Ioana has been practising in the UK for 12 years and joined our friendly and experienced team at the Corner Veterinary Clinic in 2015.
Prior to this Ioana has worked in practice across London since 2007 treating pets with her advanced knowledge of medicine cases and soft tissue surgery.
Ioana’s passion is internal medicine and surgery, leading to her currently studying to become a Certificate Holder in Small Animal Medicine. With her vast general practitioner knowledge over many years, this is quite an accolade!

Being an OV Practioner means Ioana is available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to small animal companions wanting to travel.
In her spare time she loves trekking, reading, meeting her friends and baking Cakes (to wind down after a busy day in theatre!). She has been living in Sutton for more than a decade with her family and rescue cat Yoko.

Ioana usually works Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Book your appointment to see wonderful Ioana.

Francesca joined our South London Vet Team in 2017 after a very impressive career journey so far.
Qualifying in 2013 from Bologna, Italy, when Francesca first arrived in the UK she practised as an intern at an extremely popular referral centre, just outside of London before moving on to work in a busy hospital in Berkshire.
Francesca is an extremely experienced General Practitioner and soft tissue surgeon, now expanding her vast talent to carrying out ultrasound diagnostics within the surgery.
Being an OV Practioner means Francesca is available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to small animal companions wanting to travel.
Being a huge small animal lover, she has a much loved 11 year old crossbreed called Jack.
When not in surgery Francesca likes abstract painting, dancing and surfing in her favourite location, Portugal!
