The Team at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital

Ruth M. Gillis, DVM

Owner/ Veterinarian

Dr. Gillis earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science degree from Tuskegee University. She began practicing small animal medicine in upstate New York and moved to Winston-Salem, NC in 2001. Dr. Gillis has been in practice since 1985 and feels that veterinary medicine is the most rewarding profession. “I feel I have the best of both worlds, I am able to help our furry companions directly and in doing so, help the people that love and care for them.” She is dedicated to preventative medicine, and educating people on how to provide good quality health care. Dr. Gillis purchased Forsyth Veterinary Hospital in 2005. She employs a faithful, dedicated and compassionate staff. Dr. Gillis is a mother of two children. She adores her extended family of one dog, two cats, and tank of tropical fish. There is always an open invitation to meet Dr. Gillis and the staff at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital.

Rachel

Head Technician

Rachel has worked in the veterinary field since 2000. She ventured into human medicine for a short time but found her heart is in working with animals. She started out in general practice and has done some emergency medicine as well. She had worked at several different veterinary hospitals before finding her “home” at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital. She is a proud mother of her son, Justin ,and five fur babies- two dogs, two cats and a crazy bird named mango.

Catherine

Veterinary Technician

Catherine started working at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital as a receptionist in 2016 after moving to Winston Salem with her husband Jonathan. Before moving Catherine studied Animal Science at Tuskegee University, she found her passion for animals watching her dad do surgery and teach at Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine, so working with Dr. Gillis and Dr. Scott made home feel a little closer. In 2018 Catherine became a technician when she returned from maternity leave after having her son Archibald.
