  • Dr. Roxanne K. Taylor, DVM

    Animals have been important to Dr. Taylor her entire life. Her passion for healing started when she was kindergarten age, when kids in her Newport, NC neighborhood would bring injured wildlife to her to “fix”.

    Through high school she immersed herself in animal care volunteering then working at a local Veterinary clinic, ultimately earning a Bachelor of Science degree from ECU and obtaining her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989.

    Dr. Taylor opened Mitchell Village Animal Hospital with Dr. David Hall in 1989, followed by Bridges Professional Park Veterinary Hospital in 1997. Two successes attributed to her unwavering commitment to providing compassionate pet medicine and a reputation for the same.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    Dr. Marci and the staff at Bridges have taken amazing care of my boys (who are not easy to work with I might add). They treat us like royalty and I wouldn’t trust my babies with anyone else. They are amazing, always so sweet, caring, and understanding. I just can’t thank them enough for keeping my sweet babies happy and healthy.

    RONNIE E.

    truly kind and caring doctor and staff. they honestly love animals and and put their patients above everything. I had to lay my dog down, it was a horrible time, and the doctor cared enough to make sure i got her paw print, some of her hair, and her ashes. Then i got a card in the mail from the vet herself that was heartfelt, they are not in it for the money, but for their love of animals.

    GERRI R.

    I’ve been taking my birds and dogs to Dr. Taylor and her staff for a very long time – one of my cockatiels is 22 years old (they're only supposed to reach 12!) In healthy times, sickness and emergencies, the folks at Bridges have been there for me with compassion and excellent care. They are such a part of the community and are always active in animal rescue events, rabies clinics, and any opportunity to support animal welfare. These folks care like family.

    RITA E.

    I have a very high regard for Dr. Taylor and her staff. They take great care of my pets, and during a recent emergency, I was really impressed by Dr. Taylor’s tenacious, detail-oriented diagnostics and resulting treatment recommendations. Bridges is also the vet for Siamese Cat Rescue efforts in this area. I love the staff. They are so willing to work with us and they really support our efforts in caring for these amazing creatures and helping find them safe and loving homes.

    KATHY M. - SIAMESE CAT RESCUE

    Dr. Roxanne Taylor is a great, caring vet. I breed, raise and show champion Doberman Pinschers and Dr. Taylor has been my vet for 18 years. She is beyond caring; I can site thousands of incidents. She is very thorough; her motto is ‘let’s find out, let’s be sure.’ Her staff, oh my gosh, they know who you are when you call, are so personable and do everything to make the animals feel at home. They are accessible, honest and truly love what they do. I couldn’t imagine finding better vete

    SKIP S. – CHAMPION DOBERMAN PINSCHER BREEDER

    Oh I love Roxanne! The best way I can describe my experience with her is total trust. She is honest, deeply compassionate and not afraid to refer you to a specialist when it’s in the best interest of the animal. She snatched one of my Yorkies from the grave twice within his first two years of life! And when my sister and I lost our Poodles, she was so comforting. Our dogs just wag their tails like crazy when they see her; that’s a testimonial in itself!

    THEDA “FAY” S.

    I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Taylor and her practice. They go to extraordinary lengths to help animals . . . and their people! Before I moved here from New Jersey, I brought my dog to Dr. Taylor whenever I visited my daughter. It was a long way to travel to see the vet, but she helped me bring an abused very scared animal to health. She is very upfront and helps me make good decisions for my pets with complete information. I’m very pleased with the service I’ve gotten at Bridges Animal

    DOROTHY C.

    Dr. Taylor has been treating our dogs for more than 20 years. We breed show dogs and therapy dogs and are very particular. The folks at Bridges are gentle, kind and have never let us down. We have complete confidence in them and wouldn’t go anyplace else. We are really lucky to get to work with them.
