Our Mission


The primary focus of Mountain Valley Veterinary Hospital is to provide excellent medical services to every patient who visits our clinic in a manner that balances the needs of the pet with the wishes of the pet owner.

Along with the practice of quality medicine, our staff places special emphasis on client communication--assuring that the pet owner understands the needs of their best friend.  Our hope is that after experiencing our services, clients will elect to be a permanent member of our hospital family.

Our Practice Theory


The practice of veterinary medicine is challenging and dynamic.  As in all fields of medical care, new discoveries and treatments will continue to be ongoing.  With so many tools and so much information available, reaching a diagnosis and planning a treatment option should be more straightforward than they have ever been in the past.

Conversely, all of this technology comes at significant cost.  What technology has made more possible, cost oftentimes makes less practical.  One has only to look at human medical care to see how effectively high costs can derail quality care.  We strive daily to keep the cost of caring for our client’s pets within reach of pet owners.

In our full service hospital, combining good business decisions with good diagnostic skills has allowed us to keep costs in reasonable control.  Our promise to our clients is to continue to work diligently to keep the value in veterinary medical care.

What's Unique About Mountain Valley Veterinary Hospital


Dr. McCorkle and family have been operating Mountain Valley Veterinary Hospital for thirty years.  The most unique thing about our hospital is that it has always been a one doctor practice staffed almost entirely by family.  The only employee that is not family is Lisa, our head technician, and she has been at the practice for sixteen years--she certainly seems like family.

This continuity creates a practice environment where we are all on the same page.  Every member of the team is familiar with our clients and their pets--both past and present.  When our clients present a pet for ongoing care, they are guaranteed to interact with the same doctor and team that have provided all previous treatment.

Without question, this is very unique in today’s veterinary market.
