Every member of the Pattenden Vets team is truly passionate about the job that they do.  Our dedicated team work together every step of the way to provide you with sound advice and veterinary care that you can trust!

Dr Tori Jordan

Dr Tori’s passion for veterinary medicine began on her family farm in Northern Ireland.  In 2012, she graduated from the University of Cambridge and moved to Paddock Wood to begin her veterinary career.  From there, Dr Tori spent time in mixed and equine, specialist and general practice; both in England and not so nearby Australia.  Dr Tori’s clinical interests lie in ophthalmology and soft tissue surgery.

Dr Lara Hummel

Dr Lara’s passion for veterinary medicine came about from a childhood surrounded by a menagerie of animals.  She graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2006 and returned to her Kentish roots to pursue a job in mixed practice.  After a couple of years working in Somerset, she returned to Kent with her husband Roger.  In recent years, she has devoted her time purely to small animals.  She has strong interests in cardiology, ultrasonography and emergency medicine.

Mrs Janet Clark

From growing up and helping on the family farm, Janet left school and went to college to study as an agricultural secretary.  In a slight twist of events, she fell into managerial role for a local veterinary practice, which, with 34 years of hard work and dedication, grew into a successful business.  Janet is now looking forward to her next challenge – working the same magic on our brand new clinic!
