Rikesh Patel BVMS BSc MRCVS
Owner & Veterinary Surgeon
Welcome - My name is Rikesh Suresh Patel – a friendly approachable partner.
I am your vet for Wallasey Vets4Pets. I was born & raised in London and graduated from the University of Glasgow Vet School in 2007. After graduating I spent 3 years gaining further skills in Cairns, Australia, as well as a year in New Zealand in 2011 helping to open and being chief vet, running a brand new, only after hour’s emergency centre in Hamilton, Waikato.
Whilst at University I enjoyed, and still try to enjoy (time permitting) lots of outdoors activities including hiking, potholing and travelling, I also enjoy watching & playing (albeit not very well) football & rugby.
I adopted a cat called John Arne Riise the Second (Riise for short) in 2007 - he has since lived with my family in London. Despite the name, I'm an Aston Villa supporter.
I am still highly ambitious and this has shown with the opening of this brand new surgery and will show with my consulting skill, and care for the animals and the owners. Special interests include dermatology (skin) and exotics, amongst the wide variety of day to day surgical life.
I hope to welcome you to our surgery soon & the team is looking forward to meeting you and your pets.
