Our Success Stories
We're just as passionate about helping people succeed as we are helping animals and their families. To maintain the level of excellence provided at the Coyne hospitals, we need to educate, train, and support our future veterinarians and staff members. We are extremely proud of the individuals who have invested so much time and energy into working with us and growing as veterinary professionals. See what some of our former students have to say about their experiences with Coyne and why our career building programs are so valuable.
"I signed with Coyne Veterinary Services right out of vet school because I saw opportunity that no other group of hospitals could match. Coming out of vet school, I wanted as much experience as possible with both medicine and surgery. This company provided me with that, thus accelerating my career in ways I didn't even know was possible.
Mentorship within the company is top notch, and I relied on it heavily early in my career. It did not take long for me to reach a level of comfort practicing medicine on a day-to-day basis, which is a tall task for a new graduate. I can say without hesitation: I would not be the veterinarian I am today without the guidance and support from Dr. Coyne and his associates. For this reason, I enjoy mentoring veterinarians; because I remember how essential it was to my development as a veterinarian."

"I joined the Coyne family after practicing for a few years. I was looking for a team that provided good work life balance but has also continued to challenge me as a growing doctor. Working for Coyne Veterinary Center has satisfied these needs personally as well as professionally. Professionally, I have had opportunities for continuing education in subjects that interest me and make me a better doctor. Working in a non-appointment based hospital I am able to see a variety of cases, manage hospitalized patients and perform different surgeries, which I love. It has been a great experience working for Coyne as they foster me to become a better doctor and provide great care to my patients."

Medical Director at Coyne Veterinary Center in St. John, Indiana
"My journey with Coyne Veterinary Services started back in high school when I was hired as a kennel attendant. From there, under the tutelage of Dr. Coyne, I grew to develop a passion for veterinary medicine. Dr. Coyne and our team at our Orland Park location provided me with mentorship and opportunity as a young, aspiring veterinarian.
What has kept me here is the continued encouragement from Dr. Coyne to better myself as a veterinarian. He encourages doctors to truly explore their area of interest and become proficient at it. Continuing education opportunities are plentiful. This autonomy creates an enthusiasm among the entire team that is contagious and makes us all strive to be better doctors.
I am truly grateful for over a decade of experience and opportunities with Dr. Coyne and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for Coyne Vet! "

"Working for Coyne Veterinary Services was my first job following graduation from veterinary school. I saw an opportunity to learn and gain a vast amount of experience quickly, while offering high quality medicine and patient care. The non-appointment based model and multi-doctor practices provided me with a wide range of both medicine and surgery case exposure. Dr. Coyne and Dr. Bushias, along with their associates, offer many years of experience and guidance that aided in the transition from vet school to clinical practice. I have thoroughly enjoyed the years I have spent working with Coyne Veterinary Services and am thankful for the opportunities they have provided me."
