About Dr. Mendise
Knowing who we are and what we stand for, one of our licensed veterinary technicians, Rebecca introduced us to Dr. Lisa Mendise, and we were immediately smitten. Although we were not interviewing, she was such a perfect fit, we had to make room for her, and we sure are glad we did! Among her many amazing characteristics, Dr. Lisa is intelligent, compassionate, dedicated and best of all, joyful with which to practice veterinary medicine.
Dr. Lisa attended North Carolina State University for undergrad and North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine for vet school. She is passionate about ophthalmology and internal medicine, and as a result, recommends these sites:
Dr. Lisa and her husband, James enjoy an extended family country compound that is the perfect setting for raising a family. Fur children include Aida (Himalayan), Twiglet (cat) and Sipsey (Rat Terrier). Her hobbies include baking (we love this!), running and spending time with her family.
As a child, Dr. Lisa always knew she wanted to work with animals, but she didn’t realize she wanted to be a veterinarian until her horse, Babes got sick. Watching the veterinarians work Babes through her major illness inspired Dr. Lisa to become a veterinarian. She wanted to be able to help clients and pets the way she was helped so many years ago, so Dr. Lisa is paying it forward by being part of our Care First Animal Hospital at Oberlin family. Dr. Lisa particularly enjoys hearing clients speak about the personalities of their pets.
