Dr. BethAnn Gorby
I have lived in the Tri-State area practically all my life. I graduated as the Valedictorian from South Side Area High School in 1989 and attended Washington & Jefferson College for the next four years. I went on to The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with my DVM degree in 1997. My husband Steve and I have three wonderful kids ~ Tanner, Hunter and Kassie, along with three dogs, five cats, a rabbit, and fish. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and gardening.
I grew up on a farm with many animals and have always had a love for all of them. I knew when I was eight years old and got my first (and only) pet buck sheep that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I have never changed my mind and love what I do. Since graduating from veterinary school, I have worked at three different clinics in the Tri-State area. I enjoy helping the companion animals of the community and hope that as a whole, we can continue keeping our pets and furry friends healthy and happy.

Hello, my name is Je'taime Reilly. My first name actually means "I love you" in French but just I go by Temmy. I am from Oakdale, PA and graduated from West Allegheny Senior High School in 2012. I am currently in my last semester of classes at the Community College of Allegheny County for my Associates degree. My plans after graduation are to further my education and go to nursing school.

Melissa Rosohac - Practice Manager
Hello everyone! I’m the person that many of you won’t see during your visit to Animal Medical Clinic. I handle the behind the scenes aspect for Doctor Gorby as her Practice Manager. I try to alleviate the business portion of our daily activities so Doc can focus on your furry family members. While I love seeing everyone’s pets, I usually only get to see a few a day as I am going through the clinic doing inventory or assisting one of our great staff.
I’ve lived in Hancock County, WV most of my life. My husband, Gary, and I have one son, Isaac, who is attending Waynesburg University. I have had a multitude of pets throughout my life; cats, dogs, hamsters, turtles, fish, birds, hermit crabs, and horses. I currently have 4 Siamese cats Max, Pixie, Trixie, and Lynx (aka Fat Cat or Fatty).
I greatly enjoy working at the clinic! Doctor Gorby, the staff, and myself enjoy seeing all of your four-legged family members and doing our best to keep them healthy.
