Sugar Land Veterinary Specialists is looking to add a Full-Time Veterinary Neurologist to our team and rapidly growing hospital!


What we are looking for:

  • An enthusiastic neurologist who wants to work in a friendly, collaborative environment. 
  • We would want someone who will be interested in working as part of a team.  As a two-doctor service, each team member would need to be comfortable working as partners so that our patients can have seamless care when either DVM is in the building. 
  • Board certified or board eligible
  • A sense of humor is a must 


About SLVS:

  • SLVS is a multi-specialty hospital in the suburbs of Houston, Texas. We have Neurology, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Critical Care, Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and Emergency services.
  • SLVS is a great place to work. The environment is very warm and collaborative.
  • Specialists go out of their way to support each other so we can all practice to the best of our abilities and for the best care of our patients.
  • The hospital is large enough to allow high end practice, but small enough to be personal.
  • The Neurology Service is staffed with 5 full time technicians who have been with SLVS for 2 to 8 years. They are a terrific team who get along well and take on a great deal of responsibility to allow DVMs to focus on their work. We will add further technician staff to support another Neurologist well. We have a beautiful, new Phillips Achieva 1.5T MRI. Our Diagnostic Imaging team is well-staffed and runs gorgeous and efficient scans.
  • Houston is the most diverse large city in the U.S. The food scene is outstanding! Sugar Land is a beautiful suburb that is populated with highly educated and well-off folks who like to take excellent care of their pets. SLVS also draws clients from the entire greater Houston area.
  • Compensation and benefits are generous and competitive. A Neurologist joining the service would have the option of a 3- or 4-day work week.


Here is the list of our Neuro Team Toys:

  • Philips Achieva 1.5T MRI
  • GE Light speed 16-slice CT
  • Nicolet electrodiagnostics machine
  • C-arm in surgery suite
