Our Team

Felicia Cohen, DVM


Dr. Felicia Cohen grew up on the north shore of Long Island and obtained her undergraduate Psychology and Biology degrees from Binghamton University in 2008. She attended veterinary school at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts (in the Caribbean) and completed her clinical year at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 2011.

Dr. Cohen then went on to complete a one-year internship at the Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center of Westbury, rotating through small animal internal medicine, surgery, oncology, neurology, and emergency departments. Prior to opening up her own clinic, she worked as an associate veterinarian at two veterinary hospitals on Long Island. In 2017, she opened Head to Tail Animal Hospital to provide the most up-to-date and compassionate animal care to the community.

Dr. Cohen’s clinical interests include internal medicine and neurology. When not deep in work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, 2 daughters, and two dogs (Sunny, a tripod from a local Long Island rescue and Olive, a rescue from Puerto Rico).


Veterinary Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant

Marisa was born and raised on Long Island but lived in Houston, Texas for the better part of her 20’s. While there, she discovered her passion for rescuing, nurturing and rehoming stray cats and kittens in her spare time because unfortunately, Houston has a very large stray animal population. She then went on to complete schooling to be a veterinary assistant. In her spare time, she enjoys nature hikes, going to the gym and cuddling with her 3 cats (2 rescues from Texas and 1 from a local Long Island rescue).
