Dr. Palamara Joins Surgery Team!

We are happy to announce the newest edition to our Surgery team! Dr. Joseph Palamara joined our team last month and is actively taking surgery appointments.

Dr. Joseph Palamara was born and raised in Middletown, NY. He attended Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY for his undergraduate degree in biology and obtained his DVM from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts, West Indies in 2003.

In 2012 Joe pursued his residency in small animal surgery at the Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers, NY. Prior to joining Upstate Veterinary Specialties in 2018, Joe was a Staff Surgeon at VCA Katonah Bedford Veterinary Center where he offered orthopedic, soft tissue, and minimally-invasive surgeries. In 2016, Joe became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Joe moved to upstate NY to enjoy more time with his family and explore the outdoors. Over the past few years he has become an avid European traveler with his girlfriend, enjoying the region’s history, culture and cuisine. In his spare time, he plays guitar and baseball/softball; discovers new recipes to cook; and hangs out with his vocal 18-year-old DSH, Madeline, from the island of St. Kitts.

We are so excited Dr. Palarmara has joined our team!
