Dr. Ewertz grew up in the Northridge section of the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles. A funny coincidence of sorts is the fact that as a boy, Dr. Ewertz used to take his pets to McClave Veterinary Hospital, the very same facility Dr. Bowerman would start his veterinary career. Dr. Ewertz graduated from the University of California, Davis, in 1976. After graduating, he moved directly to San Diego and has been working at Peninsula his entire career. Dr. Ewertz enjoys surfing, gardening, and keeping up with baseball in his spare time. He is a proud husband and a proud father of two sons.read more
