Holly H. Woltz, DVM, MS — Chief of Staff
Dr. Holly Woltz (Doc Holly), our Chief of Staff, is a Washingtonian by birth but southerner by choice. She is a graduate from the University of Georgia with degrees in Education, Masters in Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Woltz became the owner of Veterinary Services of Aiken in 1987. A better decision couldn't have been made! Veterinary Services was the first veterinary hospital in Aiken and has been American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) certified for 32 years. With an emphasis on education, personal attention and compassionate care, the practice has added staff and moved into a new state-of-the-art building over the years. Her special interests in veterinary medicine are in geriatrics and dermatology. Her hobbies revolve around her family, gardening, visits to the beach and biking through the streets of Aiken.
Myron Bratton, DVM
Dr. Myron (Mick) Bratton developed an interest in veterinary medicine while growing up in Delaware. He attended the University of Delaware (think Joe Flacco and Rich Gannon if you're a football fan) and earned his veterinary degree from Cornell University. He subsequently began practicing in Rochester, New York and in 1987 purchased the Webster Veterinary Clinic. He twice served as president of the local Genesee Valley Veterinary Medical Society. His move to Aiken was motivated by the desire to be close to family, enjoy year round warmer weather, and be closer to the mountains and beaches. He is thrilled to be practicing with Dr. Woltz. Her style of practice embodies the same commitment to excellence and patient care that Dr. Bratton fostered in his own clinic.
