veins specialist, Dr. Bruce Hoyle, M.D.About Dr. Bruce R. Hoyle, M.D.


Dr. Hoyle was born and raised in Toronto Ontario Canada. His undergraduate and medical school training were at the University of Western Ontario. He interned in Vancouver British Columbia and completed a residency in Family Medicine at McMaster Medical Center in Hamilton Ontario.

Dr. Hoyle came to the Orange County California in 1982. While establishing a private practice, he spent 6 years working as an ER doctor in several Orange county hospitals.

In 1990 Dr. Hoyle earned an MBA degree from UC Irvine and was the medical director for a large group in Orange County. He continued his private practice and in the mid 90’s broadened it to include cosmetic procedures. It was this area of medicine that eventually led him to vein disorders.

Timing is everything. The treatment of vein disorders had not changed in decades. However the use of ultrasound to diagnose vein disorders, the use of endovenous lasers and foam sclerotherapy as treatment for varicose veins were new innovations. Dr. Hoyle was the first doctor in Orange County to perform an endovenous ablation. He was in the first 200 doctors in the country to become board certified in the new specialty of Phlebology. He eventually left Family Medicine and cosmetic medicine to focus on veins and established a new dedicated vein practice across from St Joseph’s Hospital.

Dr. Hoyle has passed the examination for Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (R.P.V.I.) by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. He is also an Expert Reviewer for the Medical Board of California and is a consultant at the VA in Long Beach.


Outside of medicine, Dr. Hoyle is an avid outdoors person. He enjoys road cycling, hiking, sailing, skiing and scuba diving. He has 3 daughters.
