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.
