The Fletcher Vet Story
Dr Paul Robin was born and raised in Newcastle and graduated from The University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 1994.
He started practicing as a vet and spent time working in Hong Kong before moving back to the Hunter region in 1998. Paul joined the team as a vet at Kotara Blackbutt Vet Surgery before transitioning to The Maryland Vet just around the corner from the current premises.
Paul opened Fletcher Veterinary Practice in 2009 with a single vet nurse for support. The clinic has since grown and more staff have joined the team.
We are now known as Fletcher Vet and enjoy a reputation as one of Newcastle’s best vet practices.
