COVID UPDATE: Click the button below for an update on how our protocols have and will change now that June 15th has rolled around!
Who We Are
We are a privately owned, progressive veterinary ophthalmology practice offering comprehensive evaluations, advanced diagnostics (ERG, Gonioscopy, Ocular Ultrasound, etc.) and both medical and surgical therapies (Ciliary Body Ablation, Cryoepilation, Phacoemulsfications, etc.) for our patients. Established in 2013, Integrative Ophthalmology for Pets started out by renting space from various general practice animal clinics in order to have room for exams. As our clientele grew, so did our company. We have moved from renting exam rooms to having our own location near the heart of the Mid-Wilshire district.
Our services include a wide range of integrative therapies, mixing Eastern and Western medical recommendations for our patients. We also promote general ocular wellness and food therapy based on Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
Our Mission Statement
To create a balanced and preventative ocular health care plan based on a thorough ophthalmic examination and recognition of each patient as a whole and unique individual.
We intend to reinforce our commitment daily by:
- Honoring the relationship between our clients and their pets
- Providing the highest quality ophthalmic care and actively engaging clients in their pet’s health care treatment plan
- Promoting education about veterinary ophthalmology and preventative care
- Integrating conventional (‘Western’) and complementary (‘Eastern’) therapies when indicated and appropriate
- Cultivating a positive atmosphere and always maintaining our integrity
After we had Carlton for only 6 weeks he developed cherry eye. Not knowing what to do we took him to a vet recommended by his breeder in Orange County. To make a very long story short he had two failed cherry eye surgical procedures, we were quite concerned. Decided to do my own research online and eventually found Dr. Park.I chose not to write a Yelp review right away as I wanted to be 100% certain that Carlton was perfect. Dr. Park examined him a couple of times, removed sutures in place by the previous vet. She recommended a surgical procedure she was confident would work. Reality is the procedure was 100% successful and our baby Carlton has perfect beautiful eyes today. We could not be more satisfied.These folks treat your pet with love and care. This is a wonderful place to go should you unfortunately ever need a veterinary ophthalmologist. I strongly recommend Dr. Park. You won't find better.Jay A.12/04/2018
I had previously written a review of Dr. Park and Integrative Opthamology But I needed to edit it and Yelp does not allow you to edit your reviews once they are posted. My last review was written in March of 2018, and I gave Dr. Park and her team 5-stars then, and I continue to give them 5 stars. When it comes to eyes, you have to go to the best, which is why my Daisy is still a patient there. Daisy has cataracts, and unfortunately they have only gotten worse, despite the drops we've been using. I was hoping to not have to consider surgery but I can see that Dr. Park believes this is the best option. I thought she did the surgeries herself, but instead gave me the names of surgeons in the area, I believe she WILL be doing surgeries in the future so if we can wait, we will. Her office is very modern, and you can tell she keeps abreast of the newest technologies and equipment available. I believe she also keeps up with new research all of the time. She and her staff are so good with my dog, who is afraid of everyone, including her own shadow. They spoke to her in a soft voice and handled her gently. This means the world to me!She is pricey, but she is a specialist, and deserving of her rates. lf you want the best for your dog, you've come to the right place!Mitzi S.6/01/2019
My dog came in back in February. The office is clean, staff were all very nice and attentive. Dr. Park did the consultation exam, was given the option to treat his eye or remove it, considering he was blind and there was no saving any eyesight. I chose to have the globe removed. They do operations on Wednesday's only, I was nervous for him but they were very reassuring, he got to go home the same day, it does look bruised after surgery. After a week he was back to normal and after 2 weeks bruising went away. It had healed very good. Dr. Park did a fabulous job. If anybody ever has issues with their pets eyes, I recommend going here.Monika G.3/31/2020
Last week, we decided to see an ophthalmologist for our one-year old kitten Leo, who had been possibly having some kind of eye infection and cloudy discharge from his left eye on and off since we adopted him last summer. Our primary veterinarian recommended 3 ophthalmologists and we chose Integrative Ophthalmology For Pets. I'm soooo glad we did!!! During the pandemic of COVID-19 and stay-at-home order, they are taking meticulous safety measures for everyone! The ophthalmologist who examined Leo's eye was Dr. Jennifer Sheahan. I am extremely picky and judgemental when it comes to a veterinarian because I only want the very best for my baby. But trust me, SHE IS THE VERY BEST. Period. [...Long version...] Dr. Sheahan explained everything in such an easy way for me to understand, answered all my questions, and offered treatment options and medications, but never once did she pressure me to do anything unnecessary. I greatly appreciated her straight-forwardness and thoughtfulness. She offered professional opinions and respected my decisions as well. After a few minutes of phone conversation, I was 100% convinced that Leo and I had met a super ophthalmologist! Along with Leo's meditations, I received the comprehensive "Medication Sheet" with detailed instructions and preventative care measures! Not only that, Dr. Sheahan kindly sent me such an incredibly detailed "Visit Summary" which consisted of diagnostics, assessment, additional information, food therapy options and treatment plans -- ALL PERSONALIZED FOR LEO!!! These pages of medical reports carefully and thoroughly written by Dr. Sheahan just blew my mind... I had never, ever received anything like this from any other veterinarian! Not only that (again), Dr. Sheahan kindly called me a few days later and asked me how Leo was doing! She had such a heart-warming, kind, personable conversation with me about Leo, and I truly appreciated it. She has a lot other patients but her professionalism and kindness made me feel as if Leo was her only special patient! Thank you very much Dr. Sheahan, for such a loving, professional care for our kitten Leo. He is doing better and we will see you in 2 weeks for checkup! :)Yuki N.5/04/2020
I was blessed to find Dr. Park for my dog's eye problem. She was so knowledgeable, kind and professional. I would recommend her to anyone needing an expert!Candace Culp1/20/2020
Dr. Park did an amazing job helping me and my dog through a very difficult time. I could not recommend her highly enough. I trust her completely with all my animal ophthalmology needs. Dr. Park has an incredibly calming way with the animals. My dog can be difficult. She is very stubborn and lets people know when she doesn't like something. But Dr. Park handled her better than any vet ever has in her nearly 14 years of life.Dr. Park also truly cares about her patients, and it makes such a difference. I have a phobia of eye related injuries and issues. And Dr. Park was incredibly helpful and patient as we dealt with my dog's serious glaucoma and eventual eye removal. She was always available by text, email and phone. She checked in on us regularly. She made herself completely available. I always felt that she was doing her very best for us and that she was with us every step of the way.Finally, it goes without saying, but Dr. Park is an incredibly skilled ophthalmologist. I always felt that she knew exactly what to do next to try to save my dog's vision and eye. She took excellent care of my dog throughout the long process of dealing with her glaucoma.I hope you won't need ophthalmology services for your animal, but if you do, Dr. Park is person to see.Jessica L.3/15/2016
The staff here treated my dog with such care and kindness. Dr. Park also has a fun and kind personality, you can tell that she truly loves her job. She made everything easy for me to understand and explained the medications perfectly. I also appreciate the new COVID-19 procedures which included social distancing, wearing facemasks, contactless pay, and curbside pick up. Although it's a bit pricey, it is well worth it for the care your pet receives. My overall experience was great and I had no problems at all.Izzy V.7/01/2020
Dr. Park is wonderful, extremely caring, and amazing at what she does. My dog, Jake, has been to her twice. Once for preventive and a second time because he had green stuff coming out his one eye. I highly recommend going to see her for the wellness preventive exam. It's very decently priced and she goes over the eyes and how to take care of them (and she foresees any future problems-- so it actually saves you money in the long run.)Both times, Dr. Park spends the time to answer all my questions and she is very thorough. She has a background in Eastern medicine so she gives amazing food advice as well.A S.4/26/2016
