Dr. Parver attended Jamaica High School in Queens. Upon graduation he began his studies at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. In 1969 he was awarded a bachelors of Science degree from Cornell University. In 1973 he was awarded a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to opening his own practice, Dr. Parver worked as an associate veterinarian at an animal hospital in Nassau County. In August of 1974 Dr. Parver opened his own veterinary practice at Animal Medicine and Surgery of Little Neck. Dr. Parver is a member of the NYCVMA, NYSVMA and the AVMA. He is very proud of the fact that he has been serving his local community for over 30 years at the same location.
Dr. Parver still continues to treat the family pets of his original clients dating back to 1974. His practice has always been on the cutting edge. Aware of the need to modernize and keep up with new diagnostic and surgical equipment, the office has been renovated several times.
Hi, my name is Rebekah Tellerman. I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician and a 2005 graduate of the LaGuardia Veterinary Technology program. I have worked in the veterinary profession for over 10 years and been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to explore many different aspects of the field. I enjoy working with animals of all kinds (and their humans). I love to spend my free time outdoors with my family and friends, including my husband Preston, our daughter Madalynne, and our dog Peewee.
My name is Brian Huber and I currently live in Floral Park. I currently hold a Bachelors of Science in Biology. I have been working for the Animal Medicine and Surgery of Little Neck for 8 years. I have one cat at the moment, her name is Baby and she is a Manx. I am an avid car enthusiast and can say that I have actually built my car from the ground up by myself, an accomplishment I am very proud of. I often find my free time spent away from work and school is by gathering with friends taking cruises in our cars to Jones Beach, Astoria Park and the sorts and enjoying some good food. I do have aspirations to become a Vet and plan on sending my applications to Vet school in the Winter of 2013.
My name is Jimmy Hoffman. I was born, raised and still reside in Queens, New York. I am a happily married man with a wonderful wife and two great kids. I work as a veterinary technician. I always had a love for animal.s, nature and outdoor activities. My hobbies are hunting, working my dog and fishing. I acquired my first dog (shepherd mix), a stray, when i was ten years old. My next two dogs were American pitbull terriers. Once in the terrier world, there was no turning back. I love the tenacity, gameness and above all the no nonsense attitude of the breed. The younger of the two pitbulls (a male rednose dog named Q) took me from adolescence to marriage and having kids. When he passed away I told my wife we did not need a dog for awhile (boy was I wrong). My daughter, who was three at the time, started developing a deep fear of dogs. That was not to be in my home. I love my kids and do not want them to fear anything. I started researching different working terrier breeds. My wife wanted a smaller breed dog. The Patterdale Terrier fit the bill perfectly. I like that they are a take charge dog. If well bred, they are a deadgame terrier. Those are the qualities I look for in a working-hunter terrier. I found a quality breed with good working stock and got a puppy out of California. He was shipped to me at the age of 7 weeks. He took the 7 hour flight in stride and his tail has never gone down since. He has grown into a very fine,versatile, rugged, fearless hunter and a great family dog too My daughter no longer fears dogs. His name is Mighty and his name says it all. He has dispatched everything from raccoon, possum, groundhog, and of course rats. I am an active member of the Ryder Alley Trencher Fed Society and they are a great group of quality people that I am proud to say I am a part of.
My name is Giovanna Dispenza and I have been employed with Animal Medicine & Surgery of Little Neck since 2011. I am employed as a veterinary assistant. Working with animals since 2006, I swtiched hospitals several times hoping to find an environment I loved. Dr. Parver's team is more like a family and I love working here.
I currently have a Shih-Tzu named Joba and 2 birds. I enjoy going to the park with my dog, spending time with my family and playing piano.
My name is Elise Coppola. I started my career when I was 10 years old by catching all the stray animals and finding homes for them. It still continues today but now I have the help of my 3 daughters who have the same love I do for all animals.In the past 2 years I have found homes for 14 strays. I knew my whole life that I wanted to work with animals. I have been a pet groomer for the past 30 years. I began in my home and soon found myself in an animal hospital for 28 years. A year and a half ago I found a new home at Animal Medicine and Surgery of Little Neck. Dr. Parver and the entire staff are great to work with and are first class when it comes to taking care of the pets that come in.
My name is Kellian Quallo. I have been working at Dr. Parver’s office for the past 2 years as a student worker. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a strong passion for animals. I knew from the first time I laid eyes on a cat, that I wanted to pursue a career involving animals.
I attended John Bowne High School where I was enrolled in the Agriculture Program. Being in the program peaked my interest in the veterinary field the most. I was placed by the school with Dr. Parver to give me the hands on learning I needed to help me with my career pursuit. Working here has taught me more than d I could learn sitting in the classroom. Assisting Dr. Parver and the veterinary technicians helps me understand the concepts of the veterinary world and what is needed of me to succeed in this career. Everything I learn in the office, I take home and share with friends and family members who have pets of their own. Many times they’ll come to me asking questions about their pets to see what they can do to better their pet’s life. It is a good feeling knowing I can answer their questions.
My name is Vanessa Munoz. I am currently attending Laguardia College where I am studying to be a veterinary technician. I expect to receive my veterinary technician license shortly. I am also working as a veterinary assistant at Animal Medicine and Surgery.
I was in the Animal Science program in high school. There I was exposed to many species of animals including horses, cows, goats, dogs, cats, hamsters, to name just a few. I was also very fortunate to work at the Bronx Zoo in the zoology department.
In my free time I enjoy being home with my family and playing with my two cats Pebbles and BamBam
