His passion for veterinary medicine started in Argentina, during an equestrian showjumping competition. Dr. Mastrovito saw a horse with an injury on its face, and the veterinarian that was called fixed the horse in a matter of minutes. During his undergraduate degree he began volunteering at a general practice small animal hospital, quickly accepted a part time position, and worked as a vet tech from 2012 until 2016 when he started vet school. He has also worked as a tech every summer of vet school.
Dr. Mastrovito’s work as a vet tech confirmed he was in the right field, but he knew he had chosen the right profession when he completed his first surgery. Every time he performs surgery, he is reminded of why he chose this career. He is fascinated by all aspects of veterinary medicine, but his professional interests reside in small companion and exotic animal medicine, with a special interest soft tissue surgery. The last hospital he worked at as a vet tech was owned by a specialist in feline / canine / exotic animals, as well as in surgery. This veterinarian is extremely knowledgeable and has an incredible work ethic, thus setting the standard Dr. Mastrovito strive’s for in his own career. His first priority has and will always be his patients health and welfare, so seeing his skill and expertise lead to an overwhelmingly positive outcome in his cases has fueled me to do the same. He is a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the British Veterinary Association, and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Dr. Mastrovito’s father is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army and the son of Italian immigrants. His mother was born and raised in Spain, and it is thanks to her that he is bilingual in English and Spanish. His brother is a professional musician with a master’s degree in classical guitar performance.
Outside of work, he is passionate about health and fitness, having been an avid lifter for over a decade. When he is not at work or in the gym, Dr. Mastrovito enjoys being out on the water paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, or on the beach with a good book. He also enjoys traveling abroad and experiencing new places.
