Warm Hugs in the South Bay ER!

Jessica is one of the many amazing team members at ACCESS South Bay and she brought her own cat, Honey, in for a recheck. Honey loves hugs and had a great day with her mom at work!

How Long Does A Veterinary Specialist Go To School?

Did you know that veterinary specialists go through four years of undergrad, four years of veterinary school, a one-year internship and a three-to-five-year residency before taking their board exams? After all of that, they then need to acquire continuing education credits to maintain their licenses!

Dr. Clarisa Robles (pictured) is Los Angeles native and a board-certified neurology specialist. Along with her great technical training, she brings with her wonderful communication skills and a fondness for building close relationships with referring veterinarians and her patients’ families. She finds such collaboration allows for the best possible patient and client care.

Her interests include inflammatory brain disease, down dogs, and encephalitis, as well as spinal and intracranial surgery.

 

Joel in the Trenches!

Joel is the MRI Technician in the Neurology & Neurosurgery Department for ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospitals, Los Angeles.

He’s always looking for ways to help the hospital and his coworkers, and he decided to do a deep cleaning of the kennel drain.

Welcoming Dr. Reunan Guillou…

Dr. Sawyer visits the Korean Youth & Community Center

Dr. Sawyer gave her “So You Want to Be a Veterinarian” talk at the Korean Youth & Community Center in Koreatown recently!

There were over 20 children in attendance and they were some of the most behaved and well-mannered group of kids either of us had seen before!  They absorbed all the info, asked great questions, and even stumped Dr. Sawyer with a scientific species name for a panther.

We always love seeing little faces faces light up, and we can practically see the wheels turning in their heads when they realize what veterinarians do for animals, so they can maybe grow up to do that too.
