What makes us different?
We make our patients, clients, and staff feel right at home! Our facility was formerly a private residence and maintains that homey feel with natural light and spacious exam rooms. Dr. Litfin has been at LPHC since 1987 and has built a team with great longevity that takes a slower, easy pace to medicine. Pet wellness is our main priority, and we primarily perform routine, soft tissue services; however, we appreciate the benefits of alternative medicine and are open to expanding and elevating our services, with the help of a new Associate!
The state’s capitol and a family-friendly community packed into one, Topeka is a city filled with history, culture, and fun. Enjoy a family outing at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center’s immersive learning exhibit, catch a drag race Heartland Park, and for anyone who loves the outdoors, lace up your tennis shoes and venture out to one of Topeka’s many local parks and playgrounds. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself quickly cheering on the K-State Wildcats in Manhattan, or their Lawrence rivals, the KU Jayhawks, or even the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs. No matter your idea of fun, Topeka has countless options for singles and families and is a short, hour drive to downtown Kansas City, MO.
As you consider your career goals, keep in mind how an opportunity with LPHC will help you achieve them.
