Is this covenant not to compete considered unreasonable?

I am a veterinarian and was employed for more than three years before being fired. The reason for firing was because I told my boss I was opening my own practice in 6 months. My non compete clause states that I cannot practice within five miles of his clinic for one year, which I am not. But it also states that I cannot practice veterinary medicine on any current patient of his clinic for that same time period. So basically if a current patient of my former employer walks through my door, do I have to turn them away or does this infringe on the public's right to choose a veterinarian?
