Meet the Doctors

  • Victor LaGinestra
    Victor LaGinestra DVM

    I was born in Elmont, New York. I attended Chaminade High School in Mineola, then attended Fairfield University in Connecticut. I continued on to The University of Bari Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Italy where I achieved my veterinary degree. I also completed post graduate work at the Animal Medical Center in New York City .

    As a young child, I spent all of my free time in pet shops. I always had a strong desire to work with animals. I knew that I possesed a great compassion for animals and enjoyed spending time with them.

    From 1985 to 1995 I worked at three small animal hospitals on Long Island and then decided to open my own practice, so that I  could have the freedom to practice veterinary medicine the way that I felt it should be practiced. In 1995, I opened up the Animal Hospital of Roslyn and it quickly grew to a four veterinarian hospital.

    I feel so blessed to be able to go to work each day knowing that I can do the very best for the clients and pets that I help each day. It is very important for me to develop a relationship with people so that they know that I am always there for them when they need me.

    Our  hospital aims to practice high quality medicine and surgery in a relaxed atmosphere without rushing clients and their pets in and out.

    Dr. Vic lives with his wife and 4 children locally. He has two great dogs Tessa and Sophie and three cats: Luke Salem and Lucie.
