 Dr. Rhonda Schulman, DVM, DACVIM received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1994 from the University of California, Davis. After veterinary school, she completed a one-year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at The University of Pennsylvania, followed by a residency in small animal internal medicine at The University of Illinois.
In 1999 she became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, practicing as a staff internist at a hospital in Arizona. In 2000, she returned to The University of Illinois, first as a Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor, and then as an Assistant Professor. She returned to Arizona in 2004 and joined us at ASG in November 2007. She has authored numerous book chapters and journal articles and has lectured nationally on a variety of internal medicine topics, most extensively in pulmonology and endocrinology.


Dr. Rich Pankowski spent the first 16 years of practice as an equine surgeon and racetrack practitioner, I joined my wife, Dr. Diane Craig, at Veterinary Surgical Specialists in Tustin on the business side of the practice as the Hospital Administrator. It’s been easier on my body and better for my 3 children. Over the past 20 years, VSS has grown 35-fold in revenue, opened an emergency department and added two dedicated partners, DRS Tony Cambridge, and Peter Sebestyen. Currently I believe we are one of the last privately owned specialty hospitals in Southern California. Diane and I have two daughters who will be juniors in veterinary school at UC Davis and UW Madison. You might say we have a lot of skin in the game.
