Our Doctors

Dr. Zachary Joseph, Medical Director

Dr. Zack joined the SLVC team in the fall of 2013. He attained his undergraduate degree in Zoology at Washington State University. He then attained his DVM degree at University of Wisconsin Madison in 2013. He currently lives with wife, Cassy and Golden Retriever “Tucker” and is holding out for his dream pair of Golden Retrievers.

In his spare time he enjoys rock climbing, listening to and performing all genres of music.

Dr. Thomas Oelfke, DVM

Dr. Tom Oelfke joined the SLVC team immediately following his graduation. He attained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from Gustavus Adolphus College and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Iowa State University in 2018.

Dr. Tom always knew that becoming a veterinarian was for him as he loves all animals and has a fascination with the complexity of veterinary medicine.  His easy going personality, great sense of humor and ready smile are a natural fit in this field.  When Dr. Tom isn’t treating his furry patients he finds spare time to enjoy reading, Rock Paper Scissors challenges, camping, hiking in the great outdoors, and playing the trombone.  At home Dr. Tom relaxes with wife Serena and fur kid 5 year old Chico.
