Dr. Kristi Falk, Veterinarian

Dr. Kristi Falk

Kristi is originally from North Dakota where she attended North Dakota State University for her undergraduate studies in microbiology.

Kristi later attended Iowa State University, graduating with a special interest in exotic medicine and surgery. She began her career at a small animal and exotic hospital in Los Angeles County before moving and joining The Animal Doctor team in 2016.

Because of her diligent attention to detail in exotics, she is also a fantastic dog and cat veteterinarian. Her other medical interests include soft tissue surgery, neurology, and ophthalmology. In her spare time, Kristi enjoys hiking and camping with her husband and their two dogs. She also likes to relax by curling up with her two Bengals and a good book.
