Dr. Richard Yi, DVM

Medical Director

Richard Yi, DVM was born and raised in beautiful Los Angeles, California. He received his BS in General Biology from University of California, San Diego and few years later went on to pursue further education to become a veterinarian. He attended and obtained his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (also finished his clinical year at University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine). Upon completion of his veterinary education, he went on to further expand his knowledge and experience by pursuing a small animal medicine and surgical internship. After successfully completing the internship, Dr. Yi decided to continue to practice his love for veterinary medicine locally in the Los Angeles area.

Dr. Yi’s primary goal is to provide the most current and excellent veterinary care that is founded upon the values of respect and trust, and communication that is driven by honesty and transparency. Dr. Yi loves both dogs and cats, but does have a special spot in his heart for Golden Retrievers and Siberian Huskies. When not at work, he likes to partake in outdoor activities (such as hiking, camping, fishing & rock climbing/bouldering – novice at best), watch movies, listen to music, and cook.
