Meet the friendly veterinarians at Caring Hands Veterinary Hospital!
Education: Ross University
Dr. Khorsand grew up in Illinois where he spent most of his time outdoors fishing, boating, and hanging out with friends. He grew up with Golden Retrievers, hamsters, gerbils, and lizards. He always seemed to find and take animals that were dumped outside his neighborhood, which included a farm duck, cat and Saint Bernard.
After high school, Dr. Khorsand earned his Bachelors of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry at University of Illinois at Chicago. During this time he rescued a puppy he named Kaya. She changed his course in life from human medicine to veterinary medicine. Dr. Khorsand attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, where he graduated with highest honors.
During his time at Ross, he completed a veterinary externship in Costa Rica where he performed spays, neuters, and educated locals about the importance of animal welfare and well-being. He spent his clinical year at Colorado State University. Dr. Khorsand went on to practice veterinary medicine at Cornell University before starting his career at Caring Hands.
Dr. Khorsand enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but has a strong interest in Cardiology, Ultrasound, and Internal Medicine.
In his spare time, he enjoys snowboarding, fishing, hiking, camping, kayaking, and spending time with friends and family.
