Meet Our Veterinarians

  • Dr. Tim Holloway

    “I am a 2007 graduate of University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to Veterinary School, I received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Florida with a Dual Major, Animal Sciences with Animal Biology Specialization and Microbiology and Cell Sciences. I also had a Minor in Chemistry.
    Following graduation, I practiced in a busy Small Animal General Practice in Ocala, FL for 18 months then moved on to Emergency and Critical Care Medicine in Ocala, Gainesville, Daytona, St. Augustine and Jacksonville. During my time in the Emergency Medicine setting I have obtained a wide array of experiences from Critical Care Medicine and a wide range of surgical procedures. With that being said I have a special interest in Critical Care Medicine and Surgery (Orthopedic and Soft Tissue).

    I am an active member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Florida Veterinary Medical Association, Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society, and the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association. I am the current President of the Jacksonville Medical Society.
    During my “free time” I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, Stephanie (who is also a veterinarian), my two beautiful children Kymber and Brody, my menagerie of pets (4 dogs, 2 cats, 4 tortoises 4 horses, and a pony). I also enjoy mechanics and restoring antique vehicles, especially jeeps; fishing and spending time outdoors.

    I truly look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) in the very near future!!!”

  • Dr. Jessie Burgess

    Dr. Jessie Burgess served as a relief veterinarian for several years before officially joining the team at Southside Animal Clinic in February of 2020. She is a graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!!), earning her Bachelors in Animal Sciences and Zoology in 2008, as well as Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and International Veterinary Medicine Certificate in 2012. After graduation, Dr. Burgess remained at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine to complete a one-year specialty internship in Integrative Medicine, including rehabilitation, acupuncture, nutrition and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Throughout her internship, she received her certification in veterinary acupuncture and further training in herbal medicines at the Chi Institute, completed in the fall of 2012. She then continued post-graduate training at the Canine Rehabilitation Institute to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT), completed in the fall of 2015. She is also passionate about One Health and international veterinary medicine, with previous veterinary trips to Belize, Zambia, Honduras, Ecuador and Nicaragua.

    Dr. Burgess is a native of Jacksonville and excited to continue to provide veterinary services to the town she calls home. Her professional interests include preventative medicine and health, soft tissue surgery and medical management for chronic pain and orthopedic disease. She is passionate about gentle handling of all her patients and positive reinforcement in the clinic setting, especially regarding geriatric and neurologic animals. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Burgess can be found living life to the fullest with her husband and two pups, Didier Dogba and Penelope Grace. They love doing anything involving the beach and being on the water, spending time outside hiking and backpacking, traveling, good Mexican food, and all things Chelsea soccer and college football.

  • My dog, Jack, had a great experience at Southside this week. The receptionists were very kind and helpful. His nurse, Brandon, was excellent. Jack hugged right on to him and looked comfortable. Dr. Burgess is awesome. She is very thorough, honest, and really cares about your fur baby. They followed up to check on him the next morning as well. Jack will definitely be back with more of his little bear hugs. Thank you!

  • So nice, we are new to town and it is always hard to trust a new vet. Our 1st experience was great and the vet was so nice and knowledgeable. Took care of our puppy as if she was their puppy.
