Meet the Doctor, Shamoon Naseem, PhD, Ms (microbiology and molecular genetics), DVM

Dr. Shamoon Naseem was born in Lahore, Pakistan and knew from his childhood that his heart lay in working with animals. He matriculated at University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences and completed his Masters in Animal Microbiology from the same institute. Dr. Naseem’s passion for research and science took him to the next level and he completed another Masters in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Center of Excellence in Molecular Biology. He received a Fellowship from DAAD and then went to Germany where he earned his PhD in Microbiology and Genetics. Dr. Naseem then got a Fellowship from NIH and came to Long Island, NY. In 2009, he started his postdoctoral research at Microbiology and Molecular Genetics Department at Stony Brook University and wrote multiple research papers. His passion and love for animals made him go through all American Board requirements (ECFVG/AVMA) and after his boards he completed his certification to practice in the USA.

Currently Dr. Naseem is holding a license for animal practice in New York and New Jersey. He practiced general veterinary medicine and surgery for years on Long Island at Banfield Veterinary Hospital in Lake Grove, Vetco Total Care in Patchogue and a few other private practices. He then elected to work at Emergency and the Veterinary Specialty Hospitals of the Long Island, New York. He’s worked for AES Selden, Atlantic Coast New York Veterinary and Animal Specialty in Bohemia and Farmingdale for the last few years.

When Dr. Naseem first came to eastern Long Island area in 2009, he traveled around Riverhead, Aquebogue, Mattituck, the Hamptons and surrounding areas with great, large, animal veterinarian, Dr. Andresen (Late.) He fell in love with this area and decided to have his own practice right here. Dr. Hanusch was retiring so Dr. Naseem took this opportunity and bought Aquebogue Veterinary Hospital, (established veterinary hospital for almost 50-60 years.) Dr. Naseem acquired Aquebogue Veterinary Hospital on October 15, 2021 and has since been renovating, modernizing and growing it ever since. His goal is to continue serving the community and winning the heart of animals and their owners by providing excellent care to our fur babies. Dr. Naseem brings to Aquebogue Veterinary Hospital a vast knowledge of small animal veterinary medicine. His years of general practice, coupled with his time at an advanced specialty hospital and experience practicing emergency medicine, make him a well-rounded and progressive doctor. In his free time, Dr. Naseem enjoys spending time with his family, including his rescue pup, five rescue cats, birds and turtles.
