Dr. Christian Payne


Christian Payne, DVM

Dr. Christian Payne was born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey. He had a passion for helping animals early on and has held almost every position available in the veterinary field! He’s been a kennel assistant, veterinary assistant, and eventually worked as a veterinary technician from high school through college. Christian completed his undergraduate education at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey with a biology degree in 2012.

Following graduation, he went to Western University of Health Sciences in sunny California to earn his veterinary degree in 2016. He had previously never been to California, but quickly fell in love with the state.

Ever the East Coaster, Christian returned to his home state and went on to complete a one-year small animal rotating internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey. He’s always had a special interest in emergency medicine, internal medicine, and cardiology, and he’s happy to have found a home in the ACCESS – San Fernando Valley ER.

During his spare time, Christian enjoys spending time with his wife, Brianna, and daughter, Harper. He absolutely loves being outdoors, hiking, playing volleyball, and going to the beach. Christian is excited to be back in California to fulfill his appetite for adventure, and he hopes to travel to copious places in the west and around the world!
