Kristen Bamonte, DVM
Medical Director

Kristen Bamonte

Dr. Bamonte joined Clear Creek Animal Hospital in August 2005, fresh from graduating from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She left the wonderful Land of Oz to explore the east coast and live closer to her family.

A couple of years into her new Charlotte life she joined a kickball team and met her future husband and fellow animal lover, Justin. They have 2 fabulous, rambunctious kids, Brooke and Jack, and a Cocker Spaniel diva named Mia.  Dr. Bamonte enjoys traveling, reading, walking, and, of course, spending as much time as she can with her family.

Dr. Bamonte has special interests in internal medicine, pain relief, and geriatric care....because age is not a disease!
