Dr. Andrea Kirsch: Owner. Dr. Kirsch graduated from the University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988, and has been practicing small animal medicine and surgery for 25 years in Northern California. For the past 20 years, Dr. Kirsch has been working in the Sacramento area. She enjoys treating exotic animals, and has a special interest in diagnostic ultrasound. While completing her undergraduate studies at UC Davis, she competed for the Cal Aggie Cyclists bike team, and met her husband Doug. They still enjoy weekend rides and bicycle touring together. Earlier this Fall, Dr. Kirsch lost her beloved dog Marco, and she is adjusting to life without his companionship. Her other two dogs, Sheila and Yoyo, were also rescued, and they continue to bring joy and unconditional love to the household, and they provide a constant reminder of how special animals can be to us in our daily lives. Dr. Kirsch envisions NatomasVeterinaryHospital being a practice where you can bring your animal family members to for great veterinary care in a friendly, upbeat environment. She looks forward to meeting you and your pets!
Dr. Briar Corder: Associate Veterinarian. Dr. Corder graduated with honors from UC Davis Veterinary School in 2006, and has been practicing in the Sacramento area ever since. She grew up in Southern Caliifornia, where she spent most of her time at the stable riding her horse, Howie. After high school she moved to Northern California and has never looked back. Along with her husband and two young daughters, she enjoys spending time with their 10 year old black lab, Dakota, and their cat, Rosie. In their free time they love being outdoors, camping, riding bikes, swimming, or just going to the park. We are excited to have her join our team!
Dr. Jean Cheng: Associate Veterinarian. Dr. Cheng attended the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and graduated with honors in 2007. She loves every aspect of veterinary medicine, and really enjoys spending time with fellow animal lovers and caring for their animal companions. Dr. Cheng was born here but she grew up in Taiwan, and then lived for three years in South Africa before returning to Sacramento for High School. In her spare time she likes to travel, watch basketball, sing with her church choir, and enjoy life with her husband and their three cats Baby, Sushi, and Boo Ding. We are extremely happy that she has joined our team!
Dr. Kelly Torrisi: Associate Veterinarian. Dr. Torrisi graduated from Washington State University in 2007, and following graduation she taught reproductive medicine at Oklahoma State University. She then completed another internship specializing in equine medicine and surgery in Southern California before coming up to practice in the Sacramento area, which she now calls home. Dr Torrisi joined our team in July 2011 to help Dr Kirsch on Mondays and Tuesdays, and her warm bedside manner and gentle nature have been truly appreciated. Dr Torrisi's current focus is practicing large animal medicine in the Foothills, but she still helps Dr Kirsch on occasion, and Dr Torrisi's enthusiasm and kind heartedness are appreciated by everyone who meets her!
