Our goal as a practice is to deliver compassionate, high quality care to all of our patients. Our veterinary professionals achieve this by engaging in continuing education while always focusing on effective communication with our clients. This lends to consistent delivery of medically advanced, optimal treatment plans for each individual patient.
Stephen Zawie, DVM
Dr. Stephen Zawie (pronounced Zay-wee) is a Long Island native. His passion for veterinary medicine began by spending time at his father’s veterinary clinic from a young age. He left his home in Stony Brook to pursue his bachelor’s degree at The University of Maryland, College Park where he majored in Animal Science. He spent the next three years at Ross University in St. Kitts and finished his veterinary education at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
Dr. Zawie was in Baton Rouge during Hurricane Katrina and like many of his colleagues, participated in the rescue and rehabilitation of the animals affected by the storm. One of those animals was badly injured and suffering from dehydration. After making a full recovery, “Pickles” quickly became the newest member of Dr. Zawie’s family. His growing family now includes two adorable sons, Jackson and Austin!
After veterinary school Dr. Zawie was accepted into one of the most prestigious and grueling internship programs at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan. It was during this time that he honed his medical and surgical skills. He spent the next few years as an associate Veterinarian at progressive veterinary hospitals in Manhattan & Bayridge, Brooklyn, before deciding to open his own practice in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. He opened his second location, Greenwood Veterinary Care in Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn in 2018.
Angelo Rosado, DVM
Dr. Angelo Rosado Jr hails from the great borough of Brooklyn. Dr. Rosado has been practicing Veterinary Medicine in the Tri-State area since his graduation from St. George’s University in the summer of 2010. He is thrilled to call BVC his full time home. His genuine, God given desire is to provide compassionate, honest, and loving medical care to the four legged fur babies residing in and around the Bensonhurst area. On Sunday mornings he can be found fellowshipping with loved ones in church, followed by watching football with his brothers (in the winter) and enjoying outdoor walks in the summer.
He loves French bulldogs and has a strong interest in pain management. Dr. Rosado looks forward to developing genuine and honest relationships with pet owners which will then allow him the freedom and flexibility to provide the best care possible to all of his beloved patients.
