His special interests include surgery (especially orthopedic), geriatrics and nutrition. Dr. Jim also works with Carolina Basset Hound Rescue, and the Greensboro Police Canine Unit.

Dr. Jim’s hobbies include boating, camping, fishing, and spending time with his son, Jonathan, as well as his two dogs and two cats.

Dr. Mark Brigham grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. It was on his way to earning the Eagle Award in Scouting that he developed an interest in veterinary medicine. At the University of Maryland, he earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Animal Science and subsequently earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida in 1981.

While at the University of Florida, he married his high school sweetheart, Kathy. She is the daughter of two Greensboro residents, the Reverend Roland James and his wife, Marcia. Together, Dr. Mark and Kathy have raised two children. Their son, Josh, is a graduate of Elon University with a B.S. In Biology and their daughter, Kim, is a rising senior at Appalachian State.

Though Dr. Mark is new to Lake Brandt Veterinary Hospital, he is not new to Greensboro. He has spent over 27 years in a practice in southwest Greensboro and welcomes the opportunity to enjoy the countryside of Northeast Guilford County.

Professionally, Dr. Mark likes urgent care triage, preventative medical care, challenging internal medicine cases and soft tissue surgery. In his spare time, he enjoys outdoor activities with his family, especially fishing and hiking.
