Dr. Ruth Doe has always had a passion for animals and graduated from UC Davis. She has owned Nob Hill Cat Clinic since Fall of 1995. In her free time, she enjoys skiing, mountain biking and riding her horses.


Rachel B joined us in 2015. She has been in the veterinary field for many years and loves kitties! She has one son and has a newborn baby girl! She enjoys fine cuisine (so umami!) and classic orchestrals. She often goes kayaking in Monterey Bay, visiting the otters and sea lions! Her personality shines through brightly and she can charm the pants off as horse.

Michelle moved to San Francisco from the Chicago area in 2016, and joined us pursuing her career in animal care. She absolutely adores the fluffy friends that visit the clinic. She was heartbroken when she had to leave her kitties in Chicago, but she finds solace with our patients. She also loves pet sitting! Any chance to snuggle a fluff!  In her spare time she volunteers at Marine Mammal Center helping to rehabilitate seals and sea lions.


Celestina has been in veterinary medicine for 6 years - and loves working with animals! She's been with us since 2016. When she's not working, she's learning to cook new dishes and spending time with her new born daughter Zoë. She will soon become an RVT after many long years of anticipation. 

Pretty Robin Periwinkle!

Lisa is our newest hire! With many years of experience in the veterinary world, we are very lucky to have her calming influence for our patients.


Kaitlin  is a recent college graduate hoping to pursue a career in medicine. She loves animals of all shapes and sizes, but has a special place in her heart for critters of the feline persuasion. She enjoys writing, noodling, skiing and teaching her two cats new tricks. She brings her exceptional kitty bribery skills to work with her each day.


Joe started in the veterinary field years ago at PETS Emergency in Berkeley. Coming from emergency to general practice is quite the change, but he enjoys the opportunity to connect with clients in a different setting, and to develop those relationships with both the cats and the people they bring in. 


My name is Rachael Gonzalez-Binet! I am a 43 year old Mama of 4 children and have been an animal lover my whole life! After having 4 kids I decided it was time for a change of pace, so I went back to where I always had my secret aspirations, ANIMALS! I began nearly a year ago at an ER Hospital for all animals and learned very quickly how to become a valuable asset to any Vet Care team.

My time at Nob Hill Cat Clinic has been short however I have gained so much experience and knowledge from my co-workers and doctors that I have made this my new forever “home” away from home!

I have two kitties, one a black polydactyl Tuxedo cat named D.C. (Darn Cat) & Hobbes, an orange tabby. D.C. has a personality of her own and likes things her way or the highway! Hobbes is a chilled out dude who lets everything roll off his shoulders! 


Hi! My name is Ninah! I’ve worked in the Veterinary Field (in Santa Cruz) for 8 years (mostly in Specialty and ER Care). In 2014 I took a break to be a Human Nurse, but fell back into the Animal World after moving back to S.F. last year. I’m so happy to have joined Nob Hill Cat Clinic. The Dr.’s are great and the Nurses are amazing. Cats are so incredible with their personalities, we love all of them!

He’s been working as a technician at Nob Hill Cat Clinic since 2015; now he’s also office manager. In his spare time, he enjoys watching bad movies with his wife, reading, leatherworking, sewing, medieval/fantasy reenactment, and generally geeking out.
