Veterinary Surgeon

Viraf

Viraf joins us from Melbourne, Australia after coming to the UK in 2017, where he began working in practice in Berkshire, before joining our permanent Vet Team here in London.
Initially unsure whether to study human or animal medicine, thankfully for us Viraf’s acute fondness for small furry companions won through and he graduated from Melbourne University in 2015.
With a keen interest in ultrasound, neurology and soft tissue surgery, Viraf is looking forward to continuing to grow his surgical experience over the next few years. Viraf puts his long standing client relationships high on the list of what makes him a great vet!
When not in surgery Viraf enjoys playing ice hockey, reading and painting landscapes and mountains from his travels.

Viraf usually works on Monday, Wednesday and Friday! Book your appointment to see wonderful Viraf!
