She studied molecular biology at Yale University and received her veterinary degree from Cornell University. Her professional interests include surgery, dentistry, and geriatric medicine. Dr. Kang also enjoys working with animal shelters and underserved communities. Dr. Kang has two adorable guinea pigs, Machu and Picchu, and she hopes to adopt a dog soon.

Dr. Kevin Nagel

Dr. Kevin Nagel

Dr.Kevin Nagel grew up in upstate New York and always had dreams of winter sunshine. He attended Cornell University for both his undergrad and veterinary degrees and graduated with his DVM in 2009. He promptly moved out the Bay Area where he worked for a year on the coast before coming to LAVC in San Jose. He has broad professional interests, including general small animal (dog and cat) medicine and surgery, eye issues, clinical pathology (looking at stuff under microscopes) and dentistry. He does his best to encourage the human-animal bond and believes in LAVC's practice of having pet owners be an integral part of making decisions.

Dr. Nagel is married and has an old dog (Meg) and an adult cat (Darwin). He enjoys brewing his own beer, hiking, camping, reading James Michener books and watching such varied TV shows as Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, and Louie.
