Dr. Beth Jamison Education: Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph
Dr. Beth Jamison, in addition to her four year veterinary degree from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph, has a doctoral degree in clinical pathology. This greatly enhances the hospital’s ability to diagnose and manage unusual and difficult cases. In addition, Dr. Beth routinely performs diagnostic ultrasound and cytology, the latter often on a referral basis from other veterinarians.
Both doctors’ additional years of advanced training have created the foundation for a commitment to excellence in veterinary care. On a personal note, the Jamisons are breeders of warm blood horses and Scottish Deerhounds. Along with their three children, they are frequent windsurfers and downhill skiers. Dr. Colleen Scoda Dr. Colleen Scoda is a native of Rochester and has been proudly treating the beloved pets of the Rochester community since 2011. She understands the value a pet brings to life and is honored to be able to care for your loved ones. That’s why she focuses on preventative medicine as the basis for superior veterinary care.
Dr. Scoda graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed her clinical training at NC State College of Veterinary Medicine. She has been practicing Veterinary medicine in Rochester for the last 6 years and is excited to be able to provide care for pets in the Honeoye Falls, Livonia and surrounding areas. Dr. Scoda maintains active memberships in the American Veterinary Association and New Your State Veterinary Medical Association.
While not helping animals, Colleen enjoys running, reading, as well as traveling and hiking with her husband. She has a miniature dachshund, Eugene, who has traveled the world with her and a Caribbean cat, Emma, who is happy with her US home so long as there is a fire to curl up next to. In her free time, she enjoys giving back to the community as an active member of The Junior League of Rochester. Dr. Hillary Wentworth Dr. Wentworth comes to us after practicing emergency medicine in California.

While not helping animals, Hillary enjoys hiking with her dogs Nina and Pug, while her cat, Polly Esther, stays home. Cooking, making pottery and horseback riding are other activities for her days away from the veterinary hospital.
Dr. Wentworth is returning to New York to be closer to family and friends, and to pursue general veterinary practice, rather than urgent care. She hopes that her experience here will allow her to form longer relationships with her patients and clients. She tells us, “I enjoy truly getting to know the families of my patients and maximizing their pets’ happiness and comfort at all stages of their lives.” We are very excited to have Hillary on board!
