Swift Creek Animal Hospital - Raleigh, NC - Our Doctors

Swift Creek Animal Hospital - Our veterinarian Warren E Gintis, DVM

Warren E Gintis, DVM:

I was born and raised in Kinston, NC where I started working at Northside Animal Hospital in high school. A life long Tarheel fan, I got my undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and a MS degree in physiology from that other school in Raleigh. I briefly left the great state of North Carolina to attend veterinary school at Tuskeegee University in Alabama. Returning to the Research Triangle, I began my career working for and learning from Dr. Bobby Sherwood at Sherwood Animal Hospital in Durham.

In 1986, after approaching several bankers, I finally convinced one that Penny Road was not too far from Raleigh to support an animal hospital and opened Swift Creek. In 1997, I opened Lake Pine Animal Hospital in Apex. Both locations have flourished and I am extremely proud of and grateful for the dedicated staff of both hospitals.

I am one of the few NC natives that live in Cary with my wife, Marsha, and my two legged children, Haley and Drew. My four legged children include two Labrador retrievers, Skittles and Wafer (the only members of the family that listen to me), and two lazy cats with politically incorrect names that will not be mentioned here.

Outside of veterinary medicine, I like to read, play golf, and follow the Tarheels and the Hurricanes. In 2005, I became one of the founders of Patriot State Bank in Fuquay-Varina. I guess being turned down by all those bankers had a lasting impression!

Dr. Smith

After a career in Information Technology that took him to Colorado, he followed his passion and moved to Missouri to attend Veterinary School. He built, operated, and sold a veterinary hospital in Asheville before moving to Raleigh. He lives near Lake Johnson with his wife Amy, their mini Brady Bunch family (all teenagers); Isabella, Ashley, Ashton, and Audrey, and a “Genetic Soup SPCA Special” dog named Penny.
