Lenore Mohammadian, DVM, MSpVM
Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Radiology
Dr. Mohammadian is the chief of radiology at CVS. Before joining CVS, Dr. Mohammadian completed her residency in Diagnostic Radiology and a Master’s in Specialized Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University. She worked in general practice before her residency, and also completed a rotating internship in a small animal medicine and surgery at the Emergency Animal Hospital and Referral Center in San Diego.
Dr. Mohammadian enjoys the art of veterinary medicine, and she found her passion with radiology. As a radiologist, she gets to use technology to see inside of patients non-invasively. A picture can say many time more than 1000 words, and she can review radiographs (X-rays), Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), as well as perform an ultrasound and fluoroscopic procedures. Her special interests are in cancer imaging and minimally invasive biopsy techniques. Working with a talented group of doctors at CVS allows Dr. Mohammadian to be an integral part our patient care.
Dr. Mohammadian has been awarded the Merck Award, Gamma Sigma Delta, Agricultural Honors Society, Phi Zeta, National Veterinary Honors Society, P. Philip Levine Prize in Avian Medicine and Phi Beta Kappa.
Dr. Mohammadian has two small breed dogs, a miniature poodle mix Lola from the Escondido Humane Shelter and a terrier mutt named Aksel who was found running along the freeway. A house would not feel like a home to her without a cat, and she has a one-eyed Persian cat Ember who is pure sweetness and was a rescue from the 2007 wildfires. Besides the furry ones, Dr. Mohammadian has had an aquarium of African cichlids for nearly 20 years and a koi pond with some beautiful fish as well as a red eared slider rescued from a trailer park. Most of all, she enjoys time with my family, friends, animals, a book and a glass (or 2) of wine.
