Meet Our Team

Veterinarian: Dr. David Merker

Thank you for visiting our website.
I owe my start in veterinary medicine to my seventh grade biology teacher Joseph Coppola who inspired me to pursue my interest in science along with my love of animals.

I started off doing house calls in Brooklyn and then moved on to the Bide-A-Wee shelter for four years, a non profit organization that rehabilitates and then adopts out stray animals. In 1991 I found a home at Whitestone Animal Hospital and have enjoyed practicing here since.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality veterinary 

healthcare to our clients’ beloved pets in a professional manner with a personal touch.

I look forward to seeing you here with your “furry friend”.
