Dr. Stacy Ward - Veterinarian
Dr. Stacy Ward is a 1999 graduate of North Carolina State University of College of Veterinary Medicine (although her undergraduate alma mater is UNC-Chapel Hill...Go Heels!).
She was a member of the Phi Zeta Veterinary Honor Society and graduated fifth in her class. She was the recipient of the Portia Milbrandt Scholarship for Veterinary Geriatrics. Along with Dr. Jeff Ward, she also completed an intensive 13-month internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville, TN. Veterinary interns are selected from the top graduates through a competitive selection process. Following completion of her internship, Dr. Ward practiced at two excellent multi-doctors small animal practices in Charlotte and Calabash, North Carolina.
Dr. Ward has been a practicing veterinarian since 1999. Dr. Ward feels that it is extremely special to be a part of the local community as a veterinarian. Getting to know people and their pets is very personally rewarding. She was honored to be named Encore Magazine's 'Best Veterinarian' in 2007 and was personally recognized again by a Star News poll in 2018.
Dr. Ward's special interests are internal medicine (especially endocrine disease), oncology, geriatrics, radiology, cardiology, and the management of long-term heart patients. Dr. Ward is mother to humans, dogs, and horses (thankfully not dragons, though she wouldn't totally rule it out).
