Dr. Douglas Kent Wyler

Medical Director

Dr. Douglas Wyler has been fascinated by puzzles for as long as he can remember. When he was introduced to veterinary medicine by his older brother—who works as a veterinarian himself—Dr. Wyler knew that animal care was the perfect challenge for him. Not only would he get to better the lives of pets, he would be able to use his problem-solving skills to bring comfort to their owners! Now, Dr. Wyler has been serving the community as the Medical Director of the Animal Medical Hospital and Animal Medical Hospital for nearly 40 years.

A native of Brooklyn, Dr. Wyler completed his Bachelor’s degree in biological sciences at Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Science, then decided to follow his brother to Italy for veterinary school. Dr. Wyler attended the oldest veterinary school in the Western world, the Universita’ degli Studi di Bologna, where he learned not only veterinary medicine but four languages, fascinating history, an entirely new culture, and much more!

After graduating with his veterinary degree, Dr. Wyler returned to New York and practiced in Brooklyn while obtaining additional training at Manhattan’s Animal Medical Hospital. In 1977, he opened the Animal Medical Hospital for business and has been serving the pet owners of the area ever since.

Dr. Wyler and his wife, Irma, have three grown children who were raised in Rockville Centre. They share their lives with Charlie, an elderly miniature long-haired Dachshund; Delilah the cat, who is very affectionate when she wants to be; and Alex, a Quaker Parrot who has never heard the adage “don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”

When he has a spare moment between family life and his duties here at the clinic, Dr. Wyler enjoys music and particularly loves Brazilian jazz and Latin salsa. He and his wife try to catch as many live performances as they can—those rhythms just don’t let them sit still!

  • Rockville Centre, Garden City, Freeport, Baldwin, Uniondale, West Hempstead, Franklin Square, East Meadow, and neighboring towns in Nassau County, Long Island, New York
  • What a thorough, caring, and knowledgeable staff! I felt like Scarlett (my cat) got compassionate and focused care. My neighbor raved about Dr. Wyler and now I know why...but the entire staff displayed over the top attentiveness! Go there, everyone!
  • I have been going to Animal Medical Hospital for many, many years, and have had several pets treated by Dr. Douglas Wyler. He has always given them the best of care, and keeps me informed about what is going on with them. He and all the staff are just wonderful - Lisa, especially, has been so helpful! I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable veterinarian!
  • We have been going to Whitestone Vet Care for over 10 years now. Our dog Twister is now 11 years old and due to the wonderful care she has received from Dr.Wyler and his staff over the years, she is as healthy and happy as a spring chicken.
  • This is my 1st dog and I just love this place. They are willing to answer all my questions and concerns. I never have to wait long and everyone is so loving and caring. I feel confident my Dog Max is being care for well.
  • Very satisfied with the care my cat, Sunkiss received. The technicians, veterinarian, and staff, were very professional, friendly, and concerned about her problem. Used them for my other tabby, Tiger; who had a grocery list of problems; but lived a comfortable life to the age of 16.5 years.
