Dr. Voorhees’ comes to Roseway with 12 years of DVM experience. His first exposure to veterinary medicine as a young boy was with his Grandfather Voorhees, a large animal rural veterinarian who graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1912.
While an undergraduate student of Science, Dr. Voorhees volunteered for several years at The Marine Mammal Center near San Francisco, CA. It was there that his decision to pursue veterinary medicine as a career was solidified.
He transferred to Oregon State University and finished his bachelor’s degree in Zoology and was then accepted into the veterinary medicine program followed by graduation in 2006. He has been working in Portland ever since and has acquired a wide-ranging array of surgical and internal medicine experience, with a special interest and attention in surgery.
Dr. Voorhees has an intuitive, gentle and affable personality with a caring personal nature. He is an animal advocate, 25K trail runner, gardener, musician and burgeoning carpenter. He and his partner, Christina, share a home in NE Portland with their furry kids Lulu Lucy Lu (the beautiful black boxer mix), Elliott T. Smelliott (the orange on white wonder cat), and Joey Django Dingo Dog (the big-eared orange kangaroo-dog).
Dr. Voorhees will begin seeing patients on December 3, 2018.
