  • Dr. Greg Matthews

    I'm Dr. Greg Matthews. Originally from Pemberville, Ohio, I graduated from Eastwood High School in 1968. I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from The Ohio State University in 1975.

    After graduation, I started a mixed practice in Bowling Green, Ohio, and practiced there for 9 years. The next year was spent working at Select Embryos, Inc., in Plain City, Ohio, doing Embryo Transfer work on cattle. In 1986, I purchased Dr. Russell Miller's veterinary practice in Republic, Ohio and a year later I opened the Fremont office in the Potter Village Shopping Center. In 2009, we moved into our new facility just north of Fremont at 2180 Dickinson St.

    I very much enjoy private practice and working with both large and small animals. I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners, the International Embryo Transfer Society and the Society For Theriogenology and regularly attend continuing education meetings.

  • Dr. Julie Matthews

    Hi! I am Dr. Julie Matthews and I started working full time as a veterinarian at our clinic in July 2009. Growing up I spent many years working at the clinic assisting in the office.

    I graduated from Tiffin Calvert High School in 1998 and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from The Ohio State University in 2002. I spent a year working as an Admissions Counselor at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Soon I realized I really wanted to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine. I went back to college and earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in June of 2009.

    I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, but have a particular interest for soft tissue surgery in both small and large animals. I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association.

    I currently have a Golden Retriever named Bella and a Labrador Retriever named Beau.

  • Marianne Webb

      Hello! My name is Marianne Webb and I am thrilled to be a part of the staff at Countryside Veterinary Clinic.  Although my background is in music, I have always loved being around animals of all shapes and sizes.  I have four fur faces in my home at the moment.  Dogs Skippy and Miles and cats Angel and Blair keep me busy.  My husband calls me "Mommy Doolittle" because they follow me a round the house like a parade, and of course because I "talk to the animals".  In addition to my husband of 20 years, we also have a wonderful blended family of 6 children ranging from 37 to 17, and two beautiful granddaughters 9 and 4.  A lot of people ask me what took me from singing in bands and traveling the country to working in a veterinary clinic in Fremont.  I simply answer "It was a long and winding road and I wouldn't change a step!'
