Dr. Lisa Yung

Education: North Carolina State University

Dr. Lisa Yung, received her doctoral degree in Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University in 2005. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in chemistry, Dr. Yung chose to pursue veterinary medicine for the intellectual challenges of veterinary medicine, coupled with the rewards of helping both pets and their people.

After NCSU, she moved to the Portland Metro area to take advantage of the large variety of outdoor activities available in the Pacific Northwest. Her clinical interests include internal medicine, preventative and geriatric care, and dentistry. She takes on the challenges that difficult medical and surgical cases can present, and works diligently with her patient’s families during the entire diagnostic and treatment process.

In her spare time, Dr. Yung, her husband, and her child generally spend weekends hiking and spending time outdoors with their dog KoB (an American Eskimo – thank you, Nancy, for this amazing pup). Snow skiing, traveling, and taking advantage of Portland’s culinary scene also helps fill the off-clinic agenda. Dr. Yung also has three domestic short-haired cats at home: Nigel, Neil, and Ruth. The kitties don’t get to go hiking but do a good job of guarding the house when people and dogs are gone.

Tell us a little-known fact about you!
I was born in China but moved to the deep South when I was three. I grew up in the Mississippi Delta but went to North Carolina for university. So no wonder sweet tea and fried okra are two of my favorite things…
