Our Team

Meet our Staff Members

Alisos Animal Hospital is commited to providing you the best possible care. To accomplish this we have put together a team of qualified, dedicated and compassionate people. Below is an introduction to each one of our staff members.


Dr. David Bahou has been involved in veterinary medicine since 1985; working as a kennel attendant and bather in a small animal hospital in Irvine.

Growing up in South Orange County, Dr. Bahou graduated, with honors, from University High School in 1986. He continued working at the same veterinary hospital in Irvine while attending Chapman University on a soccer scholarship; graduating with a B.A. in History in 1991.

He continued his education at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, in St. Kitts-West Indies. There he learned both textbook and practical veterinary medicine and surgery. He finished his veterinary schooling, completing his clinical year at Oklahoma State University in 1994. Dr. Bahou also completed an externship in Dermatology with Dr. Reedy in Dallas, Texas.

Since graduating veterinary school in 1994, Dr. Bahou has been practicing medicine, focusing on individualized, personal care. His special interests include: Dermatology, Internal Medicine, soft tissue surgery and holistic medical therapy.

It has been a dream of Dr. Bahou to own a small animal hospital where he could offer the most comprehensive balance of traditional Western and Holistic Medical Therapy, in a caring and compassionate environment. At Alisos Animal Hospital, Dr. Bahou can finally provide this level of care.


Tina, Hospital Administrator: Tina has worked in every aspect of a veterinary hospital, other than doctor, since she was 18 years old. Starting as a bather in a large local hospital (where she met Dr. Bahou), she worked her way through college, eventually earning her degree from California State University-Fullerton in 1986. With her experience in the field she took a job as Office Manager, of a large corporate veterinary hospital in Los Angeles; ultimately leaving the field to raise her and Dr. Bahou’s son, Maximus. Today Tina takes pride in being the Hospital Administator of Alisos Animal Hospital and ensuring that each and every client receives the best possible care and outstanding service that they deserve.

Jessica, Registered Veterinary Technician: Jessica started working with us in 2005 and obtained her license in 2010. After taking some personal time off, she is back again and we are a stronger hospital because of it. She loves caring for animals and interacting with clients to answer any questions they have about their family members. When asked why she has stayed with Dr. Bahou all these years, “I admire and respect him for his genuine love for his patients and believe in his methods of medical practice and recommendations.”
