    As a relatively recent transplant to southern California, I am so excited and grateful to live in this beautiful city!  I feel blessed to be part of Torrey Pines Animal Hospital where I can contribute the health and welfare of our 4-legged, furry, best friends, as I have done over the last 18 years. When I'm not working, I am spending time outside as much as possible, and delight in living by the ocean.  I also enjoy spending time with friends, exploring the natural world around us, watching movies, and eating.  I currently live with Mr Kitty, one of the sweetest souls I have ever met!

  • "Great experience. Everyone was very nice and friendly to not only my family but to my nervous pup as well. We've been to lots of vet offices over the years, and the overall energy of everyone we came in contact with was the best by far. Love Dr. Vora, we followed her here and will be back for sure!"
    Lisa G.
  • "I just took my 7 month old puppy for a check up and loved Dr. Steele. He answered all my questions and I never felt rushed at all. The vet tech even showed me how to trim my dog's nails. Definitely would recommend this place for anyone's pet."
