Bill Rivers, DVM, PhD, ACVR

Dr. Bill Rivers consulting radiologist for Story Road Animal Hospital in San Jose

American College of Veterinary Medicine Board Certified Veterinary Radiology Specialist

We are so fortunate to have Dr. Bill Rivers as our consulting radiologist. His expertise in veterinary radiology (x-rays) is an integral component of our diagnostic protocol. The best treatment plan begins with the correct diagnosis. Reading, interpreting, and making an accurate diagnosis from radiographs is an art and science. And lucky for us, for you, and your pets, Dr. Rivers is one of the best.

Dr. Rivers attended veterinary school as the oldest of five children – and the first in his family to ever attend college. He did so with the assistance of federal education loans. After graduating from UC Davis Veterinary School in 1984, he completed a rotating internship with Dr. Steven Ettinger in Los Angeles the following year. He then returned to the bay area and practiced general small animal and emergency medicine for the next seven years before completing his training in radiology with a clinical research degree at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. He then spent a year as visiting instructor at the Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine, followed by another year in a specialty practice in Dallas, Texas. He now resides in the bay area offering professional services through his mobile radiology consulting practice.
