Dr. Mariel Gomez

Born in the Dominican Republic and raised for the most part of my life in Puerto Rico. I speak fluent Spanish and English. I have 3 other siblings one of them being 23 years younger than me. We have a really big family. I enjoy dancing to merengue, bachata and salsa music when I can find good company. I love drawing and painting when I'm feeling inspired. I did my undergraduate studies in the University of Puerto Rico in Carolina and San Juan, PR. In 2015, I received my DVM degree from LSU-SVM and have been working as a Veterinarian at Bayou South Animal Hospital since June/2015. I volunteer, once a week, to help spay and neuter adopted animals at Animal Services, Lake Charles. I am happy to have started my veterinary career in Lake Charles and excited to have joined the Bayou South family.
