Dr. Youssef
Dr. Youssef

Dr. Youssef is the founder and owner of North Star Animal Hospital; he has always enjoyed the company of animals, developing a close bond with them at a young age. Dr. Youssef grew up and was raised in a small city in Egypt. He had a cat, turtle and parakeets. He always had a dream to enjoy and save pets all his life.

Dr. Youssef graduated with a Bachelor Degree from Cairo University of Veterinary Medicine in Egypt, earning his veterinary degree in 2002.
His passion for veterinary medicine and love of animals has led him to complete his evaluation to practice in America; he earned his E.C.F.V.G degree from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Columbia, Missouri in 2007.
Dr. Youssef moved to the Beautiful city of San Antonio and practiced as a full time veterinarian in a general practice for three years, then he found that he need to satisfy his knowledge and perform more critical care procedures, so he worked at an Emergency hospital for three years, which thereafter he wanted to apply his own vision toward pet compassionate care and the highest quality of veterinary medicine.

Dr. Youssef decided to open his own hospital, which offers the best quality of care for pets with passion; so he can serve clients daily as owner and medical director of North Star Animal Hospital.

Dr. Youssef enjoys the many roles he plays as a veterinarian, including being a pet’s diagnostician, pharmacist, dentist, surgeon, parasite control advisor and pet advocate. The challenge of managing these different tasks certainly keeps him very alert and fulfilled!

He is proud to be living his dream of taking care of animals by preventing disease, diagnosing and treating illnesses and alleviating suffering.

Outside of his veterinary career, Dr. Youssef enjoys traveling, swimming, fishing, watching soccer and movies; his most interest is in tennis and he plays it in his spare time.
Also he spent most of his time with his big family; specially his wife Maria and they have a 2 years old daughter Joymarie which keep them both very busy!

Dr. Youssef and Maria have 2 cats; a Japanese bob tail named Ozzie and a Siamese named Ottah .
