Medical Director/ Management Team
Dr. Colleen Scoda
Dr. Colleen Scoda graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Becoming a veterinarian was a lifelong dream of hers. She understands the value a pet brings to life and is inspired every day to learn and grow in order to provide the best care possible for her patients.
Dr. Scoda believes that preventative care is the basis of superior veterinary care. She takes a special interest in not only wellness care, dentistry and surgery but also end of life and palliative care for her patients. She maintains active memberships in the American Veterinary Medical Association, New York State Veterinary Medical Association, and American Animal Hospital Association. She is the Medical Director at the hospital. She enjoys being involved in the community through volunteer and outreach activities and is a member of The Junior League of Rochester.
When not caring for her patients, Dr Scoda enjoys yoga, running, reading, as well as traveling and hiking with her husband. They share their home with two Miniature Dachshunds and a Caribbean Kitty. Her oldest, Eugene, has been with her from undergrad college, marriage and vet school from start to finish. He has traveled the world with her and spends every day curled in a comfy bed under her desk. He was joined by Emma, The Caribbean kitty, when Dr. Scoda rescued her while in veterinary school. You can often find Emma seeking heat and reminiscing about her life under the Caribbean sun. Three years ago, Hamilton, their youngest miniature dachshund joined the clan. He loves to be outdoors and garden with his dad and can often be found hiking and cross country skiing with both of his parents.
Dr. Nicole Hoguet
Dr. Nicole Hoguet graduated from Kansas State University in May 2021. Nicole’s combined love for animals, science, and helping others, led her to become a Veterinarian. She sees the importance in the human animal bond and the role veterinary medicine plays in strengthening and lengthening that bond.
Dr. Hoguet has special interest in surgery, medicine, oncology, and ophthalmology. She strives to provide a positive veterinary experience for her patients, and is fear-free certified.
Dr. Hoguet is initially from New Jersey and is excited to be back in the Northeast with her fiancé, a Rochester native. In her free time, she enjoys working out, cooking, hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and cuddling with her cats. She has two cats named Fred and George, who are always up to no good. Fred and George really enjoy wrestling, bird watching, and worshiping their automatic feeder together.
