Dr. Ben Singh is a General Practitioner and owner of Aviara Animal Health Center since August of 2010.

Following college, Dr. Singh earned certification in Chemical Engineering and attended a Master's program in Polymer Chemistry. He then worked in polymer research for a chemical company for seven years.

However, the desire to become engaged in the animal care field led him to enroll in St. George's University's School of Veterinary Medicine and then complete his clinical training at The University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine. In 2005, Dr. Singh received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He then performed an internship at the Animal Medical Center in San Diego, California in general surgery and medicine.

As a General Practitioner, Dr. Goff values the opportunity to serve families in the community by providing compassionate, individualized care for every pet.

During her college years at UCLA as a marine biology major, Dr. Goff worked at an animal hospital in Santa Monica as a receptionist and assistant.

During vet school she participated in caring for newborn foals and livestock, did an externship at Orange County Animal Control, and ran the student feeding program for Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Her first years of general practice were spent in a rural area north of Sacramento, until she relocated to beautiful Carlsbad in 2005.

She looks forward to building relationships that empower owners to make educated decisions about their pet’s medical care.

When she is not busy with work or caring for her three lovely children, Dr. Goff can be found at the beach, hiking Calavera, or curled up with a good book. She is the proud owner of two gorgeous ragdoll cats, Matthew and Jessica.
