Dr. L. Noelani Reinker is board-certified in veterinary internal medicine. She grew up on O’ahu in Hawaii and has always been passionate about animals—as a child she had a menagerie that consisted of fresh and saltwater fish (and a lobster), mice, birds, rabbits, cats, dogs, a lizard, and a horse. She has lived all over the country including Massachusetts (where she pursued her undergraduate studies), Colorado, Washington state, Michigan, and Minnesota. She completed her residency at the University of Minnesota and moved to Northern California in 2011 to “defrost.”
Noelani’s veterinary passion is gastroenterology, with endocrinology as a close second. In her free time, she loves to backpack, SCUBA, and compete in triathlons. Her current pets include a cat and a 90-year old desert tortoise.
