Dr. Joel Huffman

Dr. Joel Huffman joined Orchard Road Animal Hospital in May of 2003. He was born and raised in Belvidere, Illinois. He began his college career at Knox College. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Illinois with a degree in Chemistry. After a few years in the work world, he returned to college to become a veterinarian. He attended the University of Illinois - College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating with honors.

During his studies, he developed an interest in animal behavior and internal medicine.

Dr. Huffman lives in Elburn with his wife, Heather, who is an equine veterinarian and their son, J.J. They have two horses, Bogey and Callaway, and a cat named Chip. In his free time, he enjoys playing basketball and golf. An interesting tidbit is that he was a starting wide receiver for the Knox College football team.
