Dr. Yu-Tin Lee
Dr. Yu-Tin Lee was born in Taiwan, where she lived until the eighth grade when her family moved to the US. After spending the first year in cold Michigan, she moved to sunny California and fell in love with the Bay Area. After high school, Dr. Lee attended UC Davis and graduated with honors with a major in biochemistry and a minor in animal biology. Her original goal was to become a physician, however, that goal was quickly changed after adopting her favorite dog in the world, Fido, a terrier mix. While taking care of Fido, she realized that her true passion was for veterinary medicine. After graduating from UC Davis, Dr. Lee moved to Michigan to attend veterinary medical school at Michigan State University. She was involved in several organizations such as secretary of Student Chapter of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (SVECCS) and member of the Student Chapter of American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA). Dr. Lee graduated with honors in 2005 and was inducted to Phi Zeta Veterinary Honors Society. After graduation, Dr. Lee was proudly accepted into a rotating internship in small animal medicine at Tufts University, School of Veterinary Medicine. During the one-year training program, she rotated through a variety of specialty fields such as emergency and critical care, internal medicine, neurology, surgery, and ophthalmology, and she gained valuable experiences. She is also fluent in both Mandarin Chinese and English. In 2006, Dr. Lee was ecstatic to finally move back to the sunny Bay Area and work as a clinician at the Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital.
Dr. Lee and her husband have three energetic boys and an active little dog name Skittles. Their household is never quiet and luckily there is a large yard for the boys and Skittles to run out their energy. Skittles loves coming to work with Dr. Lee and enjoys playing with other doggy "coworkers" during a long work day.
