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 Whitestone Veterinary Care 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 Center. 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!

  • I am extremely satisfied with Whitestone Veterinary. I have been with them for 6 years & have two dogs in their care. They are very thorough & caring. After I bring my dogs in for a shot or illness they always call the next day to ask how the dogs are. I highly recommend them & have recommended them.
  • Dr. Wyler and his team are caring, patient, knowledgeable and sensitive! Have been bringing our pets here for many years and have always received top quality, thorough care by experts who love animals. If there were more than 5 stars, I'd give more!
  • Absolutely love this place Dr. Wyler and all of the veterinarians and assistants have been taking care of my dog for 10+ years and they are very patient with the animals and owners. I appreciate everything they have done for my dog. This is the place to go for your animals I recommend it 1 million percent! The Hempstead location is the exact same way!
  • The entire team responded with the utmost professionalism and compassion to provide comfort and care for our pet while facing two other emergencies that kept them all working under Doctor Yu’s supervision almost 2 hours past closing time, and they performed most admirably and impressively!
  • This appointment was so much easier than I thought it would be and everyone was so kind and patient with my cat (and me). I am grateful for Dr. Yu and the whole team. Thank you thank you thank you!
