Get to know our Doctors!
Get to know the amazing Doctors at Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital and why we love what we do so much.
Born and raised in the South Bay, Dr. Anderson learned to love veterinary medicine at 13, working part-time at his local veterinary hospital. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology, his Master’s in Neuroscience, and Doctor in Veterinary Medicine, all at Washington State University. Following veterinary school, he completed a one-year rotating internship at East Bay Veterinary Specialists and Emergency in Walnut Creek, California, to further his knowledge and skills. Today, Dr. Anderson treats cats, dogs, rabbits, and pocket pets.
Dr. Anderson and his family live in Martinez and have enjoyed all the local community has to offer. During graduate school, Dr. Anderson met his wife, Jennifer, a veterinarian. They now have three daughters and two dogs to keep them busy.
Dr. Tutko was born and raised in Redmond, Washington. She earned her Bachelor’s in Veterinary Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University in 2005. Dr.Tutko was part of the Honors Veterinary Medicine program at Washington State, an accelerated program for exceptional students. After graduation, she completed a one-year rotating internship at California Animal Hospital in Los Angeles, CA.
What Dr.Tutko enjoys the most about veterinary medicine is being there for her patients from their challenging early years to their golden years. She loves solving the puzzles that pets and their humans bring to her and trying to meet the needs of each family. Since one of her main goals is for your pet to live its longest and happiest life, she is a huge proponent of preventative medicine and home dental care.
When she’s not in the office, Dr.Tutko can be found chasing her three daughters and husband (Dr. Anderson) around town and at various sports games! Dr. Tutko tries to practice what she advocates for patients – she’s a bit of a health nut. She enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, being outdoors, bragging about her kids, and occasionally tasting wine. Finally, Dr. Tutko enjoys running long distances and running marathons. She is always happy to chat about running (including running with your dog).
