Dr. Wayne Brubaker has been working with us since May 2016, after his retirement from Winterville Animal Clinic. He enjoys working close to home in a practice that closely resembles the clinic where he began his career. With his passion for working with animals and people he thoroughly enjoys helping his clients in all aspects of pet ownership.
Dr. Brubaker graduated from UGA Vet School in 1977. After graduation, he practiced in Royston on mixed animals (cows, horses, dogs and cats) for five years. He left Royston to begin practicing on small animals in Comer and Oglethorpe county. After having children and desiring more time with them, he began a companion animal practice, Winterville Animal Clinic.
Before starting Winterville Animal Clinic, he sold Oglethorpe Animal Clinic to Dr. Ed Rowan, and Comer Veterinary Clinic to Dr. Leslie Heart. He operated Winterville Animal Clinic until 2010 and sold the practice to Dr. Don Cole, continuing to work there until last year.
He has been married to Mary Booth Brubaker for 44 years and they have two sons, Jeremy (Deanna) and Joseph (Laura), and five grandchildren. He enjoys spending time with his family and many pets at his home. He is very involved in Cornerstone Church of Athens and with Sparrows Nest, an inner-city ministry of Athens, serving on the board.
