Bio and pic coming soon!


Elizabeth Stone, DVM, Hospital Owner

Dr. Stone was born in Pasadena, California and raised in Los Angeles County. She attended and earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from California State University, Fullerton. Dr. Stone worked as a sales representative to the defense industry before embarking on a veterinary career. Attending the Registered Veterinary Technician Program at Mesa College, Dr. Stone graduated among the top in her class and began her veterinary voyage working at a small animal/avian/exotic practice. Her desire to improve the lives of animals in her care led her to further her education in veterinary medicine. Dr. Stone graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 and received Mizzou's Needles Brooker Scholarship for exemplifying the importance of the human animal bond. Returning to San Diego, Dr. Stone practiced veterinary medicine in East County at a small animal/exotic practice before becoming a partner at Coronado Veterinary Hospital in April of 2007. In July of 2012, Dr. Stone became the full owner of the practice. She is committed to providing progressive, quality healthcare and preventative medicine to the patients of Coronado Veterinary Hospital. She is an active board member of Participatory Solutions (www.participatorysolutionsinc.com), a non-proit organization dedicated to providing care to the homeless and their pets.

Dr. Stone lives in Lakeside with her husband Bob and their 2 horses, 9 cats, and her 2 Borzois, Lincoln and Zhivago. Her horses Julia and Travis are wild mustangs she adopted from the Bureau of Land Management whom she tamed and trained herself. She considers all her pets and patients treasured family members.


Liz Noppinger, DVM

Dr. Liz Noppinger was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, dreaming of becoming a veterinarian from an early age. She started with rescuing stray animals, trying to convince her family to adopt them. She then moved on to volunteer work at local veterinary clinics and shelters throughout high school and college. Just a few months after graduating from University of Maryland, she drove across the country to California to pursue her career.

After spending 3 years working with wildlife, exotics, and shelter animals in the San Francisco Bay Area, she was accepted and graduated from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Noppinger and her husband headed to the Central Coast of California, living there for five years where she worked as a small animal veterinarian, spending her days off spaying and neutering at the local humane society. Over time, they missed the activities associated with living in a big city. Since San Diego has always been her desired destination, she is excited to finally plant roots here!

Dr. Noppinger’s special interests include behavior, emergency medicine, and oncology and hospice care. She also appreciates the workup involved with internal medicine, and takes the time to thoroughly present her diagnosis and treatment plan to clients.

San Diego has always been Dr. Noppinger’s dream city. She loves to be walking distance to the beach and have easy access to her favorite activities: jogging, hiking, freshening up her surfing skills, and traveling whenever time allows.

Dr. Noppinger and her husband share their home with two adorable feline friends, and a rescued, perfect brindle dog!
