About Dr. Joi Sutton

I’m the happiest veterinarian I know. I thoroughly enjoy going to work. I believe I enjoy our profession so much because I have been involved in many aspects of medicine. I’ve been an ER/critical care vet, a house call vet, a relief vet, and an international volunteer. I am generally a happy person. Someone once told me that I “won the serotonin lottery”.  Building Tequesta Vet Clinic in 2013 is the pinnacle of my achievements.

My goal as a veterinarian has always been to be the vet I’d want my mother to encounter with one of her pets. I strive to provide superior customer service.  I’ve spent most of my life in veterinary clinics – since I was 18 years old.  I love what I do!  I study more than any vet I know.  Vet med is ever-changing and I never want to be the dummy in the room.
