Dr. Evan Klein |  DVM/PARTNER

Dr. Klein has been practicing in small animal medicine and surgery for the past 10 years.  He realized his dream of becoming a veterinarian while he was working to complete his degree in marine biology in Santa Cruz, CA.  For three of his years in school he volunteered his time and love at an animal shelter.  During this time he realized his complete love of animals and that his true passion lied in helping those who could not speak for themselves.

After this dream was realized the real work began.  Dr. Klein attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in Saint Kitts.  His clinical year was completed at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.  His drive for further knowledge led him to apply for an additional internship and extend his years of study. Once accepted he was an intern with the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine Ambulatory Department and Champaign County Small Animal Shelter.

During this past year Dr. Evan Klein has become an owner at Veterinary Care Center. From wellness preventive care visits to more advanced medicine and surgery, his main focus is treating your pet as part of the family. Dr. Klein is proud to be certified in a program called Fear Free, a program designed to make visits to the hospital as stress free as possible.

In his free time, Dr. Klein loves going mountain biking, hiking, and spending time with his wife and family.

Dr. Laura Joback | DVM

Hi! I am Dr. Laura Joback. I have been a part of the Veterinary Care Center team since 2001. I attended the University of Missouri-Columbia for undergraduate studies in biochemistry and then graduated from the Veterinary Teaching Hospital in 1994. Because I am a St. Louis native, I WILL tell you where I “went to high school”… Westminster Christian Academy, graduating in 1987.

Finding my niche in a private practice where I can exclusively focus on the highest quality of care has allowed me to feed my passion for this field. Many of my patients have been with me from their initial 6 week visit to the moment they enter their twilight years and require geriatric care. My utmost goal is to focus on the Wellness needs of our patients in addition to when they are sick or in need of vaccinations. Communication is vital with my clients and I thrive on that connection. That interface, between you as the owner and me as your pets’ medical caregiver, aids me in giving your pet the highest quality medical care possible.

When I’m not saving lives and stamping out disease and pestilence in the Greater Chesterfield-land area I am spending quality time with my husband, who I am VERY thankful to have alongside me. Together we have 2 sons. Our house is also occupied by an array of “non-human” residents. We currently have one dog, a Chocolate Goldendoodle named Malachi, two parakeets, named “Japheth” and “Zilpah” in addition to a variety of fish named after superheroes, StarWars characters or movie stars.
