Dr. Emily Montes comes from a family of doctors, but felt a pull toward veterinary medicine since she was just seven years old. She earned her undergrad at University of South Carolina, followed by her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at University of Georgia. After completing a small animal rotating internship and a surgical residency program at The Pet Specialists of Monterey, Dr. Montes joined Care Center. The consistency she practiced during residency has well prepared her for our team, as she focuses on patient care and the client experience. With a passion for wound and skin reconstruction surgeries, Dr. Montes consults on and treats all types of surgical cases; including lameness, orthopedic and soft tissue.
