Veterinarians

Dr. Hall

Dr. David Hall

Dr. David Hall is the owner of HLAH. He has worked here since 1987, with one brief interruption when he practiced in Quincy, Il for four years. He lives at home with his wife, Kathy, and son, Dylan. He has 2 adult children, Tristan and Rhiannon. They have two dogs: two Golden Retrievers-Baron, who he has to fight for Kathy’s attention, and Maggie, their “special” child. They also share their home with one DSH cat – Oliver, “originally my daughter’s cat who I won’t give back”. Dr. Hall’s hobbies include playing the guitar in the church band & with friends, and playing the drums in alternative cover bands. He loves the Cardinals, Blues, & Chiefs, and is a wine aficionado. Dr. Hall is a member of veterinary study groups that are always working to improve hospital efficiency and service to patients and clients. Because he only sees patients three days a week, people think he only  works three days a week. What many people don’t know is that he is almost always here 6 days a week! His favorite thing about Horseshoe is that every day is different. He gets to be a pediatrician, obstetrician, cardiologist, radiologist, dermatologist, oncologist, etc… No one here is “in it for the money”. He loves working with people who love what they do. He also loves the relationships he has formed with his clients – many of them feel more like friends!

He lives with his wife, Angie, and two children, Alison and Christopher. He also has two step sons, Josh and Larry. They have two dogs , Lacey and Chloe, and three cats – Tigger, Princess, and Snowball. Dr. Randla’s hobbies include watching his kids play sports and watching sports on TV, Six Flags, and playing video games with his kids and slot machines with his wife. His favorite thing about HLAH is the people (coworkers & clients) that he gets the opportunity to interact with on a daily basis, the variety of cases we get to see, and of course getting to improve the health and well being of our patients.
