Our Veterinarians

Dr. Sharon Gorman
Owner, Veterinarian
From the time she could utter her first words as a toddler, Dr. Sharon Gorman knew she wanted to work with animals. As she grew older, she realized she would only be satisfied with a career that was challenging, fulfilling, and constantly evolving. Veterinary medicine fit the bill perfectly!

Dr. Gorman’s veterinary career began in her home state of New Jersey, where she began working as a kennel attendant during high school. She then moved to Virginia to attend both undergraduate and veterinary school. During her schooling, she served as a receptionist and Veterinary Technician at a local hospital. After earning her degree, Dr. Gorman sought out the warm weather of Las Vegas and has been here ever since.

After working in the Las Vegas area for nearly five years, Dr. Gorman decided to pursue her longtime dream of owning her very own practice and being able to set the standard of care and customer service. In late 2000, her dream became a reality when Creature Comforts Animal Hospital opened its doors for business.

Dr. Gorman’s professional interests include exotic medicine, surgery, and excellent client education. Above all, she loves working with her team to offer pet owners an incredibly high care standard for their beloved animals.

Dr. Gorman, her husband Jason, and their children Skylar, Sierra, and Cody share their home with many pets. They have five dogs—Molly, Panda Pooh, Bandit, Ivory, and Boo—as well as a pair of cats named Rose and Hokie. The family also keeps six horses: Prancer and Radar, the veterans of the group; Casper, who prefers to watch everyone from afar; Colby and Collette, who are both starting to slow down a bit; and Sonar, who Dr. Gorman rides whenever she needs to de-stress.

Aside from horseback riding, Dr. Gorman loves to scuba dive when time permits. She and her family go on a scuba trip every year, and Dr. Gorman’s oldest daughter has even become a certified diver!
Dr. Renee Hussy
Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Hussy has been obsessed with veterinary medicine ever since she was a young girl—she actually had aspirations of becoming a jockey before growing too tall by age 11! It was only a few years later, when Dr. Hussy was a mere 15 years old, that she started volunteering right here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital. She’s been a part of the family ever since.

Dr. Hussy is a Las Vegas native, and started here at the clinic on a full-time basis during her high school years. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Las Vegas, then traveled to Dublin, Ireland to study veterinary medicine at University College Dublin. Dr. Hussy continued working here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital during summer and winter breaks, and is now a full-time Associate Veterinarian! She has special medical interests in exotic-animal medicine and physical therapy; Dr. Hussy hopes to utilize physical therapy techniques for more and more of the hospital’s patients in the coming years.

Thanks to all of her traveling between the United States and Ireland, Dr. Hussy hasn’t been able to have her own pet for quite a while; she hopes to adopt her first dog very soon! For now, she contents herself by spending time with her mother’s horse, La’mare; her father’s cat, Spooky; and Moose, her sister’s large and drool-prone Cane Corso Mastiff.

When time permits outside of work, Dr. Hussy enjoys distance running, camping and hiking throughout Nevada, California, and Utah, and traveling abroad. Her favorite locales so far have been Rome and Lagos, Portugal.
Dr. Tiffany Paul
Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Tiffany Paul considers it an honor to be trusted with the pets of the Las Vegas area. She knows that when she’s taking care of an animal, she’s also taking care of an entire family!

Originally from Georgia, Dr. Paul attended Louisiana State University for her veterinary education and arrived in Las Vegas in 2005. She began here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital in 2009 as a relief veterinarian, and liked it so much that she stayed on as a full-time Associate Veterinarian. Her professional interests include internal medicine and feline care; Dr. Paul believes a good cat is one of the best things in the world!

Aside from her duties here at the clinic, Dr. Paul gives her time to Noah’s Animal House, where she takes care of pets that have been a part of abusive relationships or are otherwise less fortunate. She also teaches Veterinary Technicians-in-training at the PIMA Medical Institute.
At home, Dr. Paul and her husband have many pets, including several dogs, a number of cats, and three birds.
Dr. David Espinosa
Associate Veterinarian
David Espinosa is a native from Louisiana. He completed his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Louisiana State University Veterinary Medicine in 2009. After graduating, Dr. Espinosa completed a small animal rotating internship at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 and enrolled in the medical oncology residency at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine from 2011-2013.

His clinical interest is in chemotherapy and surgical oncology. He is currently treating various cancers in dogs, cats, and exotics.

In his free time, Dr. Espinosa enjoys his hobby of hiking. Dr. Espinosa and his husband live with their three children and a zoo at home!

      I took advantage of CREATURE COMFORTS free initial exam for my great Dane. They all were most gracious with their time. The doc sat down in the exam room with me and had a conversation about Lucky....I feel very comfortable with the staff and Dr.Tompkins. I've had great Danes for 50 years. Doc was happy to "discuss" care for lucky with me instead of "dictating" a plan. She took my experience to heart and nodded appropriately to the knowledge "I bring to the table." Their free initial exam came right when I was actively looking for a new vet. If I hadn't been looking I would have passed on the offer. Timing was just great, but even if you aren't looking for a new doctor, I recommend you meet & greet with them. I'm way down in Henderson, but I like them so much I will make the drive. After 50 years you can imagine how "jaded" I am about health care for my great danes.....CREATURE COMFORTS happily exceeded my expectations!🐕👌🐶

      One of the best things we've ever found in Las Vegas since we moved here!! Staff is wonderful. Our dog loves to stay there. She can't wait to go in the back. She is a cancer survivor and they were instrumental in getting her the best care. Highly recommend them.
