Burlingame Veterinarians

Burlingame, CA VeterinarianLaszlo Gyulassy, DVM, Owner

Dr. Gyulassy grew up in Oakland, California and earned his bachelor's degree in integrative biology and molecular/cell biology from the University of California, Berkeley. He earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine, where he was the recipient of the Chancellor's and Regents Scholarship, Roy Grant Scholarship, George H Hart Scholarship, and the Best Buddy Award. Following veterinary school, Dr. Gyulassy interned at VCA West LA Animal Hospital where he learned important emergency skills including ultrasound, chest tube placement, pericardial tap and critical patient care.

"Dr. Laszlo Hites, my uncle and a physician in San Leandro, pointed out that veterinary medicine would be a good fit, melding science, people, and pets into one career," Dr. Gyulassy recalls. "Intrigued, I signed up for a summer volunteer job at Campus Veterinary Clinic in Berkeley, under Dr. Charles Berger. He was an incredible veterinarian, and I loved working at Campus Veterinary Clinic. Thereafter, I knew with certainty that veterinary medicine was the right career for me."

Passionate about providing the best general practice dental services on the peninsula, Dr. Gyulassy is constantly expanding his knowledge and skills through meetings, webinars, wet labs, and a number of veterinary publications and websites. He is a member of the San Francisco Veterinary Medical Association, the Peninsula Veterinary Medical Association, the California Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Dr. Gyulassy and his wife Stefanie are expecting their first child in December. Together, they care for a cat named Ruby that he describes as the "princess of the household." In his spare time, Dr. Gyulassy enjoys hiking, backpacking, skiing, kayaking, travel and soccer.

Burlingame, CA VeterinarianMarilyn Frank, DVM, MS

Originally from Clearwater, Florida, Dr. Marilyn Frank recalls that animals were always a big part of her life, from the snakes, frogs and toads that filled a creek near her home to rabbits, armadillos, and owls, to horses that she rode through the palmetto bushes.

Dr. Frank earned her bachelor's degree in biology from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. While there, she was a research assistant for a professor studying the behavior of wild versus domestic canines. She credits her time spent caring for the coyotes, wolves, beagles and malamutes with motivating her to become a veterinarian. She earned a Master's degree in reproductive physiology at the University of Florida, and earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine.

A member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Frank's professional interests include internal medicine, dentistry, dermatology and preventive medicine. Although she finds many aspects of veterinary medicine greatly rewarding, Dr. Frank says, "The ultimate satisfaction comes from interacting with our clients who are intelligent and compassionate pet owners that want only the best for their pets and trust us with their care."

Dr. Frank is married to Martin Goldstein, a business consultant in biotechnology. Together they have two grown children, Matthew and Maggie, and a red Standard Poodle named Mays. Outside work, Dr. Frank enjoys biking, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking and spending time with her family.

Luann Aki, DVM

Dr. Luann Aki was born and raised in a close knit and kind community in Hilo, Hawaii, where with her poi dog, Fluffy, and her racing frogs raised from eggs she learned a love of all creatures.

After graduating from Hilo High School, Dr. Aki went on to earn a degree in Natural Sciences at Lewis and Clark College in Oregon. She worked in biotechnology in Seattle for 5 years (where she met and married her husband) and subsequently earned her degree in Veterinary Medicine from Colorodo State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Dr. Aki has been practicing in the Bay Area since 1996 and is happy to bring her holistic approach to Camino Real Pet Clinic. "I derive great satisfaction in collaborating with owners to find ways to keep their pets the happiest and healthiest they can be at every stage of life."

When not practicing, Dr. Aki spends as much time in the ocean as possible, snorkeling, swimming, and scuba diving - preferably in warm water. She also enjoys running, yoga, and rock climbing. Dr. Aki lives with her 15 year old daughter, her husband, and 2 poodle looking stray dogs who love nothing more than a good sleep on any available lap.

Kathy Statton, DVM

Kathy Statton was born and raised here in the Bay Area and has always had a love of animals. During high school, she became more focused on horses, but still has always had a soft spot for family dogs and cats. After attending Cal Poly SLO for undergrad, she moved to the center of the country for vet school at Kansas State University. After graduating in 2004, she completed an internship at one of the premier equine hospitals, which gave her a solid footing to continue equine veterinary practice until 2008.

Dr. Statton moved from Colorado to Rhode Island to Virginia, then back to the Bay Area, all to be closer to her family. A husband, two kids, a dog and two cats are who Kathy considers her family, but really, the cats are in charge!

Outside of work, Kathy spends most of her time outdoors at kids activities, gardening and reading.
