Meet our surgeon,
Dr. Sam Hurcombe
Dr. Sam Hurcombe, an Aussie, graduated from veterinary school at Murdoch University in 2003 with first-class honors. He then completed a residency in internal medicine (ACVIM), a master’s degree, and a fellowship in emergency and critical care (ACVECC). He’s since provided surgical services in both university and private practice settings around the world. He’s taught hundreds of veterinary students, interns, and residents, and has published widely on a variety of surgery and critical care topics. Now Dr. Hurcombe is excited to offer premier care to the pets of New York City and surrounding boroughs.
What to expect in a consultation:
Understanding concerns & reviewing options
First and foremost, we get to know you and your pet. We discuss their condition, gather their medical history, review the results of any tests, and discuss any concerns or questions you have. We then clearly go over your treatment options, making sure you have all the knowledge you need to make a decision with confidence and peace of mind.

Pet Surgery FAQs for New Yorkers
Are you a primary care center?
We focus exclusively on surgical services. We serve as an extension of each pet’s care team, and collaborate closely with primary care vets to ensure the best possible outcomes.
What if my pet’s condition is urgent?
While our team is well equipped and trained to handle a wide range of surgical cases, pets that are very sick or severely injured should be treated at a critical care facility.
What payment options do you have?
We offer a variety of payment options, including cash, all major credit cards, CareCredit (a credit card designed specifically for medical financing), and Scratchpay (which offers simple payment plans for medical financing, including some with zero interest).
Will my pet be scared or in pain during treatment?
At all times, we focus on balanced perioperative pain control. This means that from the moment our patient arrives to the moment they go home, we work to maximize their comfort.
