About Dr. Effie, CityVet Oak Lawn

What do you enjoy the most about being a Veterinarian?

I love that we see such a variety of species and challenging medical and surgical cases.  I also love seeing patients get better and how happy that makes their family!

Chloe, my cat, Raji and Linus Pookie, my dogs.  I also have just acquired guardianship of 12 koi fish.

Talk to as many people as possible who are knowledgeable about that species or breed, but most of all spend time getting to know your new pet.

What do you enjoy doing with your free time?

Hot yoga and hiking, camping, and exploring with my husband and 2 sons, and listening to good music.
