However Dr. Waltman missed Small Animal practice. So from 2010 to 2017 she became a Relief Veterinarian for Lighthouse Veterinary Personnel Services. In that organization, she worked and travelled extensively providing Routine, Emergency and Surgical Care at multiple Veterinary Practices in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio.
Through her Relief Veterinary work she met Dr. Paul Eismann. And, in 2010 she began occasionally seeing patients and performing Surgeries at Deer Creek Animal Hospital. She eventually began working full time at Deer Creek following Dr. Eismann’s unexpected passing in May 2017. She then purchased the Practice in the fall of 2017.
After almost 26 years of practicing Veterinary Medicine, she enjoys helping people and their pets through the diagnosis of challenging cases and by providing routine, emergency, surgical, exotic and companion animal care. Dr. Waltman also enjoys family time, volunteering at her church, traveling, gardening, playing golf, swimming, and spending time outdoors.
