Dr. Darrin Kortyka 

DVM, Practice Owner

Dr. Darrin Kortyka is originally from Ohio. He went to the National University of Ireland where he graduated with honors in 2001. His interests include internal medicine, pain control, dentistry and dermatology. He also passionately believes in preventative care and avoiding disease transmission from pets to family members. Dr. Kortyka previously practiced in Columbus, OH and Pittsburgh, PA before most recently working in Tualatin prior to purchasing the clinic from Dr. Bean in February of 2013.

Dr. Kortyka enjoys spending his free time at the coast with his wife and two dogs, brewing his own beer and cheering on his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. Dr. Kortyka’s wife, Leah (who is also a veterinarian) recently gave birth this past January to their first child, Gavin. The Kortyka’s also have a cat, Bruce, that they brought home from Ireland who is responsible for keeping their two dogs in line.


Dr. Leah Story 

DVM, Practice Owner

I’m the black sheep of the family, as the only Beaver in a long family history of Ducks!  After completing my undergraduate degrees in Zoology & Biology, at Oregon State University, I decided to pursue my veterinary degree abroad.  This brought me to University College Dublin in the heart of Ireland.  I lived and studied in Dublin for the next five years.  This is where I obtained my veterinary degree, my cat Bruce, and my husband, also a veterinarian.

After graduation in 2004, we relocated to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I took my first job at Castle Shannon Animal Hospital.  After a few years I moved on to Bakerstown Animal Hospital in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. While living in Wexford, PA I adopted Tarkin my Shepherd mix, who has been by my side ever since.  Six years later I decided it was time to come home to the Pacific Northwest. Our dream was to have our own animal hospital where we could treat pets like the family members we see them as.  We were fortunate and after two years of searching the right place came along.  Our new home is Kindness Family Pet Clinic in beautiful Forest Grove.  We welcomed our first child two weeks after obtaining the clinic, so life was doubly blessed.Working at Kindness has allowed me to pursue my special interests in preventative medicine, pet behavior, dentistry and dermatology.  For fun I love spending time with my family, trips to Cannon Beach, scrapbooking, and throwing parties for friends and family.         


Testimonial

This vet has been so very kind to us and our fur babies. They love both our dogs and have the best customer service. The pricing here is also amazing as well. It's a little drive out to forest grove, but so worth it. I highly recommend kindness family pet clinic.
