Dr. Roey Kestleman


Dr. Roey Kestelman and his family, originally from Israel, recently moved to California after practicing veterinary medicine in British Columbia, Canada, for the last 14 years.

But the story starts decades earlier:

After a long career as an advanced life support paramedic, dated back to 1992, Dr. Kestelman decided to pursue a path that would allow him to help those who can’t speak for themselves. He left Israel to study Veterinary Medicine in Budapest Hungary in 1999. After graduation in 2003 he spent time at several universities in the United States and later moved to beautiful British Columbia in 2008.

And since the summer of 2022, he calls the Santa Clarita Valley, home.

Dr. Kestelman has a special interest in Geriatric medicine, emergency and critical care patients and soft tissue surgeries.

He is known to greet everyone with a warm “Shalom” and speaks English and Hebrew. His personal interests include Brazilian jiujitsu but most of all he loves to spend time with his wife and two children as well as his Pitbull named Rescue.
