Dr. Erin Keefe
Dr. Erin Keefe is originally from Buffalo, NY and moved to New York City to attend college at Fordham University.

Dr. Gabrielle Fadl
Dr. Gabrielle Fadl was born and raised in Rockland County, NY. She attended college at New York University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Education. Knowing she wanted to work with animals, she decided to leave the field of education to shadow and assist veterinarians and animal care workers while going back to school to complete the prerequisites required for veterinary school.
Looking for a change of scenery, Dr. Fadl earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas (The Little Apple). During her time there, she volunteered some of her free time performing spays and neuters for the local shelters and humane society, and acquired a special interest in anesthesia, pain management, and internal medicine. She also conducted research and was published on topics in parasitology and parasitic diseases.
Following graduation, and missing The Big Apple far too much, Dr. Fadl was accepted into an intensive year-long internship in General Medicine and Surgery at Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists (now BluePearl-Downtown). Here, she often had sole case responsibility for many emergency patients, and worked alongside specialists in the field of internal medicine, critical care, surgery, cardiology, dentistry, ophthalmology, and neurology. She honed her clinical skills and learned effective communication with clients, placing a strong emphasis on education and learning. After internship, she worked at a fast-paced small animal practice in Brooklyn, NY for two years before joining the team at Upper East Veterinary Center.
When not at work, you can find Dr. Fadl wandering the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan and eating all the food the city has to offer. She loves to travel, cook, bake, craft, hike, and spend time outdoors. She shares her home with her pointy-eared terrier, Rocko and her two spunky cats, PC and Fang. She is excited to meet you and your pets, and to provide the highest quality of care possible.
