Aya Iwai, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


Dr. Iwai joined us in 2010 after moving back to Seattle from the Midwest. She lives with a border-collie ("Clover"), two cats ("Tempit" and "Phinney") and human critters (her husband, daughter, and identical twin boys). In the rare event that she has "free time," she likes to hike, ski, travel, read short stories, and listen to "Radiolab."

Her special veterinary interests include internal medicine, ophthalmology, soft tissue surgery, and radiology.

She received her college degree from the University of Chicago, and her veterinary degree from the University of Illinois. After veterinary school, she completed a one-year rotating small animal internship at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego.
