Greystone Veterinary Associates was incorporated in 1979 and was originally located on Greystone Boulevard. The Seven Oaks name was chosen when the facility was moved, to create an easily recognizable identity for the hospital which was constructed in The Seven Oaks Community on Saint Andrews Road. Since that move in 1981, the surrounding area has changed from an area with just a few retail locations and eateries to a crowded magnet for retail businesses, drawing patrons from all over the state.
After completing a preceptorship at Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, Florida, in 1970, Dr. John B. Marlow, Jr. and his family moved to South Carolina. After six and one-half years in a partnership with another veterinarian, Greystone Veterinary Associates was founded and Seven Oaks became a practice where other veterinarians could refer their difficult cases. It also became a respected training ground for some of the most outstanding veterinarians and ancillary personnel in South Carolina.
From the inception of our practice, we have seen ourselves as a dedicated group of professionals working together to do an excellent job for our clients, patients, and the profession. We attribute our success to our fine staff and the services we offer.
Our philosophy is best exemplified by our attitude towards teamwork and our emphasis on communication. We believe in the delivery of up-to-date services to our patients in the most compassionate and humane manner that we can carry out as well as being caring and sensitive with our clients.
Throughout the years, Seven Oaks Animal Hospital has continued its tradition of providing the best veterinary care possible. In 1984 Dr. Marlow was accepted into the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners and in 1985 Seven Oaks Animal Hospital was awarded membership in the American Animal Hospital Association.
To be an accredited AAHA hospital member, our hospital must meet the Association's high standards for quality veterinary care.
