Scott Neabore, DVM
I am a solo practitioner and owner of Neabore Veterinary Clinic, a small animal general practice in Haddonfield, NJ. I opened Neabore Veterinary Clinic in May 2019. I am a 2015 graduate of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. I decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine after volunteering in the emergency department at the Tufts Cummings School during my last year of college. Shortly after, I graduated with a B.A. in Biology from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. I then worked for two years as a veterinary assistant at an independently owned, small animal practice near my hometown of Nyack, NY. I also hold an M.S. in biology from Fordham University in New York.
While in veterinary school at Tufts, I married my wife, Lindsey, a science journalist. After graduation, we moved to Tinton Falls, NJ, where I completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital. Upon completion of the internship, I took a position with the parent company, Compassion First, at a clinic in southern New Jersey. I worked for them for the next three years as a general practitioner and part-time emergency doctor, before leaving to start my own general practice.
There are a great deal of challenges facing the independent practitioner in the current climate of veterinary medicine. These include student debt, increased competition from corporate practices, specialty practices, low-cost clinics, and online pharmacies, as well as shortages of experienced technicians and associates.
Ultimately, I feel that independent practitioners are best positioned to grapple with these challenges if we work together to support each other. As I continue to progress in my medical and business career, I want to help other veterinarians adapt and change to remain competitive in this field. I see the IVPA becoming a strong voice and positive influence on veterinary medicine for years to come.
