Dr. Barnes, DVM
Dr. Barnes, DVM, graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. Fortunately for us she is a real hometown girl and decided to stay in the Memphis area. Dr. Barnes joined McGehee Clinic for Animals in January of 2008 and has been keeping pets happy and healthy ever since. Her love of animals is expressed daily through her attention to detail during each pet exam. Dr. Barnes has special interest in general internal medicine, wellness care for patients of all ages, and surgery. When she is not at work “Missy” (as she is affectionately known) loves gardening, reading and being with her family.
Dr. Gordon, DVM
Another local Memphian, Dr. Gordon joined us in June of 2018. Dr. Gordon attended St. Mary’s Episcopal School, graduating in ‘10 (Go Turkeys!) and then received a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and Molecular Biology from Auburn University in ’14. Last but not least, Dr. Gordon received her DVM from UTCVM in ’18. Her interests include soft tissue surgery and internal medicine, as well as getting to know our clients and patients, and we love the fun spirit and energy she brings to work with her every day. At home, Dr. Gordon has a golden retriever mix named Lexie and a tortoise shell cat named Coco. Dr. Gordon spends her free time reading, watching movies, baking, and hiking (hopefully with no more broken wrists!).
Dr. Hall, DVM
Dr. Hall joined our team in December of 2018. A big North Caroline State fan, Dr. Hall attended NCSU for undergrad, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science in 2000, and obtaining her DVM from NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine in ’04. After graduating from vet school, Dr. Hall moved to the Florida Keys, where she practiced veterinary medicine for fourteen years, and although she likes Memphis, she says she misses the constant sunshine of Florida. Internal medicine and oncology are a couple of her interests. Dr. Hall believes in practicing veterinary medicine in the most fear free environment possible, and she is great with working with both cats and dogs, as well as with birds and exotics on a case-by-case basis. In her free time, she enjoys reading, doing CrossFit, spending time outdoors, and riding horses.
Dr. Hall has one sweet dog named Jack Jack that spends his days snacking on carrots and other treats he gets the staff to feed him. He stays in the office under her desk and greets everyone who comes in. She also has a gorgeous kitty named Jackie Chan and a tortoise.
Dr. Hall’s best advice to animal owners is that preventative medicine is the best medicine!
