Faith and Family
Dr. Greene’s faith and family were his number one priority. I believe this is what made him such a great veterinarian. He understood where his gifts and talents originated and that he was just an instrument in hands of his Maker. He was a proud husband and father and never missed an opportunity to tell you about his beloved Leah (daughter) and Parker (son). His love and commitment to his family and his God were inspiring.
I came to work for Dr. Greene in 1999, 6 months before he retired. Although our time together was short, I was shaped and marked by his legacy of kindness, compassion, generosity, excellence and integrity. We had many conversations in our office before he retired. As he became aware that his days of practice were coming to a close, he asked that I continue the legacy he began in the late 60s. Little did I know that my “yes” at that time would result in 20 years of practice at Southern Crossing Animal Hospital and eventual ownership.
When I purchased Greene Animal Hospital in March 2019 and began considering a rebrand of the hospital, now Southern Crossing Animal Hospital, I reflected on my time with Dr. Greene and all the time and talent he poured into this hospital. This legacy page is a dedication to the man that impacted veterinary medicine in a powerful way and cared for each of his patients, one kind moment at a time. Thank you, Dr. Greene for your legacy. My prayer is that I have lived up to your hope for this hospital and that we continue to build upon what you started.
