Kinga Gortel, Dermatology


Kinga has been in private dermatology referral practice since becoming board certified by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology in 1999. She graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995, and completed an internship, residency, and masters degree program at the University of Illinois. Before moving to Kelowna she spent seven years in a multi-dermatologist practice in southern California. Her affinity for outdoor pursuits such as mountain biking, rock climbing, and ski touring have made British Columbia a natural fit.

In addition to clinical practice, Kinga is an active teacher, lecturer, and writer. She is an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary medicine, and also enjoys teaching at the Atlantic Veterinary College and W.C.V.M. Her various publications include chapters on ear flushing and video otoscopy in Ettinger & Feldman’s Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine and Cote’s Clinical Veterinary Advisor.
