Northgate Animal Clinic Staff


Dr. Richard B. Clark
Owner/ Veterinarian

IMG 3445

Dr. Clark joined the practice in 1998 after receiving his B.S. from the University of Central Florida and his DVM from Ross University.

Dr. Clark’s interest in veterinary medicine grew out of his raising and showing of dogs with his family in the late 1980s. He went on to judge dog shows for AKC & World Wide Kennel Club in the early 90s. This helped mold his career as a veterinarian and inspired his interest in reproductive medicine.

Dr. Clark serves as the Secretary/ Treasurer of Lake County Veterinarian Association, a position he has held since 2000. He is a past member of the Leesburg Jay Cee’s. Dr. Clark is an active member of Morrison United Methodist Church and enjoys boating, camping, and being the Crew Chief for his sons' motorcycle racing team.

Dr. Kathie Robinson
Associate Veterinarian

Female Doc 9.15After graduating with a bachelors in Biology from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI and a D.V.M. from the University of Illinois, I moved to Central Florida (18 years ago) to practice small animal medicine.  I love the challenge that practicing medicine on animals is never the same from day to day.  I like to view my furry four-legged patients as an extension of my own family, treating them as if they are one of my own.
