Meet Our Team

Dr. Erin McNamara & Dr. Americo Abadia

Dr. Americo Abadia

Education: Ross University Veterinary School, Auburn University

Since childhood I showed a strong interest and bond with animals. Born and raised in the tropical island of Puerto Rico, I had the opportunity of owning multiple dogs, rabbits, chickens and cats that seeded my interest in veterinary medicine. I completed a DVM degree from Ross University in 2005 and performed my clinical study year at Auburn University. In Auburn, I married Dr. McNamara and currently enjoy spending time with our daughters, Elora and Isabella. For the past 10 years I have been practicing strictly small animal medicine where my strong interpersonal skills, compassion and love for animals have been very rewarding. With special interest in diagnostic imaging and surgery, I have spent the last 5 years performing ultrasounds, practicing high quality medicine and performing routine surgeries and some other special surgical procedures in the area of Tampa, Florida. With this experience, I plan to bring new ideas, compassion and quality medicine to the existing Surfside clients as well as Stuart residents.

Dr. Erin McNamara

Education: Ross University Veterinary School, Auburn University

Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, my first experiences were with my family pets and working with and caring for thoroughbred horses. I attended the University of Kentucky for my B.S. degree in animal science with heavy concentration in biology. I then ventured to Ross University Veterinary school and was blessed to meet my future husband Dr. Abadia. My last clinical year was at Auburn University, where my husband and I were married. We currently have one 4 year old daughter (Elora), an 8 month old daughter (Isabella), 2 dogs (Chalupa and Pepe) and 1 cat (Juan).

Since 2005 my focus has been practicing high quality medicine for cats and dogs and trying to educate my patient’s parents so they can be active participants in their pets care.  I look forward to serving the community here in Stuart and getting to know all of you and I hope to meet you soon.

Rachael, Technician

I have been working at Surfside for a while now and have loved every minute of it. I was born in Miami, Fl to Cuban parents. Since I was a little girl I have always loved animals and was also an avid equestrian.  I was a foster mom for several years and placed over 14 animals into their forever home.  I graduated with a Biology degree from Florida State University in 2009 and moved to the Stuart area in 2012. I currently have 6 pets that call me mom. I have 2 dogs- Madison and Penny, 2 cats- Rosie and Taco, 1 rabbit- Figs, and 1 off the track thoroughbred that I rescued- “Go Fox Go” aka Foxy.

Mallory, Technician

I started working at Surfside Pet Hospital two years ago. Growing up on a farm I have always had a passion for animals of all sizes. I graduated from Penn Foster with a degree in both canine behavior/training and pet grooming. When not at work I train service dogs for people with disabilities and enjoy the outdoors with my husband and 2 kids, our dogs - Lennon and Twain, and never boring at home with my talking macaw and African gray parrot's!

Shirley- Kennel Technician

I was born and raised in Florida and grew up in Hobe Sound. I am one of the kennel techs that take care of your fur-baby while you are away on vacation. I’ve been working with animals for a while now and I found my way to Surfside in mid 2015. I have been here ever since. While I am a big animal enthusiast, I enjoy sketching as well. I have a German Shepherd mix named Pilot and a Chihuahua mix named Scrappy, both rescued. I also have two cats named Socks and Zorro.
