Dr. Torsch likes all aspects of veterinary medicine particularly his time spent in the exam room with his clients and their pets.


frank.jpgGrowing up in central Kentucky, Dr. McClure spent much of his childhood on the farms of his relatives. He experienced working with the animals and knew then that he wanted to be in a profession that involved animals. He still dreams about driving a tractor some day.

Frank completed his undergraduate work at the University of Kentucky and remains loyal to "The Big Blue". He came to our clinic in 1991, following his graduation from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University.

Dr. McClure married his wife Lisa in 1991 following their graduation from veterinary school. His wife was a classmate and is also a doctor of veterinary medicine. They have two sons, Scott and Mark.. The entire family plays tennis and they frequently enjoy competitive family matches. His family enjoys almost any activity that involves the outdoors.

Frank enjoys the quality medicine and surgery that the clients and staff of Main Street Animal Clinic make possible. He has a particular interest in client education as he feels that an educated pet owner is better able to help him help his patient.
