Dr. Katherine Doerr joins Dermatology for Animals!
Dermatology for Animals is happy to welcome Katherine Doerr, DVM, DACVD to our California locations in Campbell and at our new location at 8053 Valencia Street in Aptos. Dr. Doerr brings fresh energy and enthusiasm to our organization! Many of you already know her since she has been treating dermatology patients in the Bay area for the last year. Dr. Doerr was raised on the Atlantic coast in Florida and started working as a veterinary nurse as a teenager. She took a detour in her career to perform environmental remediation work at NASA-Kennedy Space Center during college; however, she knew that Veterinary Medicine was her passion and therefore attended the University of Florida to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.
Having graduated magna cum laude, Dr. Doerr participated in a rigorous small animal specialty and teaching internship at the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a dermatology residency at the University of California at Davis. Having a keen interest in allergic skin disease as well as cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease, she was involved in research concerning canine skin barrier function as well as research on calcinosis cutis. Both were published in the international journal, Veterinary Dermatology.
Dr. Doerr is enjoying her new dermatology home and the Campbell team members, and those of us at D4A are certainly enjoying the enthusiasm and knowledge she brings each morning. Her clients love her thorough and thoughtful approach to the challenging skin diseases seen at D4A so if you have not already met Dr. Doerr and you are in need of a veterinary dermatologist in the Campbell or Aptos areas of California, please give us a call.
