Dr. Robert Kaufman
Dr. Robert Kaufman

Dr. Kaufman was born and raised in Burbank, California. He earned his undergraduate degree at UC Davis and continued his education at Araneta University where he earned his veterinary degree. He completed his clinical rotation at Louisiana State University before returning to Southern California and beginning his veterinary career. His first experience practicing medicine was at two hospitals in Manhattan Beach and El Segundo. He bought his first practice, Marina Animal Hospital, in Redondo Beach in 1989. The practice rapidly outgrew the small facility. The need for more space and the desire to allow the practice to care for more pets in the South Bay helped him to decide to purchase Harbor Animal Hospital in Torrance. Because the new hospital was just a few miles down the street, Dr.Kaufman was able to combine the two practices into one, at the new, larger facility.

Dr. Kaufman enjoys the challenges of all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery, but is especially interested in dermatology, dentistry, avian, and exotic medicine. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the California Veterinary Medical Association, the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association, the Association of Avian Veterinarians, and has been President of the Sierra Veterinary Medical Association in the past. Currently, Dr.Kaufman is the President of the Board of Directors for the Emergency Pet Clinic of the South Bay.

When Dr. Kaufman has time off from his practice, he enjoys snow skiing, water skiing, scuba diving, sailing, and, most of all, time with his wife Karen. They have two great daughters who keep their parent's very busy. Their family also includes two dogs, Fyera and Kira. Fyera is a young standard poodle who keeps their older Golden Retriever, Kira, entertained! They also share their home with two cats, Cinderella and Nemo, along with a Sand Boa named Sandy. In the past, the Kaufmans have also enjoyed owning a Moluccan Cockatoo and Desert Tortoises.
