We have some very exciting news to share with you all! Many of you know and have had to be a part of our extremely busy and over packed afternoon schedule. We have so appreciated your patience and understanding! 

Dr Chapman has spent much time praying over the past year that God would bring the perfect associate along to join our practice. One that would desire to build a life here and to become a part of our clinic family and our community. We are pleased to say that God has answered that prayer in Dr Amber Conway!

Dr Conway graduated from my Alma Mater, Washington State University, this year. She was raised in western Washington on a sheep and goat farm and she knows how to work and is looking forward to being very busy! Her arrival will allow us to better serve you, our clients and your beloved animals as you all are the most important part of our practice!

Dr Conway is super personable, smart, kind and funny and I know that you will all love her. We would love for you all to welcome her to the Gila Valley and to give her a smile and a warm welcome when you come into the clinic! You guys are all the best and I know she will love you as We do!

Welcome to Desert Cross Veterinary Hospital and the Gila Valley Dr Conway!
