMarco joined the practice as a full time associate DVM. Soon afterward, it became increasingly challenging to practice modern medicine and grow in a small, aging medical facility…..
Wendy and Tom drew upon many professionals in the veterinary field to create a state of the art medical facility to meet the needs of clients and pets as well as offer an even wider array of services to the community....These dreams became a reality when the new ACOC facility opened its doors on August 13, 2012. Since this time, our team has grown in size, we’ve added services (including boarding), created and developed a strong leadership team, and even re-visited our core values and standards of care. Dr. Carolyn Askew also joined the practice in June 2016 as our 2nd associate DVM. Though we continue to grow, our core focus remains the same: to make a difference in the lives of pets and the people who love them. At the Animal Clinic of Chardon, we take the time to know you and your beloved pet. We invite you to come see for yourself!
