Meet Our Veterinarians and Staff

The veterinarians at Santa Fe Animal Hospital have more than 30 years of combined experience in providing pets with the quality, compassionate care they need at all stages of life. We currently have two veterinarians on our staff, Dr. Marc Presnell and Dr. Julia Jones Reynolds who works at our hospital three days a week.

Santa Fe Animal Hospital is operated by Dr. Presnell, who completed his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida and has been a practicing veterinarian since 1986; he returned home to Polk County in 1995. He has two dachshunds of his own and enjoys providing one-on-one attention to each pet he sees in our Lakeland office.

In addition to our experienced veterinarians, we also have a number of staff members who help make Santa Fe Animal Hospital a comfortable, first-rate practice. Our entire team, from our friendly reception staff to our dedicated veterinary technicians, strives to make your visit and your pet’s experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

We will be re-opening on Tuesday, March 1st!

Please note the updated process below:

  • One person per pet will be allowed in the building. We ask that you continue to check in by phone at (863) 665-5033 when you arrive for your pet’s appointment, then wait for a team member to come out and escort you and your pet into the building. 
  • We do request that you wear a mask when in the building.
  • Please social distance as best as possible when in the hospital. 
  • Our waiting room will be open with socially distanced seating. 
  • When in the waiting room, a staff member will discuss your pet’s history and take note of any issues you would like the doctor to examine.
  • Due to the exam rooms being small, a staff member will then escort your pet to the exam room, while you continue to wait in the waiting room. 
  • After the examination, you will be brought into the exam room to discuss the findings and treatment plan with the doctor. 
  • If you are sick, especially with flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19, we do ask that you find a friend or family member to bring your pet to their appointment. 
  • Our curbside service will no longer be a required part of our COVID-19 protocol; however, if you prefer to take advantage of this service, just let us know when you arrive.
  • In order to reduce traffic flow inside the clinic, food and medicine pick up will still remain curbside.

We know this has been a long and trying year for everyone, and we sincerely appreciate how understanding our clients have been with the necessary restrictions and changes. 

Thank you for continuing to trust us with your pet’s health!
