Dr. Caroline Kim

DVM

Dr. Caroline Kim joined the staff at Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital in the fall of 2019. As a 7-year-old girl, she always had dreams of becoming a veterinarian. A native of San Francisco, Dr. Kim attended Lowell High School. During her summers, she volunteered for her very first job as a kennel assistant right here at Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital. She remembers working late hours cleaning cages and feeding the hospitalized patients back when Dr. McElroy owned the practice.
She went on to pursue her undergraduate career at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. In 1992 she graduated cum laude from the pre-medical program with a Bachelor’s degree in Science. She majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry. She returned to California to attend veterinary school at the University of California at Davis. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1996.

Dr. Kim has a particular interest in surgery. She completed a surgical externship at the Animal Medical Center in New York in 1995. She is certified in performing Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) cases and has a great interest in orthopedics. She also received training in laparoscopic surgery at the Oquendo Center in Las Vegas.

Before coming to Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Kim worked for almost 20 years in the Marina-Pacific Heights neighborhood. After a large corporation bought her hospital, she decided to look for another practice owned and operated by veterinarians. She came full circle when she met Dr. Singla and found her new work family at Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital. She believes that this practice has done a great job of keeping up its close ties to the local community. It has a warm, neighborhood feel while maintaining a high quality of service, along with futuristic upgrades in technology.

Dr. Kim is a member of the California Veterinary Medical Association, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and is APHIS certified. When she is not caring for her patients, Dr. Kim spends time with her human family and her two orange cats at her home in San Francisco.

Dr. Mukul Padalkar

BVSc & AH, MVSc

Dr. MP always wanted to become a veterinarian and her interest solidified when she volunteered as a kid at Pet Aid, a small animal clinic in Pune, India- her hometown.
She graduated from Bombay Veterinary College, India in 2010 and earned a Masters degree in Veterinary Medicine in 2012. She was a general practitioner in India for 5 years, where she also worked at a first of its kind diagnostic lab and performed ultrasound scans. She then completed a year long rotating internship at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2018. Following the ECFVG certification she joined the Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital family in July 2020. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, California Veterinary Medical Association and the Veterinary Ultrasound Society of American College of Veterinary Radiology.

What Dr. MP finds most rewarding is being able to make a difference for her patients and their families; whether it’s a wellness exam for newly adopted pup/kitten, or a diagnostic/treatment plan for a pet who has suddenly become sick or providing palliative care for a geriatric one.

She enjoys working at Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital because it allows her to collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds while pursuing her professional interests of diagnostic imaging, emergency medicine and surgery.

In her free time, she indulges in various artistic ventures or explores the outdoors with her husband.
