Dr. Chris Sims
Dr. Chris Sims grew up on a farm in Flemingsburg, Kentucky. He has always loved animals, and taking care of them was a daily routine on the farm. He decided at a young age that veterinary medicine would be a good career choice, so he planned his college education to accomplish his goal.
Chris attended the University of Kentucky as a pre-vet animal science student. He then went on to Auburn University, College of Veterinary Medicine and received the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1992.
After graduating, Dr. Sims returned to his rural hometown in Kentucky and focused his practice on dairy and beef cattle, and horses. His patients also included occasional sheep, goats, pigs, buffalo, ostriches or llamas, so he got to experience treating a wide range of farm animals!
In 2005, Dr. Sims moved to Florida to work with the USDA. Missing his work with animals, he joined a small animal practice the following year. He purchased the Winter Springs Veterinary Clinic from Dr. Jerry Eans in 2011.
Chris and his wife, Carla, have been married since 1989. They have two beautiful daughters, Olivia and Leah. Completing their family is Teddy, a sweet little toy poodle.
In his spare time, Chris enjoys traveling and spending time with his family.
