Ronald H. Tolbert, BS, MS, DVM

Dr. Ronald H. Tolbert is the owner of, and has been, the sole Practitioner at Red Oak Animal Hospital, LLC, located in College Park, Georgia for the past twenty three years. He runs a predominately small animal practice that serves most of South Fulton County Georgia.

His interest in Veterinary Medicine began in 1969 when his father helped him secure employment with Charles E. Bild Animal Hospital, a prominent Miami Veterinarian who mentored him for several years. After High School he attended Tuskegee University where he earned the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Animal Science, and Masters of Science in Parasitology in 1977 and 1979 respectively. He then received his Doctors of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia in 1983. He received additional training while interning at the Florida Medical Entomological center in Vero Beach, Florida, the University of Florida in Large Animal Medicine and Surgery, and as a wildlife technician for the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study (SCWDS) at the University of Georgia.

After two years as an Associate and Relief Veterinarian, he started a house-call practice servicing Large and Small Animals. In 1988 he opened Red Oak Animal Hospital, LLC with a client base of 300 clients. Today in his newly renovated building he has over 7000 patients who he treats with great care.
