Dr. Van Doren joined LCVH in July 2007, after graduating from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. She was born and raised in Southern California, but left to attend college in upstate New York. After moving to Northern California for veterinary school, she liked it so much she decided to stay. In addition to dogs and cats, Dr. Van Doren enjoys working with reptiles and birds, and takes a special interest in animal behavior. Her personal menagerie includes a parakeet, two leopard geckos, a crested gecko, and her cats "Hobbes" and "Leeloo".
In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, camping, playing polo, reading and watching movies.
Knowledgeable caring staff and doctors. We’ve been bringing our fur babies here for more than 25 years and can’t recommend them enough!
When we had to euthanize our beloved Lab, Dr. Purewal was as saddened as we were.
Nichole, we want to once again offer our deepest sympathies to you about the passing of your beloved dog, as we know how difficult it can be to part with such an amazing companion.Thank you for sharing your heartfelt review, and if you ever need anything else, please let us know.
