Our Doctor…

Dr. Jeffrey Hooykaas was born in Long Beach, raised in Rossmoor, and now resides in Seal Beach with his wife, two daughters, and adored pets Cheeto & Roxy. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Aquatic Biology from UC Santa Barbara, and earned his doctorate at The Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine. He has enjoyed practicing at Corona Del Mar Animal Hospital for the past 11 years, and is excited to establish his own practice in the city of his residence. Dr. Hooykaas looks forward to being able to care for the pets of his family, community, neighbors, and friends.

When Dr. Hooykaas is not at work in the hospital, he is dedicated to going on adventures with his family, and frequents the beaches where he enjoys surfing. His other hobbies include snowboarding, fishing, scuba diving, swimming, and camping.

Dr. Hooykaas is eager to connect with you and your furry friends as if you are a part of his own family. He is committed to providing excellent medical care and advice by utilizing his knowledge, experience, and compassion for people and animals.

We invite you to be a part of our family.
