Hello, I am Dr. Gregory Shukhman.
I am a first generation Russian, American and have been in the animal field for over 15 years. I graduated veterinary school from the only veterinary school in Southern California, Western University. There, I learned to incorporate everyday life into medical knowledge and positive medical outcomes through preventive care. I feel strongly that practicing preventive care will keep you out of most uncomfortable pet ailment situations. I attend medical conferences yearly to keep up to date with the latest technical advancements in veterinary medicine in order to better serve my patients and their parents. On my time off I enjoy playing ice hockey about once or twice weekly and am part of a league. I truly believe in a well balanced lifestyle and practice my medicine in the same fashion, involving the pet's family as part of the solution to good quality preventive care. I look forward to serving your family!
