DVM, Owner & founder

William J. Prevatt, DVM, founder of New Frontier AMC, received his BS in microbiology at Colorado State University in May 1977. He then began work on a Masters in Microbiology. He was accepted to the CSU School of Veterinary Medicine after completing only 2 years of his Masters program. Veterinary Medicine was his highest priority, so he chose to suspend the Masters and began his doctorate. He was an Army ROTC scholarship student as an undergraduate, was commissioned and received an educational delay to finish his doctorate.

Dr. Prevatt graduated from CSU with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in May 1983. He went on active duty as a Captain and was assigned to Ft. Huachuca as the Post Veterinarian. He served for 3 years at Ft. Huachuca, during which time he implemented an equine herd health program and designed and began construction of the Ft. Huachuca equine/small animal treatment/surgical facility that is present to this day. He was then sent to Ouijambu, Korea for 1 year as the commander, 106 Medical Detachment, Team A, 2nd Infantry Division. Dr. Prevatt out processed from the Army May 1987 and returned to Sierra Vista to open New Frontier Animal Medical Center.

Dr. Prevatt nourished and built the practice to the status it is today. He, his wife Becky, and children Steven and Connie, relocated to Scottsdale in April 2001 to be closer to family with medical needs. Although Dr. Prevatt has retired as Chief Surgeon of Animal Health Services of Cave Creek, he still owns and orchestrates New Frontier Animal Medical Center from north Scottsdale.

He was the percussionist for Calvary Chapel Sierra Vista’s worship team for 15 years and now plays with the Calvary Chapel North Phoenix worship team. Jesus Christ has always been an integral part of his life and is the reason that New Frontier AMC is what it is. He enjoys all sports and an active life style. He lettered in wrestling and springboard diving in high school and played Rugby for Colorado State University. He was the 2nd Infantry Division and 8th Army, Korea, Tae Kwon Do Red Belt champion in 1986. He coached select soccer in Sierra Vista for 8 years and was slotted for the Buena High School freshman soccer coach until he moved to Scottsdale. He enjoys water skiing, snow skiing, golf and just about all sports.
