We would like to introduce our team

Dr. Robyn Herman

Veterinarian and Practice Owner

Dr. Herman graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology. This Foundation gives her the ability to understand how bacteria and viruses can cause disease and affect various organ systems of the body. After graduating with a Doctorate from the Colorado State Veterinary Program, she moved to California. Her goal was to have her own practice and she found the same close community feeling here in Patterson that she had grown up in a small town in Colorado. In 2004 she purchased Patterson Vet Hospital. Her commitment to continuing her education has led to her becoming certified in both Acupuncture and Medical Laser Therapy. This integrative medical discipline has allowed her to provide additional approaches to pain management and healing beyond traditional drugs and surgery. In 2018, she committed the practice to become a certified Fear Free environment, and all the staff is trained and certified in Fear Free protocols.

Her husband Frank is also a microbiologist and works at Old River Diagnostics and is just as crazy of an animal lover as she is. She has a wonderful son and a beautiful granddaughter. Her fur family includes five German Shepherds, Khan, Indy,  Anka, Jinn and Rhys. All 5 rotate days at the hospital with her, visiting and taking their roles as ambassadors to the breed seriously (the staff are saints). As you can see, her life revolves around her pets and her family both at home and at the hospital. She couldn't imagine a better way to live her life than by working for the health and welfare of animals.
