Veterinary Careers—What Is It Like to Work With Us?

Veterinary Careers—What Is It Like to Work With Us?
November 10, 2022

Are you looking for a career in veterinary medicine? We’re really proud of what we’ve built here at Northeast Animal Hospital. We want to share our philosophy and experiences so you can get a good idea of what it’s like to work here as one of our staff veterinarians.

Our people are what make us who we are. Their experience and dedication help us stand out above the rest. Your uniqueness is an asset to us, because your voice will be heard and included. Our outstanding team of devoted veterinarians and support team want to see each other succeed.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop in a career you truly love, in an amazing practice in beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. Northeast Animal Hospital is a well-established, well-managed practice with two locations, two miles apart.

Since 1973, our modern facility has kept up to date with the latest technology, complete with surgical and therapeutic laser, a dental suite including digital imaging, newly upgraded ultrasound, and full-body digital radiology equipment.

Devoted to Pets, their People, and our Team

We truly are Devoted to Pets and Their People—and OUR people. We can build your dream work schedule! We want to invest in YOU and are willing to get creative to find the best fit. We are flexible, knowing that a happy team makes a happy workplace. But don’t just take our word for it, here is what Dr. Benham has to say about practicing here:

“We have the BEST doctor's I have ever worked with—they are ALL rockstars that lead by example: they work hard, get along with each other, and help anyone with anything. None of us are above cleaning out a cage, cleaning up a patient, or jumping in to help somebody out where needed…just truly an All-Star team of DVM's here.

“All of our staff seem to have an excellent rapport. Everyone tries to have fun throughout the day. And even when it's stressful, there is rarely a time that I walk through the hospital that I don't smile or laugh when talking to someone.

“Dr. Scribano (our chief of staff) has always strongly encouraged his associates to find the aspect or aspects of veterinary medicine they are passionate about and pursue additional training and knowledge in those areas. 

“He is a really big part of the reason that I am so experienced in dentistry and that Dr. Sanin has the opportunity to pursue in-depth ultrasound training.

“It’s very beneficial for the veterinarians who are able to gain additional knowledge in something that they really like to do. It’s very beneficial to our clients and patients to have access to an increased level of care and opportunities for things like ultrasound or more advanced dental care without having to go to a specialist. (Of course, we are not in the same level as a specialist, but are more skilled than the average general practitioner.) And it’s beneficial to Northeast Animal Hospital, as it allows us to keep more things in house instead of having to refer everything out. It also helps to keep clients happy and to keep our vets happy.”

What Our Team Members Say

Here’s how some of our staff feel about working with our team of doctors, and each other: 

  • It really feels like a family here—everyone is so caring, pushing each other to do their best.—Nina
  • The dedication and compassion every single person has makes coming to work each day enjoyable. Everyone is friendly and open minded, and the doctors really care about their patients and help us learn along the way.—Sarah
  • There's always an opportunity to learn and grow in knowledge and experience.—Kyaja
  • The continuous learning and teamwork are key points in which I enjoy doing what I do so much.—Melanie
  • Everyone here has a true passion for their work and cares deeply for the pets we see—and it shows. It's refreshing to be a part of a team that is in this field for the right reasons.—Alexa

Marisha, our Hospital Manager, observes:

“The doctors work really well together. Everyone is always willing to pitch-in to give a second opinion on bloodwork or x-rays, brainstorm options for additional work-up or therapy, or even offer to see an extra appointment when someone else is 'in the weeds.' There is no jealousy or possessiveness. We have worked really hard to curate a team of people who are kind, caring, get along well, and practice excellent medicine.”
