  • Dr. Rachel Sarkez

    Doctor

    Dr. Sarkez has four cats and a naughty puggle named Alby who constantly reminds her of the importance of child proof locks on trash cans. Growing up in Oregon, she raised and showed Pygmy goats and they still hold a very dear place in her heart. Rachel is an Oregon State Veterinary Medicine graduate but also studied Spanish and theater. She strongly believes that at least once in their lives everyone, who can, should travel abroad and eat craft macaroni and cheese with ketchup. In her spare time, she enjoys watching scary movies and playing Cranium with her husband and friends. She is very happy to have landed here at South Bay and looks forward to helping her patients and their owners live a better-quality life.

Dr. Hegedus is a self-professed crazy Great Dane lady and has two of her own, Pepper, an 8-year-old black male, and Hazel, a two-year-old blue female. Dr. Hegedus likes to spend her free time gardening, cooking delicious meals, and reading cheesy animal-centric mystery novels.  She plans to add chickens to her gaggle of animals, which includes two snakes and a blue-tongued skink. Dr. Hegedus is a graduate of North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine where she first developed her ongoing passion for veterinary behavior and low-stress handling techniques.
