About Us


Marketplace Animal Hospital is a privately owned small animal veterinary practice in Lenexa, Kansas.

Since starting in 1989 by Dr. Phil Radakovich and Dr. Jerry Immethun, Marketplace Animal Hospital has provided exceptional veterinary care to thousands of dogs and cats.  Over the past 3 decades the doctors have remained true to their core beliefs of providing excellent care to patients and clients at a reasonable price.  There are no "plans" to sell or cookie-cutter packages, just individualized patient treatment accompanied with options tailored to fit each clients' needs and budget.  The doctors and staff at Marketplace Animal Hospital cherish the long-lasting friendships they have forged over the years with clients and their pets. We welcome you to our family and hope you will take a few minutes to learn about our doctors below.

Our Doctors
Dr. Phil Radakovich

Dr. Phil Radakovich graduated from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ames, Iowa in 1985.  After graduation he worked at a small animal hospital in Naperville, Illinois for 4 years.  There he met his future business partner, Dr. Jerry Immethun.  Together they opened Marketplace Animal Hospital in May of 1989.  Dr. Radakovich has six children that keep him busy and "young"......so he says!  He enjoys golfing, biking, reading, and walking his dogs in his free time.  He is an active member in the Latin Mass Community of St. Philippine Duchesne Catholic Church.  Dr. Radakovich enjoys both the medical and surgical cases he sees at Marketplace Animal Hospital, but truly loves being a part of the human-animal bond that brings so much joy to our families.

Dr. Jerry Immethun

Dr. Jerry Immethun grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, the second of four children.  He attended the University of Missouri, graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1984.  While in school he met and married his wife, Joan, with whom he has three adult daughters.  He enjoys hanging with the grand kids and going to his small farm where he exemplifies the statement, "the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys!"  He also enjoys fishing and do-it-yourself projects of all types......he is really just too cheap to pay someone.  At work, Dr. Immethun likes both medical and surgical cases.  Looking back through the years, he feels blessed to have come to know so many pets and the owners that love them.  He feels very lucky to have been in a profession such as veterinary medicine where there is opportunity to help both pets and their owners.

Dr. Brian Godsey

Dr. Brian Godsey's love for animals started when he was very young.  He started working for Marketplace Animal Hospital, as a kennel worker, when he was in early high school.  After 7 years in Manhattan, Kansas, attending Kansas State University, Dr. Godsey returned to Marketplace Animal Hospital as an associate veterinarian in 2011.  He is married to another veterinarian who also practices in the area.  In his spare time he enjoys working in the yard, running, and taking in nature while walking his dog, Bella, a cattle dog mix.

Dr. Elizabeth Craig

Dr. Elizabeth Craig grew up in Conyer, GA where she was the middle child with two brothers.  She attended Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2018 before moving to Kansas City with her husband. She enjoys both surgical and medical cases and while she loves working with all species, she has a special bond with her feline patients. When Dr. Craig is not at work, she enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, and catering to the needs of her cat, Birch, and her dog, Hershey.

Dr. Morgan Shmidl

Dr. Morgan Shmidl is a long time Lenexa resident and has been bringing her own pets to Marketplace Animal Hospital for 17 years.  Her first word was "cat" and she has loved animals since she was young. She graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2019 and is so happy to be practicing close to home.  While Dr. Shmidl loves surgery and internal medicine cases, her favorite part of the veterinary profession is establishing relationships with clients and their pets. When she's not working she enjoys going to the lake and traveling as much as she can.  Dr. Shmidl has one cat, Calvin.
