Meet the Doctors

  • 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.

  • Dr. Amy Ostreich

    Dr. Ostreich is a native Long Islander originally from Plainview. She  spent her first three years of veterinary school on the beautiful island of St. Kitts at Ross University then returned to the states to spend her clinical year in Ithaca at Cornell University. Before receiving her DVM she was a licensed veterinary technician working in Emergency, Internal Medicine, ICU/Critical Care, and Exotics medicine at many of the specialty hospitals on Long Island. Dr. Ostreich’s interests include small animal medicine and surgery as well as exotic animal medicine. She currently lives with her many dogs and cats as well as her 2 blue and gold macaws, Kiwi and Angel.

  • Dr. Mike Sablowsky

    Dr. Mike Sablowsky was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He received his bachelor of science from Temple University. Afterwards, he attended St. George’s University in Grenada, where he received his Veterinary Medicine degree. He completed his clinical training at North Carolina State University. He was very impressed by our commitment to quality medicine and patient care as top priorities; consequently he is very happy to be part of our team.

    Outside of work, he is usually enjoying art in some form, whether it’s painting, going to museums, or coloring. He is also an avid video gamer when he can find the time. He lives with his fiancé, Roberto, and his three cats, Eevee, Luna and Loki.
