Meet Our Vets

Dr Lindsay Hay


Lindsay has been a veterinarian for more than 30 years and has been a principal at the Hospital since 1985. He is the owner of the practice and has overall management responsibility. He enjoys the medical and surgical challenges presented in veterinary practice and likes the “people” side of our work as well. He has a Master’s degree from Murdoch University, is a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in Canine Surgery and is a Member of the Australia Institute of Management.

He has been honoured in the past as “Veterinary Practitioner of the Year” by the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association and has received a Meritorious Service Award from the Australian Veterinary Association. He has been actively involved with the Australian Veterinary Association in various ways since 1976. He is presently Vice President of the Australian Veterinary Practice Management Association and is a member of the External Advisory Committee to the Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Science.

Lindsay is married to Liz and they have 3 adult children. They share their house with 2 dogs, 2 budgies and some fish. Lindsay spends his “spare” time as a dad, at the gym, at the theatre and has a keen interest in food (cooking and eating) and wine.

Dr Murray Caisley


Murray joined the practice in 1987 when he graduated from University.

He is our longest serving staff member and has broad veterinary skills in both medicine and surgery as well as special skills with dentistry and in the treatment of our native animals (particularly reptiles).

Murray is also the proud Dad of his two children.

Dr Lisa Christoffel


Lisa joined us at the beginning of 2001 after graduating from Sydney University with a First-class Honours degree under her arm and a lot of the latest veterinary information to share with us and our clients.

She is a local resident who attended Baulkham Hills High School and gained several years’ experience as a veterinary receptionist and assistant during her veterinary studies.

Lisa also spent 6 months working as a Veterianarian in a Small Animal practice in the United Kingdom. Lisa is married and has a very cheeky dog.
