Dr. Lee attended the University of California, San Diego where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience. She then earned a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Sylvia Lee has a special interest in advanced orthopedics, multimodal approach to pain, and polytrauma (numerous broken bones, ruptured viscera, and wound care). Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is improving the quality of life in pets.
Throughout Dr. Lee’s veterinary career, she has always maintained a role in rescue work, ranging from foster care to offering surgeries with select rescues. When she is not caring for patients, she enjoys reading with her cat in her lap, exploring with her dogs, and running. She also enjoys trying to recreate her mom’s recipes but feels she is a better surgeon than a chef.
