Diane Steinberg, DVM, DABVP (Feline)

Dr. Steinberg has always shared a special connection with cats and their owners. This sparked her to open The Cat Clinic of Orange County in 1988, where she practiced for 26 years. She has been a board certified feline specialist since 1995, and has always had a special interest in the management of disorders involving senior and geriatric cats. With a desire to restore quality feline medicine and client service to our community, Dr. Steinberg has returned as co-owner, Veterinarian, and Medical Director of the Cat Clinic.


Dr. Lauren Evans

Dr. Evans graduated from UCDavis, where she was a member of the Feline Club and foster coordinator for the Orphan Kitten Project. After vet school, she completed a surgery and emergency medicine internship at OSU. Having been raised in a “cat family” that always adopted orphan kittens, Dr. Evans knew she wanted to work in a cat-only environment dedicated to making each cat’s visit as comfortable as possible.


Tracy Neurauter, RVT

Tracy began working with Dr. Steinberg in 1999 and became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2004. She quickly fell in love with feline practice and has come to truly enjoy the relationships that people develop with cats. Tracy enjoys the community feeling of private veterinary practice. This is why she has returned to feline practice as co-owner and Hospital Administrator of the Cat Clinic.


Dr. Daniela Gestine

While attending veterinary school at UCDavis, Dr. Gestine was President of the Feline Club and member of the Orphan Kitten Project. She has always had a passion for feline medicine and enjoys being part of a team that shares that same passion. Dr. Gestine’s special interests are feline internal medicine, geriatric care, and preventative medicine.


Amber, RVT

Amber has been working in feline medicine since  2001, when she joined Dr. Steinberg's practice. She became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2007 and obtained a certificate in advanced veterinary imaging with a focus on abdominal and cardiac ultrasound in 2009. Although Amber loves all animals, she likes working with cats because they are often misunderstood in the veterinary community.

Ashley 1.jpg


Ashley joined Dr. Steinberg in feline practice at the young age of 17, and she's loved it ever since. She has come to appreciate the calm, quiet environment of feline practice and working with a team that shares the same goals of quality client and patient care. Ashley can be found in many areas of the clinic, but spends much of her time assisting clients in the reception area. 


Dawn has always loved animals of all kinds, and has been caring for the boarding cats of our community since 2006, when she began with the Cat Clinic of Orange County. She especially loves cats because they have "an aura of mystery with their own language". Dawn is a calming presence that cats really appreciate and joins the Cat Clinic as the primary caregiver of our feline-only luxury boarding service.


Johanna has been with Cat Clinic since 2016 and is currently working towards obtaining licensure as a Registered Veterinary Technician. She appreciates the unique personalities of cats, and really enjoys working with others that are truly passionate about what they do.


Kimberly was a veterinary student in the Philippines and is preparing to continue her veterinary education here in the US. She joined our team in August 2016 after volunteering at a cat sanctuary. Being a part of our team is special to her because "she gets to work with a wonderful, caring and friendly feline specialist and hospital staff"



Kelsey has been working in the veterinary field since 2008 and joined our team in March of 2017. In Kelsey's words, she "enjoys working with cats because they require patience and understanding to truly 'get them'".
