Georgette Goorchenko, DVM, MS, DACVR

Dr. Georgette Goorchenko is a 2010 graduate of UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. After an equine internship at Pioneer Equine and time in private practice, she returned to UC Davis to complete a two-year Large Animal Ultrasound Fellowship. Following this, Dr. Goorchenko completed a Diagnostic Imaging Residency at Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. During her residency, she developed an interest in small animal musculoskeletal imaging which allowed her to apply her previous equine musculoskeletal ultrasound training to canines and felines.

Dr. Goorchenko works as both a small animal and equine teleradiologist and owns her own mobile ultrasound company. She continues to teach small animal and equine abdominal and musculoskeletal ultrasound to veterinarians across the country.
