Spencer Nice, DVM, practice owner

Dr. Nice is proud to be the owner of Commonwealth Veterinary Clinic. What started as a high school mentorship experience in 1997 has led to a career that he still thoroughly enjoys today. In addition to managing the clinic, Dr. Nice enjoys seeing patients and performing surgery. When he's not working here at the clinic, Dr. Nice can usually be found on the baseball field, basketball court, or theater--chasing around his 3 very active children.  He and his wife Melissa make their home in Stuarts Draft, VA with their children Aaron, Alandra, and Easton.

Conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes and oral health are particular areas of interest.  She also loves helping clients and patients cope with behavior issues. In her spare time, Dr. Barton enjoys spending time with her husband Volker and her two sons, Levin and Luka.
