Our Veterinarians

Dr. Kevin Chapman

Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Kevin Chapman’s mother worked as an emergency room nurse while he was growing up, and young Dr. Chapman adored accompanying her to the hospital and meeting the heroes who saved lives on a daily basis. When he and his family took an injured dog to their local veterinary office one fateful day, Dr. Chapman had a startling realization: he could combine his love of medicine with his passion for pets! He’s known since the age of 12 that he wanted to become a veterinarian.

Originally from Colorado, Dr. Chapman and his family settled in Georgia after several moves. He attended the University of Georgia, majoring in agricultural microbiology and completing his pre-requisite requirements for veterinary school, before earning his Doctorate from the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

After graduation, Dr. Chapman accepted a job at a veterinary clinic in Punta Gorda, Florida. A year later, he proposed to his wife and moved back to Georgia, where he took a position at a local animal clinic. Dr. Chapman would remain there for the next seven years—by 1995, though, he was ready to open his own practice in order to supply his compassionate brand of veterinary medicine to the pet owners of the area. He achieved his dream when he opened the doors of Hoschton Animal Hospital to the public!

Medically, Dr. Chapman is fond of surgery and diagnostic work. His favorite part of every day, though, is interacting with his clientele in the exam room; he works hard to keep everything positive, and believes strongly that “attitude determines altitude!”

Dr. Chapman lives with his wife Sue, who works as a faculty member at the University of Georgia, and their son, Noah. The family shares their lives with a pair of black Labrador Retrievers, Laser and Artie, as well as a red tabby cat named Dexter. They also have two outdoor cats, Tango and White Feet, who guard the barn.

When he isn’t caring for pets here at the clinic or spending time with his family, Dr. Chapman enjoys tending to the nearly 30 goats he raises on his property, skiing in the wintertime, fishing, and serving as a coach in recreational football leagues.

Dr. Keith Stout

Associate Veterinarian

Growing up in southern Louisiana, Dr. Keith Stout always had a passion for nature and the great outdoors. Thanks to his affinity for animals and a fascination with the medical field, he quickly realized that veterinary medicine was the perfect career choice!

After completing his undergraduate studies, Dr. Stout attended Louisiana State University to earn his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He then moved to Georgia in 1996 and started here at Hoschton Animal Hospital as a relief veterinarian. In short order, Dr. Stout became a permanent Associate Veterinarian and has been here ever since. He has particular interests in surgical work and complicated medical cases.

In his time away from work, Dr. Stout enjoys spending time with his cat, Ash, relaxing in the outdoors, and tinkering with electronics. He once saved an entire computer by diagnosing and replacing three bad capacitors on the motherboard—not an easy task!

Dr. Mandy Roberts

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Mandy Roberts’ first pet, a Siamese cat named Max, joined her family when Dr. Roberts was only four years old. She fondly remembers going with Max to the vet’s office, where he received vaccines and was declawed and neutered. Dr. Roberts tended to him when they got home, and she fell in love immediately. She decided right then and there that she was going to become a veterinarian herself!

Dr. Roberts grew up in St. Louis, Missouri as the oldest of three children. She began her veterinary career at the ripe age of 14, when she started as a kennel attendant at a pet clinic in Marietta, Georgia. By the time she was 18, she was assisting with exams, dental work, vaccines, and even surgeries! Dr. Roberts attended Auburn University after high school to study animal and dairy sciences before gaining acceptance into the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her DVM degree.

Shortly before graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Roberts attended a University of Georgia and Auburn University tailgate event, where she first met Dr. Chapman. Although the two were cheering for opposite sides—Dr. Roberts was decked out in Auburn attire, while Dr. Chapman was supporting his beloved Dawgs —they connected, and Dr. Chapman invited Dr. Roberts to set up an externship here at the clinic. It didn’t take long for Dr. Roberts to realize that Hoschton Animal Hospital was exactly where she wanted to start her veterinary career! She’s been a part of the clinic family since 2006.

Dr. Roberts, her husband, and their children share their home with three lovable dogs: Scooter, Harley, and Molly. When she has a spare moment between her busy work and family schedules, Dr. Roberts enjoys bicycling, gardening, and playing the drums. She’s been a percussionist for over 15 years—she played the tenor drums in Auburn University’s drumline for three years, and currently plays for her church in Braselton.
