Dr. Despina Hleiss

  • General Surgery


Dr. Despina was born and raised in Lebanon. She was raised in an environment at home and in her community to respect and adore all animals. Growing up, Dr. Despina had dogs, cats, and birds at home. It was her childhood dream to one day become a veterinarian in order to make a difference in the everyday lives of both pets and pet-parents.

In 2017 she graduated with a DVM degree from the Lebanese University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine. Subsequently, she went on to work at a a small animal veterinary practice for the next four years, where she worked emergencies and also saw regular consults during the day. Dr. Despina has three cats back home in Lebanon who are currently living with her dad. Dr. Despina speaks Arabic, English, and French.
