About Russell Ridge Animal Hospital

GVA opened its doors in 2003 with Russell Ridge Animal Hospital, realizing Dr. Brad Miller and Dr. Michael Wanchick's dream to provide comprehensive medical and surgical care for small animal patients. In 2005 the doctors opened Hamilton Ridge Animal Hospital in Buford, and then in 2007, Apalachee Ridge Animal Hospital was opened in Dacula. Lastly, Camden Village Animal Hospital was opened in 2013 to serve the Johns Creek/Duluth/Alpharetta areas.

As a member of the American Animal Hospital Association since 2009, GVA adheres to rigid requirements for quality medical care and participates in comprehensive hospital inspections. We are proud to be a member of the organization and to have accredited all four of our practices.

Our Clients say...

This vet is absolutely awesome. My son and his wife has used them for years with his ferrets and dogs. My friend was in town for 3 weeks with her dog and it got sick. They did surgery and follow-up even though she was back in Austin, TX. My little dog scratched his eye and they were able to work him in the same day. I feel like they genuinely love the pets and go above and beyond with them. Highly recommend.

Joy Liebengood

I brought my very sick cat to them for an emergency which resulted in surgery and they were very compassionate to me and my family and took great care of my sweet fur baby. My sweet boy is still in their care holding on to his sweet little life but Dr. Miller and Dr. Rolf are taking the best care of him. I have no doubt they are doing the best they can in this situation.

Amanda Horsley

Shara Ryan

We love Russell Ridge Animal Hospital! They have been a great vet for us for over 9 years and I completely trust all of my pets' care with them. Dr. Miller is the best.

Lori Mruk

In all of my years of owning pets and needing veterinary care, Russell Ridge is by far the best care we have ever received, specifically from Dr Miller. To date, Dr Miller has performed a canine ACL surgery (TPLO) for one pup, a tumor removal for another, and multiple dental extractions for a senior kitty. These procdures, although routine for the veterinary professional, is often very scary for the owner. Dr Miller has always gone above and beyond to accommodate and ease our concerns, every single time. I have always felt he treated my beloved furr-babies as if they were his very own, which is more comforting than words can describe. Regardless of the procedure, I feel my babies are in the most competent and skilled of hands and in the presence of the most caring of hearts. For all of my animals major procedures, we will always take them to Russell Ridge, particular to Dr Miller. You get what you pay for (and more) with this place.
