Dr. Dorothy Hoppe

Dr. Dorothy Hoppe was born in Poland and came to the US at the age of 9. She spent most of her life in Florida and began medical school there. After a year of medical school, she realized veterinary medicine was her true calling and resigned.

She graduated from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009 and moved to the Bay Area for an internship at a specialty/emergency practice.

Since then she has worked in several areas of veterinary medicine, from general practice to emergency to shelter. She particularly enjoys surgery, ultrasound, urgent care, and the relationship with pets and their owners.

Dr. Hoppe lives in San Francisco with three cats and a crazy Cambodian dog. In her free time, she loves to travel, hiking with the crazy dog, SCUBA, reading, and DIY projects she rarely finishes. 

Dr. Rob West

Dr. Rob West was born and raised in Massachusetts and relocated to the bay area in 1990. He attended veterinary school at The University of California at Davis and graduated in 1998.  

Dr. West has worked primarily at emergency and specialty hospitals and a few general practices over the years. Committing his veterinary career to provide the highest-quality, compassionate, thoughtful care to all of his patients has been a top priority. 

He is an avid surfer and enjoys hiking, backpacking, skiing, and just about everything outdoors. He lives in Pacifica with his wife Lindsey and two children. Like every veterinary professional, there is a crew of pets!!
