All of the staff here at the practice are excited to meet you and your four-legged family! Meet the team below;
Todd C. Estelle VMD
Hello! My name is Todd C. Estelle VMD. I am the new vet in town!
Our hospital is a full service general practice, able to provide most routine pet wellness care, vaccinations, urgent care/hospitalization, and a wealth of surgical procedures. I practice on most common pets, including: dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, hamsters, and some reptiles.
Hi there, my name is Steven Myers and I’m glad to say that I work with Dr. Estelle at Blandon Family Veterinary as Practice Manager! Having worked with Dr. Estelle on BFVP since February of 2012, I can honestly say that it is amazing to be a part of this practice, both as a manager and as a pet owner myself. I am very excited for all the opportunities and experiences still in store for us at BFVP!
Lindsey Hart, Receptionist
Hi there! My name is Lindsey Hart, and I’m very excited to be the smiling face that you’ll see when you visit the reception area at Blandon Family Veterinary Practice! I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful new family-oriented practice with Dr. Estelle, Steve, & the rest of the staff. With a Life Science degree from Penn State Berks, along with experience in both the veterinary field and the realm of customer service, I hope to convey the welcoming and compassionate atmosphere that I know all of us at BFVP will express to you, and especially the four legged members of your family! My love for being around and taking care of animals has always been a passion of mine. I love to help in any way I can, so it’s been great to be working up at the reception area getting to know our clients and patients, and it is also wonderful to be able to help Dr. Estelle or the Technician with appointments and surgeries when needed!
My loving husband, Mike, and I have two furry family members who we love dearly; a playful 14 year old Border Collie Mix named Lucky, and a spunky 3 year old Siamese named Jinx. I also enjoy caring for a 46 gallon aquarium full of 10 African Cichlids. One of our favorite places is Disney World, and Walt himself said it best. “The most important thing is family.” I hope to help your four-legged family members feel like a part of our family here at BFVP!
I am eager to meet and get to know your family as Blandon Family Veterinary Practice embarks on this amazing new journey!
Hi, everyone! My name is Nicole Matlack, and I am happy to say that I have joined the team at Blandon Family Veterinary Practice as the veterinary technician! I always have felt a special connection with animals and knew from a young age that I wanted to work with them when I was older. I attended Lehigh Carbon Community College and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Veterinary Technology. I sat for my national board exam in June of 2009 and have been a Certified Veterinary Technician since then. I completed my externship at Valley Central Emergency and Referral Center and have also worked with the local emergency service. Though the big hospitals were exceptional with the care they were able to provide, I found my place in the small general practice environment where I have worked for the past five years. I am fortunate to belong to a practice that believes in a family-oriented setting. Because of this, I am afforded opportunity to get to know both the patient and their family! I believe in treating each pet as if they were my own.
Through the years of work, I have adopted quite a few furry family members. I have three Yorkshire Terriers, five cats and one rabbit. Each came with their own set of quirks and story, but that is what makes each unique! Outside of work, I love to travel, especially to places where my dogs can come along for the trip!
I am excited to be part of the Blandon Family Veterinary Practice team and honored that you have chosen us to be part of your furry family member’s care!
Katherine Trostle, Veterinary Assistant
Hi! I’m Katherine Trostle, and I joined the BFVP team as a veterinary assistant. You may see me around the office helping any one of the team members with their jobs, as I’m trying to learn as much as I can for my veterinary school application. I grew up in North Carolina on a large horse and goat farm. This is where I first encountered my intense love for animals. My first dog was a cocker spaniel named Buttons, and I was found taking his temperature with my toy thermometer when I was two years old. My mother couldn’t get the camera fast enough.
I graduated from Oley Valley High School in 2011, and I am currently heading into my senior year at Penn State University with a major in Veterinary and Biomedical Science. My mother has been a registered nurse for my entire life, so I naturally gained a love and respect for medicine. My love of animals simply aided me in deciding where I wanted to take my love for medicine. My goal is to finish my degree at Penn State and then continue on to veterinary school to become a veterinarian!
My four-legged family is quite large! It contains a German Shepherd (Chloe), a retired racing Greyhound (Morgan), two miniature Dachshunds (Cece and Jojo), a cat (Neco), and a guinea pig (Penelope). As you have probably already determined, my house is basically a zoo…but there is never a dull moment!
I’m so excited to be a part of such a wonderful, close-knit veterinary practice, and I couldn’t be more thankful to Dr. Estelle and his team for taking the time to enhance my education. Your furry family will be well taken care of, and the BFVP team will definitely be able to educate you as they are continually educating me!
