A Community Of Wellness
The Suffolk Veterinary Group Animal Wellness & Laser Surgery Center takes great pride in our community. We live local, visit the same places our families do, and participate in a lot of the same activities that make Long Island great.
We are part of the Town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County, New York, and mostly serve the towns of Selden (11784), Centereach (11720), Coram (11727), Farmingville (11738), and Port Jefferson Station (11776/11777), although we have seen patients from as far away as Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, and Queens. We are located in the Middle Country Central School District.
And we’re always a short phone call away at 631-696-2400 if you have questions.
Here is just some of our community involvement.
Suffolk County Community College
Veterinary Science Technology Program Internships
Interns learn how Licensed Veterinary Technicians contribute to the atmosphere and management of a small animal veterinary clinic with hands-on training! Through our partnership with Suffolk County Community College, Suffolk Veterinary Group Animal Wellness & Laser Surgery Center is proud to offer students of the Veterinary Science Technology program opportunities to gain real world experience in what it is like for a Licensed Veterinary Technician on the job. Intern positions with Suffolk Veterinary Group are available during every SCCC semester they are offered. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to; assisting LVTs and DVMs with examination and treatment protocols, surgical and laboratory monitoring under LVT supervision, and generating a positive experience for our families and patients at our clinic. Over the course of their internship, students will learn how to function in our team as any fully fledged LVT does. Our current Office Manager is a graduate of the SCCC Veterinary Science Technology Program.
