Dr. Jones is a co-founder of the dvmSuccess Vet Group. He has been instrumental in developing technology that helps private veterinary owners automate their practices.

Transparency of the selling process as well as educating practice owners about the process, allows hospital owners to maximize their profits in the transaction.
