Dr. Armita Sarcon grew up in Southern California, the ”land of milk and honey”. She received her bachelor’s degree in animal science/pre-veterinary, with a minor in microbiology, from the California State Polytechnic University in Pomona. Prior to attending veterinary school, Armita spent several years working as a veterinary assistant. She earned her doctorate degree from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine then completed an internship in internal medicine and surgery at Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Irvine, California. Dr. Sarcon also finished one year of clinical training at Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

Before she joined VRA, Dr. Sarcon practiced at an emergency clinic in Northern Virginia. She is especially interested in the fields of zoonotic/infectious diseases, sepsis, trauma and cardiopulmonary diseases. When not hard at work, Armita relaxes by traveling, discovering new restaurants in the greater DC area, running, drawing/painting and especially, spending time with her mischievous cats Tuxedo and Moushi.
