Medical Director & Veterinarian
Dr. Raphael Z. Gilbert, DVM, MS

Dr. Gilbert became the owner of Mamaroneck Veterinary Hospital on February 9, 2011. He brought with him a unique style, insight and attitude about progressive veterinary medicine, and excitement for the opportunity to provide his services in such a wonderful community.  While Dr. Gilbert continues to work full time as a veterinarian and medical director of the Hospital, he has relinquished ownership of the practice as of June 16, 2021; giving up some of the administrative burdens of ownership in exchange for more time with family.

Dr. Gilbert has an exceptional background in veterinary medical and surgical care. He graduated at the top of his class with honors from Ross University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998, after completing his year of clinical rotations at North Carolina State University CVM. He is experienced with domestic, exotic, and wildlife cases both locally and abroad, and has extensively traveled volunteering his skills and expertise to care for animals in less developed countries and rural regions. His special interests include internal medicine, surgery, immunology, nutrition, and animal welfare. His unique analytical perspective and scientific background has made him a resource for other veterinarians seeking consultations as well as clients seeking second opinions about their pet’s care.

Prior to his veterinary studies, Dr. Gilbert also earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Cornell University. A USDA Accredited Veterinarian, Dr. Gilbert has the authority to issue international health certificates for pets traveling to foreign countries.

Dr. Gilbert and his wife Lori live in Stamford, CT with their two daughters, Ilana and Sarah. Their pets — MooMoo Snuggles the cat, Bella the Beagle, and Sinbad the Amazon parrot — enjoy the benefits of life in the vet’s house too! During his leisure time, Dr. Gilbert can be found kayaking, hiking, gardening, swing dancing, making music, and happily playing with the kids.
