  • Dr. Ulrike Rudolf, DVM

    Medical Director

    Veterinary medicine, surgery, dentistry and nutrition counseling have improved the quality of life of countless animals and their human guardians. I am eternally grateful to be a part of this field as it grows in new medical scientific discoveries and returns to a deep rooted compassion for animals.

    After 15 years as a veterinarian I can honestly say that my enjoyment of coming to work and treating your animal companions has increased significantly. Due to this connection with my field I continuously seek education to improve the quality of care I give to my patients. Over the years I have added animal chiropractic and animal acupuncture to my general veterinary knowledge with great results. Most of my practice consists of traditional western medicine but on request and when current treatment is not enough adding these modalities may help significantly in keeping your animal companion feeling their best.

    Communication and calm, gentle treatment is of utmost importance at Pacific Heights Veterinary Clinic. Our goal for every appointment is for your pet to feel as comfortable as possible at our office and for you to go home satisfied with the information and care you and your pet have received.

    My educational background spans the Midwest (University of Wisconsin, Madison – Undergraduate Bachelor of Science) to the South West (University of Arizona – Graduate School) to the Caribbean (Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine – Doctor of Veterinary Medicine).

    When I am not at Pacific Heights I am spending time with my two wonderful children and husband and pet menagerie of 2 dogs, 3 cats, a parrot, a guinea pig, and 7 chickens!. For personal time I love glass blowing and kayaking.

  • Dr. Regina Lezano, DVM

    Doctor

    Working with animals has always been a passion of mine. My goal is to assist you in making informed decisions when it comes to the health and wellbeing of your pet. We aim to you use low stress handling techniques and positive reinforcement whenever possible to minimize in hospital anxiety and stress in hopes to facilitate a more positive experience next visit.

    I am originally from Honolulu and have attended University of Hawaii for my Bachelor’s in Animal Science. I’ve worked in medical research for a few years before pursuing Veterinary medicine. My Veterinary degree was completed at Massey University, New Zealand c/o 2018. I have completed various externships within the US and NZ with mixed animal and critical care hospitals. Veterinary medicine is constantly evolving, and I am always willing to pursue continuing education and development.

    When not at Pacific Heights Veterinary Hospital I enjoy reading, jigsaw puzzles, maintaining my indoor plants and fishes or cuddling with my cats. Sometimes I make it a point to stay active and enjoy the outdoors, even if it’s a simple walk in the park. I look forward to meeting you and your pets at Pacific Heights Veterinary Hospital.

  • Carla, LVT

    Manager

    From owning cats and dogs, to one very loud rooster and most every pet in between, I have developed a love and respect for all creatures. I got my first job at the age of 15 at a pet store, where I began my journey in pet husbandry. I developed a strong drive to learn everything I could about caring for and ensuring the health of every creature I was responsible for. After graduating high school, I attended Pima Medical Institute’s Veterinary Technician program and graduated with honors. I met Dr. Rudolf during my externship and have dedicated my career to helping her build a hospital and team who provides the upmost compassion and care for our patients and clients.  I especially enjoy my leadership role within the hospital, interacting with our clients and participating with surgery and dental health.

    When I am not at Pacific Heights, I enjoy spending time with my husband and pets, traveling, hiking and camping. I have two dogs and two cats. At Pacific Heights, you may occasionally see my dog Jamie or my black cat, Lorenzo.
