About

Dr. Lang, a native Pittsburgher, took a roundabout path to becoming a veterinarian. While earning her degree in English literature from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, she frequently volunteered at local animal shelters. After graduating, she worked her way into management, training, and new hire coaching at Verizon Wireless. She loved the teaching and mentoring aspects of her business career but felt like something was missing. So, she left her job, interned at a zoo, and attended veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania. During her time at Penn, Melanie served on the admissions committee, traveled to Thailand to spay and neuter stray animals, served on the national board of the Veterinary Business Association, and founded PennVet’s beer club. After graduation, she completed a one-year rotating internship in medicine and surgery. She works as an emergency clinician and resides in Philadelphia with her two kitties. She likes to hike, explore new nooks of the city, and continue her quest to find the best moderately-priced bourbon.

Fun Fact
Melanie appeared on Man Finds Food on the Travel Channel!

10/10 - efficient, smart, funny, compassionate veterinarian. Thanks Dr. Lang - Maximus can't wait to see you again!!

About

Seeking the next new adventure and providing community service have always been the greatest motivations for Dr. Murray’s life path. But it was not until she took a year off from college and traveled around the world that she recognized the possibility of helping both people and animals through veterinary medicine. In vet school at Penn, Megan continued to seek adventures by co-directing the group "Pou Sante: Amar Haiti," a non-profit organization that allows veterinary students to work with Haitians to provide veterinary care to their communities. Since graduating, Megan has completed a small animal rotating internship at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. When not working, she enjoys long naps, hiking with her dog, Frankie, and planning her next adventure abroad. She lives in Philly with Frankie and her three tabby cats (Hobey, Stevie, and Snoop Dogg). 

Fun Fact
Megan was a bartender for 3 years before going to vet school!

Dr. Meg was awesome.  She was great with my dog, she was friendly and easy to chat with!  I would totally recommend this service to other people!

About

Dr. Bernstein has always loved animals—all animals. As a child, she begged her parents to take in any stray cat, backyard duck, or passing dragonfly she could get her hands on. After her parents declined to turn their home into a wildlife refuge for her assorted animal friends, Rebecca went on to study communications at Northwestern University before pursuing her real passion by attending veterinary school. At the University of Pennsylvania, Rebecca not only earned her VMD but also gained extracurricular experience in critical care nursing and by traveling to Thailand to provide veterinary care to animals in need. After graduating from Penn, Rebecca completed an internship in emergency and critical care medicine and currently practices as an emergency veterinarian. She lives with her husband and their handsome Great Dane in Philadelphia. When she's not working, Rebecca enjoys traveling, trying out new restaurants (she's a vegetarian), and taking nice strolls with her husband and dog along the city's beautiful streets.

Fun Fact
Rebecca was previously a featured veterinarian on Animal Planet!

Dr. Bernstein is highly recommended. She was patient with our pet, as he was nervous, and did a very thorough examination. She explained to me what happened, how to treat and how to monitor further once resolved. She also followed up rapidly with a summary of the meeting and is highly responsive to questions. She will be coming back to our home soon for our other dogs annual check up!

About

Dr. Russell’s family had all kinds of pets while she was growing up—dogs, cats, ferrets, iguanas, and even pot-bellied pigs. While studying communications at the University of Pennsylvania and working in advertising after college, Caitlin volunteered at animal shelters to get her “dog fix.” She soon began spending more and more time at the shelter and eventually at the adjoining veterinary hospital. She had realized her true passion! Caitlin went on to attend veterinary school at Penn, where she gained extracurricular experience by traveling to the Galapagos Islands and to Sioux reservations in South Dakota to provide veterinary care to rural communities. She currently practices as an emergency veterinarian, and her professional interests include emergency and critical care, surgery, and shelter medicine. Caitlin lives in Philadelphia with her border collie, Lola. Outside of work, she enjoys playing squash and tennis, reading, traveling, and spending time in the Adirondack Mountains.

Fun Fact
Caitlin lived in San Francisco and worked at Google Inc., before deciding to pursue veterinary school!

Caitlin seemed like an awesome vet just from reading her bio, and that was confirmed at the appointment! She treated our dog's hot-spot right then and there, and also provided us medication to heal it. A pleasant experience compared to going to the vet, thanks Caitlin.

About

Dr. Wu Woods inherited her love of animals from her mother: she grew up in a house full of dogs and cats and raised some miniature hamsters, a chicken from the county fair, and even a baby robin. In high school, she shadowed a local vet and loved it! She knew becoming a vet was the career path for her. While attending college at the University of Pittsburgh, she became the vice president of Pre Vet Club, interned at a wildlife rehabilitation center, and worked as a vet assistant and then nurse at a local emergency and referral center. Tracy went on to attend vet school at the University of Pennsylvania, where she also gained experience working as an oncology and operating room nursing assistant and traveled to Thailand to provide vet care to dogs and cats in need. After extending her training with a small animal rotating internship at the Friendship Hospital for Animals in Washington, D.C., Tracy moved back to Philadelphia to work as an emergency veterinarian. She lives with her husband, Daniel, and their two lovable cats, Shemalee and Barbara. During her free time, Tracy loves to travel and experience new things—just as much as she loves curling up on the couch with her cats for a Netflix/Hulu binge session. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being outdoors, painting from time to time, and eating donuts and macarons.

Fun Fact
Tracy studied in Paris for four months while in college. And she also speaks Mandarin Chinese!

Tracy was a pleasure to work with. She was very friendly to our dog and extremely efficient throughout the checkup process. Would love for her to work with our dog again!

About

Dr. Liu’s interest in science started at a very young age, as she traveled with her family of physicians and research scientists from Sichuan, China to Japan and the United States. Her own fascination with medicine has always been with the non-human kind, ever since her grandparents lost a litter of puppies because their rural town lacked a veterinarian. Wanxin entered veterinary medicine to give families the kind of help her family lacked. Wanxin studied Animal and Avian Science at the University of Maryland and veterinary medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Her interests include emergency medicine, soft-tissue surgery, and small mammal and wildlife medicine. (She has even worked with the giant and red pandas in Chengdu, China.) She lives with her boyfriend, her dashing cat, Sven, and their beautiful leopard gecko, Ella. Outside of work, you will find Wanxin in the gym, exploring the great outdoors, reading, painting, or playing the piano. She also devotes some of her time to leash-training Sven—who is skeptical of this endeavor.   

Fun Fact
Wanxin is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. She also can ride a unicycle!

Our cat (Whiskers) loved Wanxin! So did we. She took her time and answered a ton of our questions. Thanks for the great experience!
