Dr. Takeshi Doi, DVM
Dr. Doi graduated from veterinary college and obtained his original veterinary license in Japan. Soon after graduation, he started working in a small animal hospital in Shizuoka, Japan where he worked both day-time and weekly overnight emergency shifts. He gained excellent learning opportunities at that hospital since he worked one-on-one with veterinary specialists. In addition, the hospital was hosting monthly continuing education seminars by inviting renowned specialists in a variety of Japanese veterinary fields. He was able to obtain personal consultations with complicated cases with the specialists and furthered his exposure to advanced veterinary medicine. Dr. Doi was especially interested in and learned Radiology, Cardiology and Oncology, particularly Chemotherapy. He decided to learn more advanced medicine in the U.S. and attended the veterinary continuing education programs at the Veterinary Colleges of Oklahoma State University, Kansas State University, and Purdue University. He spent 1-2 years at each university and finished his U.S. coursework at Kansas State University. He passed the veterinary licensure exam (NAVLE) and moved to California to join Banfield Pet Hospital in the Inland Empire in 2009. In 2017, he transferred to the Hawthorne location and has been there full time since. Dr. Doi spends his free time playing fitness video games, eating out at ramen restaurants in the area, and attending veterinary educational events. There are so many ramen restaurants he cannot finish trying them all out! He loves the LA area including the beautiful hiking in Palos Verdes and all of the friendly people walking their lovely dogs along those trails. He also loves the cultural diversity of LA and taking care of a variety of adorable pets here!!
