Veterinarian: Lillian A. Michel, DVM

Dr. Michel knew as a toddler that she wanted to be an animal doctor as she would surround herself with stuffed animals and carefully treat all their imaginary ailments. As she got a little older she would enlist any family member or friend to bring their animal into "her office" where the examination, shots, and surgery would all take place in moments and happy healing pets would always exit.

There was never any question in her parents' mind where her passions lied and that she would become a veterinarian one day. Dr. Michel's passion is general internal medicine and surgery, she loves the daily interactions and challenges of general practice. Her clients and their four-legged family members well being are what drives her enthusiasm for the profession.

Dr. Michel has been a practicing veterinarian in Bakersfield for almost 30 years, she joined Coffee Road Animal Hospital in February of 2001. She received her bachelors of science in animal science from Cornell University in New York in 1983, and went on to do research at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell in the department of pharmacology for 2 years. She then returned to college and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell and graduated in 1989.

Dr. Michel moved to California after graduation in search of warmer weather, landed in Bakersfield, and set down roots. When not caring for pets at the office she is caring for her family (including all her fur babies). She enjoys doing crafts, reading, and hiking. One thing that might surprise you about Dr. Michel is that she has had Great Danes for over 40 years.

“I love having the opportunity to work at Coffee Road Animal Hospital and be part of a team that is dedicated to providing excellent veterinary care for our clients' pets. I look forward to meeting you and caring for your wonderful pet family.”
