Our Practice

In August of 1987 Dr. Gerald Mitchum and his wife Frances started Yadkin Park Animal Hospital & Dental Clinic in Southern Pines, NC.  In the beginning Frances acted as both receptionist and veterinary technician. As the business grew and a broader clientele was established staff members were added.  Dr. Daniel Nordland, the current practice owner, came on board in 1992. In the summer of 1995 Dr. Mitchum and Frances felt called to missionary work with Christian Veterinary Mission (www.cvmusa.org) and left for Mongolia where they still reside today. That same summer Dr. Jenny Beavers (now Powers) joined the staff as an Associate Veterinarian replacing Dr. Mitchum. In 2011 Dr. Tony Ioppolo joined Yadkin Park Animal Hospital as the third Veterinarian in the practice. 

In January of 2015 we proudly moved into our new hospital located at 305 Commerce Avenue in Southern Pines, NC. Our new hospital is located around the corner from our previous practice.  Our new veterinary hospital was greatly needed as we grew in order to better treat our loved patients and serve our wonderful community. 

Long time staff members include office manager Sandi Marts (1989), receptionists Lou Smith (1993) and Charlene Sazama (2003), technicians Bobbie Knight (1998), Pam Scott (2005), Kathy Daymude (2007), and Sophia Whitley (2007). To learn more about our staff click here.
