But this LA-based mother-of-three is no ordinary doc. Her patients are furry, feathery and scaly. Dr. Nieto is a veterinarian who works at an emergency and critical care facility for animals.

Dr. Stella de la Vega is an urgent care physician practicing in Long Beach, California who transitioned to Family Medicine from Surgery in search for more work-life balance. It feels like there's not much she can't do, or won't at least try, which might be the most impressive thing about her.
