In 1967 he received his Veterinary Medical Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Soon after, Doc Hoffman spent two years in the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps where he was stationed at Fort Jackson, South Carolina and then in Saigon and Phu Loi, Vietnam. Doc Hoffman opened Ludwigs Corner Veterinary Hospital in the basement of his first home here in Chester Springs in 1972. Doc Hoffman is an extraordinary surgeon. Now grandparents of three boys, Doc and his wife Anne live in Chester Springs with their two cats, Babs and Maddie, two turtles, and their African gray parrot named Poco. Though he is semi-retired at this time, after a long career of helping animals, Doc still sees appointments one day a week at each of our two hospitals, and does surgery one day a week at Ludwigs Corner.

Jamie L. Gardner, DVM

"I graduated and received my veterinary degree from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University in 2003.  I grew up in Malvern, Pennsylvania and completed my undergraduate degree at Purdue University.  Upon graduation from veterinary school, I returned to the area I was raised and became an associate veterinarian for Ludwigs Corner Veterinary Hospital.  In 2009, I became a partner in the practice that I had been a happy and dedicated member since graduation.  I spend most of my time at our other hospital Coventry Animal Hospital since its establishment in 2006.  I enjoy working as a team member in a friendly and supportive environment, where I have the opportunity to develop long term relationships with clients and care for their animals.  

When I am not at the animal hospital, I am kept busy with my two children, husband, and all of our activities.   Our dog Jackson and our two cats Porter and Pierce complete our family.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, exercising, cooking, and traveling (especially to the beach or any place warm).  My professional interests include dermatology, internal medicine, and dentistry amongst others.  I truly enjoy helping my patients enjoy the best quality of life with all of the available surgical, medical, and wellness recommendations.  I am passionate about preventative care and feel the more pro-active we are with our pet family members, the happier and healthier they will be."

I graduated From Brandeis University in Massachusetts in 1988. In 1994, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. During my senior year at Penn I won the Hills Award for Dietary Management of Diseases in Companion Animals.

My professional interests include wellness care, general and orthopedic surgery, dietary and internal medicine. I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Animal Hospital Association.

I take pride in the excellent care and service Ludwigs and Coventry provide to our Chester County friends and their pets. It is my hope that our clients feel this pride and compassion every time they walk through our doors.

When not busy at Ludwigs Corner Veterinary Hospital or Coventry Animal Hospital I enjoy spending time with wife and two sons. We enjoy going to the theater, traveling and eating out at fun and different restaurants.
