Dr. Gregory Noll

Hello!

I would like to welcome you to the Noll Veterinary Hospital website. I thought I would review how I decided to begin my practice here, share with you how it has grown, and what I want to do in the future. I would like to thank my clients for entrusting us to treat their pets, whether they are the family dog, the dressage horse project, the sheep having problems delivering a lamb, or any other pet or farm animal you may have.

I grew up on a farm near Lancaster, Ohio where we raised sheep, cattle, and chickens. I am the oldest of five children. My parents still live on that 140 acre farm. I graduated form veterinary school at The Ohio State University in 1980. I entered private practice by working for another veterinarian in Richland County, Ohio for two years. I decided it was time to strike out on my own at that point, and scouted out cities I felt were promising in southwest and central Ohio. Springfield looked like the best place. I found this property, and put up my shingle announcing my new business on August 9, 1982. I have never regretted this choice.

As money was tight for a new vet, I worked out of the front room of the house for the first three years. I was the vet, answered the phone, prepped the surgeries, and cleaned up. Our start was slow, but as word spread, the practice started to grow. I added a receptionist, a vet assistant, and then knew it was time for a larger office. I discussed the project with Ron Leach, a local architect, who designed the building. It was built by Baird Builders in 90 days, and we started work in this office on November 10, 1985.

When I opened, most of my work was in farm practice, but the majority of what I now do is companion animal practice. Over the years, I have added such tools as an X-ray machine, pulse oximeter, and blood analyzers to provide answers to our patients’ problems. Since 1982, I have seen many new medications, therapies and tools to make my job easier or to give hope in a situation where previously there was none. We offer veterinary care to a mix of companion animals, and still visit farms for livestock and horses.

My staff has grown from two people in 1985, to 12, including two technicians. I have been blessed with a wonderful staff, as so many of you know, since you usually deal with them before you talk to me. My family includes my wife and my four children. My wife Lori works with me. My four children, Danielle, Daniel, Ben and Brianna also get their share of time at the hospital with various tasks. They have seen lots of things that have provided interesting stories to tell their kids. I intend to work toward keeping our patients healthy by preventing diseases before they start, by providing help in keeping your pet healthy as he or she gets older, helping my farm clients maintain healthy livestock, and to do our best to serve our clients in a timely manner with quality veterinary care.

Much has changed over the years, but our commitment has remained the same: to provide the best quality services we can for our clients and to do it at a fair price.

Thank you for visiting!

Darcy Ryan

Registered Veterinary Technician

Welcome! My name is Darcy and I am one of the veterinary technicians at Noll Veterinary Hospital. I have worked in the veterinary field for  25 years and in that time have had some amazing experiences, travelled to interesting places, met and worked with many incredible people, and have had the great privilege of caring for your furry family members .  I live in Springfield with my husband, Mike, and our 3 dogs and 5 cats.  We have two daughters who attend The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) and occasionally grace us with their presence when the fridge is full.  I enjoy spending time outdoors with my dogs and family.  We walk, hike, bike, and swim whenever the weather allows.  When the day is glooming, I enjoy a good cuddle on the couch with all the critters and TV galore.

I started here at Noll Veterinary Hospital in May of 2016. I graduated from Tolles Career & Technical Center where I was in the Pre-Vet Tech program. My home school is from a little town called West Jefferson. I have one very rotten son, a sassy daughter, 2 rambunctious dogs named Dakota and Belle, and 3 cats Callie, Taz and Luna.

Shawna

Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant

Hi, my name is Shawna. I worked for a Veterinary office when I was in high school. I have always loved animals and would rescue all of them if I could. I moved to Springfield and love my job!

Sami

Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant

Hello, my name is Sami. I’m a recent addition to the Noll Veterinary family as of August 2020. I graduated May 2020 from Wright State University where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with Pre-Veterinary focuses. In the coming years I plan to go to the Ohio State University to attend their College of Veterinary Medicine and fulfill my dream of becoming a licensed DVM. Ever since I was little, I grew up surrounded by animals of all kinds where my love and passion for helping them grew too. My grandmother lived in the country and at one point had 30+ stray cats around. I found myself at a young age helping nurse abandoned liters of kittens back to good health many times throughout my childhood due to this. My grandmother believed in having proper care for animals which is why I always loved going to the local veterinary clinic with her and being in awe as the staff would do their jobs with so much love and passion for our pets. I always knew from a young age I wanted to work in the veterinary career which is why I am honored to be a part of the Noll Veterinary family where they give me many possibilities to grow my experiences in animal care! I look forward to seeing you all and helping to provide the best care for all of your pets!

Jessica

Hi! I’m Jess. I am a veterinary assistant here at Noll Veterinary Hospital. I have been working with dogs professionally since 2007 and have managed some of Ohio’s busiest doggie daycare and boarding facilities. I also was extremely active in animal rescue and advocacy for many years, and was a founding board member for Central Ohio Pit Savers. Growing up, I rode horses and kept rabbits. I am currently in school at Clark State Community College to pursue my degree in medical imaging. I grew up in Marion, OH and have bounced around the state, but have happily landed in Dayton with my fiancé, Chris, and our zoo crew: Imogen the Border collie, Bones the Am Staff, Cheetos and Poptart the cats, and Louie the Green-cheek Conure. In my rare moments of free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family, hiking, cycling, and taking care of my 50-some houseplants, baking, performing stand-up comedy, and creating art.
