Dr. Tabitha Barber

Dr. Barber graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2019.  Prior to opening River Bend Veterinary Clinic, she worked in emergency medicine.  One of the most exciting parts of opening the practice is being able to get to know her furry patients and taking care of them through all parts of their life.  Dr. Barber lives in the country with her husband, Matt.  Together, they have one human teenager, Brenna (usually referred to as Young One), four cats, and two dogs.  When not at the clinic, they love to travel, especially to Disney, and hang out by the pool!


Dr. Loral Sayre

Dr. Sayre is a graduate of Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine.  Dr. Sayre and her husband, Jay, have recently moved to the River Region from Dothan, Alabama.  Dr. Sayre has been practicing veterinary medicine for 11 years with 8 of those years in emergency medicine and critical care.  Her interests include reading, gardening and video games. 


Matt Barber

I am looking forward to being a part of the fascinating world of veterinary medicine. With 20 years of experience in the field of architecture and construction, understanding my client’s point of view is something that comes natural to me. As you can imagine, being married to a Veterinarian, animals have been a part of our lives for a long time. I love to meet new people and listen to their stories; you can always learn something from anyone. As Practice Manager, I will do my best to make sure you and your fur babies are taken care of. I hope you will enjoy our new practice and everything it has to offer.
