Personal Touch

-Sandie Tom from South Pasadena, CA
Pet Name: Brodie Bailey Bento

My experiences with the doctors and staff here at VCA Mission Animal Hospital has always been nothing but positive. The staff is always very courteous, helpful and caring. Dr. Oba is exceptional. She has provided excellent care for all 3 of my canine babies. She goes beyond the call of duty when providing care for my precious pets by giving me both her professional and personal opinions. She even goes out of her way to do extra research to give me options on how to approach any medical conditions. I've always told her that if she ever leaves this particular practice, I will follow her wherever she goes. I love her and my dogs love her. Even my aloof Bailey who isn't particularly fond of many people. I am so grateful that there is such a special place that I can bring my precious pups!

Dr. Oba and Her Staff

-Kathryn from Pasadena, CA

My pets and I have been with VCA Mission for approximately ten years, when Dr. Bowman transferred from VCA Arden in Glendale. Both she, and Dr. Oba, have consistently given my kitties top-notch medical care. Since Dr. Bowman moved north, Dr. Oba has been our only vet and she has done a wonderful job, both from a clinical perspective and also genuinely understanding that my pets are family and will receive the best care possible. I strongly believe that exceptional care must encompass both of these perspectives, and Dr. Oba is the vet that provides this. She is gentle and very professionally competent with my kitties and she communicates well, clearly and completely and patiently, whenever needed. The vet techs, office staff and everyone have been wonderful and we appreciate them so much. Thank you, Dr. Oba and staff!

The Best

-Marta Timar from Alhambra, CA
Pet Name: Francis and Clare and the kitties

Our furry family members have been patients at Mission Animal Hospital when I was still in elementary school and my parents paid the bills and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else! Starting way back with Dr. Dial to Drs. Oba and Park now, the techs, receptionists and groomers are wonderful and compassionate. You're the best and my kids and I appreciate all you do. Keep up the great work!

Always the Best

-Joe and Susan Rooks from San Marino, CA
Pet Name: Zoe, Molly, Oliver and Dexter

Susan and I have have brought our pets to VCA Mission since Approx. 2000. Dr. Oba is certainly the best, and the kindest Veterinarian we've know, and by far the most caring. Knowing a Doctor is only as good as the staff behind the counter. We'd like to give our personal thanks to Kris, Lynn, Michelle, Kristin, Valerie, Patty, Denise, Angel, Tania, Michelle in Grooming, Lorena, and all of the Techs and Kennel personnel that have helped us and treated us and our pets with kindness and caring. Keep up the great work! You are all greatly appreciated. Zoe, Molly, Oliver

Loving and Caring

-Peanut's family from Temple City, CA
Pet Name: Peanut

My name is Peanut and I'm a 6 year old chihuahua. VCA in Alhambra has always been the best, they treat me good with love and care! Dr. Park, Dr. Oba, Lorena and the rest of the staff are always very caring, loving and respectful to me and my mommy. I always get in sick trouble, but I know that my mommy and me rest at peace because they are always there to get me well soon and I can go back to play! Every time my family goes on vacation, they leave me in good hands here. They take me out to play feed me and love me! Thank you for your TLC!

Dr. Park

-Helen H. from Alhambra, CA
Pet Name: Frankie

I have a special needs dog who I love very much. I have been taking her to Dr. Park for a few years now and he has consistently proven his compassion and ability to manage my pet's needs. I call him whenever I have a concern and he always promptly calls me back and actually really listens and discusses my concerns with me. I believe my dog is alive today and doing better than could be expected because of his expertise. I would not go to another other vet (Dr. Oba is good too by the way). He understands and he cares about my dog and he works with me to help her. I have lived in many different states since I first got my dog and have dealt with many vets who were cold and indifferent. Dr. Park is a very involved, caring and experienced vet and I highly recommend him. He is a wonderful Vet and I am grateful for all that he has and continues to do for my precious pet.


-Phyllis Rapier from Alhambra, CA

Dr. Park at Mission Hospital is very kind and compassionate. I have been taking my animals to this facility for years and my sister also takes her animals there. I have observed Dr. Park's extreme kindness and concern for her animals who have had many health challenges. His concern for them is very apparent as well as his skill in meeting their complex needs. Dr. Oba is also very kind, but we have had more experience is with Dr. Park who is a hero in our household!!!!!

Frankie, Auggie and Wolfie (the dogs in our household) and their humans thank Dr. Park, Dr. Oba and the staff!

Thanks for excellent care

-Jeanne Needham from Alhambra, CA
Pet Name: Tammy

Dr. Chan Park has treated all 3 of my cats since June 2009 when I rescued them. I appreciate his thoughtful assessment of the health issues faced by the two oldest cats, especially the one who suffered from kidney failure. He also discussed the options if I had not been financially able to hospitalize the cat for the two days at the beginning of his treatment. This cat is alive and as well as can be expected today. Thanks to Dr. Park and the staff for their excellent care!

Dr. Park

-Jennifer E. Nidorf from Pasadena, CA
Pet Name: Frankie

I have a friend whose dogs have been very sick during the last couple of years and I often take them to see Dr. Park for her. I have been continually impressed with Dr. Park and his thoughtfulness. He listens to me and my friend and understands our concerns. He talks about options and treatment for the dogs, and helps us understand what we don't. If you call and leave a message, he calls back. He gets to know you and the animal(s) and cares for the animals. I think he is wonderful and I highly recommend him.
