Central Veterinary to fill Choto need

A house near Weigel’s next to Markets at Choto would be the third location for Central Veterinary Hospital this summer.
The Choto business community is growing with a new veterinary hospital, Central Veterinary Hospital, which has a target date of this summer to open at 12330 Northshore Drive.

This will be the hospital’s third location, according to Kelly Self, CVH office manager.

“We saw the need in the Choto area for a veterinary office due to how quickly the area is growing,” Self said. “We also have current clients that are in that area

that would benefit from a closer location.

“We have eight doctors and extended hours at our downtown location (from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.),” she added.

Office hours at the Northshore location will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

Central Veterinary Hospital, owned by Dr. William “Bill” Martin, Dr. Wesley Keele and Dr. Dustin “Dusty” Patterson, has been in business since 1935, first opening at 1212 W. Clinch Ave. in Knoxville. It opened another location at 3314 Mill Road, also in Knoxville.

Currently, Self said the veterinarians planning to work out of the Northshore clinic are Drs. Tyler Davis, who has been with CVH since April 2019, and Amanda Brzozowski, who has been with the clinic since June 2019 — but the veterinarians could change, Self added.

“We will provide annual routine wellness and preventative care, sick or injury appointments, lab work, X-ray and ultrasound, surgery, animal dentistry and a pharmacy,” she said.

The hospital’s downtown location is available for more

information or to schedule appointments “as we get closer to the opening date,” Self said. “We also have a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/cvhchoto/ and we will be posting updates on there.”
