Dr. Timothy Preston


Timothy Preston, BVSc (Hons), MVetSurg, MVetClinStud, DACVS-SA


Dr. Tim Preston joins us as our in-house globetrotter surgeon. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Tim has been gathering skills and expertise from around the world to bring to ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – San Fernando Valley. He obtained his veterinary degree from Melbourne University and studied there with our other illustrious surgeon, Dr. Yonathan Buks.
After vet school, Tim underwent vigorous internships in Oregon and Washington State, followed by an ACVS surgical residency training back in Perth, Australia.

Once finished with his training in Perth, Tim undertook an assistant professorship at Purdue University in soft tissue surgery. During this time, he oversaw resident, intern, and student clinical surgical training. Tim now joins us after helping build a surgical service in the interior of British Columbia.

He brings with him extensive experience in oncologic, soft tissue, and orthopedic surgeries and hopes to continue to expand the surgical services offered at our San Fernando Valley hospital.

Outside of work Tim enjoys spending time with his wife (a chocolatier), cooking, hiking, traveling, and enjoying the great outdoors.
