Meet the Doctors

RICHARD D. LINDSAY, DVM

Founder

Dr. Lindsay is a 1954 graduate of MSU. He is retired in that he no longer sees clients, but can still be found daily in the hospital consulting with medical cases or fixing broken pipes. He also maintains a strong presence in the community, working in support of many local organizations.

Kimberly Wadsworth, DVM

Dr. Wadsworth joined our hospital in August 2007. She grew up in New York State, so that makes her a hard core Yankees fan (but we try not to hold that against her). She obtained her degree in Animal Science at the University of Vermont, in Burlington, Vermont in 1986 and earned her DVM degree at Cornell in 1990. She spent the next two years working in a mixed animal practice in Cobleskill, N.Y.  With a desire to be near the ocean, she moved to North Dartmouth, MA in 1992 and joined a small animal hospital where she spent the next 15 years. Now that she has joined our group, she is very excited to pursue her interests in preventative medicine, dentistry, neurology, ophthalmology, and teaching. 

Hamilton Lincoln, VMD

Dr. Lincoln grew up in central Massachusetts.  He attended the University of Massachusetts, receiving a BS in zoology.  After working in research for a few years, he attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1998.  He has a special interest in medicine and surgery of avian and exotic species.  He joined us in January 2001.  He lives in New Hampshire with his wife and three sons.  For pets, he currently has a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, three cats, and two guinea pigs.

Katie Faris, VMD

She finished her B.S. and M.S. at Utah State University before attending the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2001. In Vermont, she was a mixed-animal practitioner, in the spirit of James Herriot, taking care of cats, dogs, cows, horses, goats, sheep, and wildlife. She then moved to Maryland to an exclusively small animal practice north of Baltimore. In her spare time, her interests include marathons, triathlon, hiking biking, gardening, and skiing.
