We strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
Jamie Driscoll, DVM
Dr. Driscoll developed her love of animals at an early age growing up on a dairy farm in Connecticut. This early exposure to all types of animals led to an interest in equestrian sports, a lifelong love of riding, and close relationships with all creatures great and small.
She received her BA from Boston University and her Doctorate from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation she practiced in Upstate New York, eventually returning to Massachusetts, first at the Angell Memorial Hospital on Nantucket Island, then at the Eastham Veterinary Hospital.
Her interests are small animal internal medicine, dentistry and general surgery. She has taken many continuing education courses some of which include dentistry, ultrasound, wound healing and emergency medicine.
Her professional memberships and awards include American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), Member of Phi Zeta (The honor Society of Veterinary Medicine), Past President of the Central New York Veterinary Society and Horace K. White Scholar Cornell University. Recently she served as the President of the Cape Cod Veterinary Medical Association.
Kelly Preston, DVM
Dr. Kelly Preston grew up in a small town in Massachusetts. She graduated from Williams College with a degree in Biology in 1996, then from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 (and has the student loans to prove it!).
Kelly considers herself an “old school” general practitioner. She loves meeting pets as puppies or kittens and helping to care for them throughout their lives. The most rewarding part of her job is knowing that by treating and caring for the pets, she is doing the same with their owners.
Outside of work, Kelly is working on becoming a farmer. After attending Bee School through the Barnstable county Beekeeper’s Association last winter, she built and manages 2 honeybee hives in her yard. She also now owns Buff Orpington chickens and is enjoying farm fresh eggs in the addition to the honey from the bees. Her vegetable garden thrived this past summer as well. She also loves to take her boat out during the summer. Kelly enjoys hanging out with her 2 Puerto Rican mutts, and is constantly greatly entertained by her growing menagerie of small parrots that have the run of the house when she is home. Luckily for her, her dogs love the parrots and chickens (or at least ignores them).
She belongs to the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Colleen Barrett, VMD
Dr. Colleen Barrett is a 2018 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. In 2019, she completed an additional year of concentrated, experiential learning as a rotating intern at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine where she focused on emergency/critical care, internal medicine, and surgery. In 2020, she then completed an avian/exotic animal medicine and surgery specialty internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital – Tinton Falls, NJ.
Dr. Barrett is now thrilled to join Lower Cape Veterinary Services as an associate veterinarian. She takes pride in being a part of your pet’s healthcare team and enjoys making both your and your pet’s lives better. Among many other focusses, Dr. Barrett emphasizes low stress visits, early prevention, personalized medicine, and quality of life/pain management. Dr. Barrett is happy to see all creatures great and small – dogs, cats, small mammals, birds/poultry, reptiles, amphibians, fish, goats, pigs, and more! Feel free to ask about house-calls.
As a life-long visitor, Dr. Barret is now grateful to call Cape Cod home. She lives on the Outer Cape with a tank of tropical fish and her cat, Roy.
