Veterinarians and Staff

 Veterinarians at Ironstone


Sherilyn Allen, VMD, U of PA Vet 1974, founded Ironstone Veterinary Hospital in 1982. An equine practitioner for many years before establishing small animal veterinary hospitals in Lansdale, PA and then Boyertown, Dr. Allen also raised three children and engaged in breeding and showing of Neapolitan Mastiffs, and other dogs, horses, various farm animals species, and exotic birds, while managing and maintaining Ironstone Farm.

Now that her children are grown and gone, when Dr. Allen is not in the clinic consulting and treating patients with allopathic or holistic methods, or doing specialty surgeries on the Mastiff breed dogs, she can usually be found on the back of a horse.

Ironstone Hospital Staff

Theresa Eshbach- Technician/Office Manager

I have been a technician for over 15 years when I eagerly chose to make Ironstone Veterinary Hospital my home in 2004. I all enjoy all facets of this profession but I am truly passionate about dentistry and cold laser therapy. Working with a great team makes my job that much more enjoyable. When I am not at work I spend my free time taking my Doberman, Terra, for hikes, soaking up the sun or just snuggling on the sofa. 


Barbara Stiefel- Groomer/Technician

I have lived in the Boyertown area most of my life. I have worked at Ironstone as a tech and pet groomer since 1982. I raise Newfoundlands and have additional dogs, cats, and birds of my own.  


Mary Lloyd- Receptionist/Technician 

I have worked at Ironstone since June 2011. My favorite thing about working here is being able to see the horses. I live in Northwestern Berks County. I have a dog named Henry and a cat named Thistle. I enjoy cooking, knitting, reading, and hiking.
