Dr. Jorge Barrera
Dr. Jorge Barrera’s joy as a child was spending time on his family’s ranch in El Salvador, Central America. He knew since he was in junior high he wanted to help animals. While his Dad’s family were city-dwellers, his Mom’s extended family owned the ranch where he spent his free time. He went to Veterinary school at the Center University Studies in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He graduated in 1984 before traveling to California in 1985 where he passed all medical boards. He is a member of American Veterinary Association and California Veterinary Association, in good standing. He is licensed to practice in California, Oregon and Wisconsin. Dr. Barerra strives to practice the best medicine possible in a compassionate way.
After owning his own practice for many years he has joined the team at Affordable Animal Hospital Silver Lake, taking great pride in his assistance with the health care of small animals. He excels at soft tissue surgery and believes strongly in Preventative Medicine as the foremost method in keeping pets healthy. He has two dogs and a cat of his own, Samsung, Sofi and Yoda.
