Joseph DelVecchio, DVM, Medical Director
Dr. Joseph DelVecchio earned his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Georgia in 2006 and spent the next 7 years as a small animal practitioner in southern Massachusetts before moving to Southern California to join the staff at Parkview.
He enjoys helping owners provide enriching environments and effective preventive care for their pets, with a focus on maintaining the best possible quality of life for their four-legged friends.
In addition to working with dogs and cats, Dr. DelVecchio enjoys occasionally helping out with less traditional pets, including ferrets and reptiles.
When not at Parkview, Dr. DelVecchio spends his time reading, cooking, touring museums and trying to keep his cockeyed cat, Tony, out of trouble. He enjoys limited success with that last one.
Mariko Kramer, DVM
Dr. Mariko Kramer earned her Doctorate of Veterinary medicine from the University of California Davis in 2009. She then continued her education in internal medicine, surgery, oncology, and emergency medicine through an internship at Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group (VMSG) in Ventura.
Dr. Kramer has an interest in internal medicine and helping pet parents care for their pets with acute and chronic diseases. Preventative care and educating pet parents are very important to Dr. Kramer and allows her to work as a team with clients to provide the best care possible for their loved ones.
When she is not helping pets at Parkview, Dr. Kramer likes to relax with her family, watch movies, hike, and camp. Her and her family have one amazing furry child, Riley the German Shepherd mix that she adopted while in vet school. Riley’s senior status helps her understand the special needs of senior pets and the importance of maintaining a good quality of life for them.

Dr. Coates is a certified trainer in Small Animal Restraint & Handling and Small Animal CPR, through Basic Animal Rescue Training, a program that teaches firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and other first responders how to capture, restrain, assess, and perform first aid on animals they encounter in the course of their duties.

After graduation, he practiced small animal medicine in Chicago for 3 years before moving to Southern California in 2018. As a third-generation veterinarian, Dr. Fedyniak learned compassion and care for animals from a very early age. Throughout his lifetime, he has had the privilege of working with interesting creatures such as lions and tigers, and has even performed surgery on a fish! What Dr. Fedyniak enjoys most about general practice is the opportunity to be involved in every aspect of your pet's health from preventative care to medicine and surgery. Dr. Fedyniak enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, Jessie, their two dogs, Koda and Wall-E, ball python, Kaa, and horse, Bourbon. He looks forward to exploring all of the outdoor activities Southern California has to offer as well as spending free time working on art and photography.
