Caring, Professional, Unrivalled

At Corner Vets our professional team of vets and nurses care passionately about animals and treat every patient as a sentient being. Every member of our team is hand selected for their compassion and ability to go above and beyond for our clients. They have the skills to provide a timely diagnosis and first-class veterinary treatment.


Veterinary Surgeon


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.


Veterinary Surgeon


Alice joined our brilliant London team in the summer of 2020 after qualifying 7 years ago with a distinction in Veterinary Science from Liverpool University. Having previously worked as a Senior Vet in a surgery regularly featuring on British TV, Alice’s vast first opinion surgery experience and gentle knowledgeable manner with the pets she treats has made her a hugely popular addition to our Team.

Alice excels in both internal medicine and soft tissue surgery and can often be found in theatre carrying out laparoscopic surgery when she’s working in our flagship hospital!

Away from our popular surgeries Alice loves to travel, sail, climb and wind down by listening to music.
