Dr. Kelly Fishman, DVM, CVA is part of the Redwood City Physical Rehabilitation team. Kelly has a background in Environmental Science and law. She eventually embraced a very new career as a veterinary nurse, working for a small East Bay clinic, and eventually landed at UC San Francisco, where she worked as a neurosurgery research associate and veterinary nurse. Kelly earned her DVM at Ross University in St. Kitts, WI. She got involved in Physical Rehabilitation from the pain management perspective and completed her Integrative Medicine internship at the University of Florida. While at the University of Florida, she developed an interest in Chinese herbs and how they can be used in veterinary care.
Kelly’s approach is a blend of Western and Eastern veterinary treatments. She has focused her Physical Rehabilitation work on orthopedic, neurologic and post-surgery cases and using manual therapy techniques to treat pets. She is interested in expanding her pain management offerings to include joint injections such as Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments and other modalities.
