Dr. Sean Allers, Medical Director, BVetMed MRCVS

Originally from upstate New York, Dr. Allers moved to the United Kingdom in 2011 to see the world and attend the Royal Veterinary College of London. Despite all plans to move back to the U.S. upon graduation in 2015, he met his wonderful wife while in vet school and moved to Manchester, UK for the next five years. While there he worked at a small general practice for one year before taking on a Medical Director role at a three-vet practice. In 2020 Dr. Allers and his wife decided it was time to move back to the US and set some roots in Charlotte, NC where he joined the Mint Hill Animal Hospital Team as Medical Director.

When Dr. Allers and Dr. Allers aren’t at work or discussing their interesting cases over dinner, they enjoy spending time hiking, boating or generally being outdoors. While they don’t currently have any pets they are on the lookout for a critter in need of a new home.
