Andrew Femino

Dr. Andrew Femino

Dr. Andrew Femino grew up at Smithtown Village Animal Hospital. Son of Dr. Joseph Femino, founder of Smithtown Village Animal Hospital, it was apparent from a young age that Dr. Femino would follow in his father’s footsteps. After completing his undergraduate work at SUNY Stony Brook, Dr. Femino graduated from Ross University in 1995, and began working here at Smithtown Village. His professional interests lie in Internal Medicine, Radiography, Surgery and Preventive Care. In his free time, Dr. Femino enjoys spending time with his wife, Dr. Claudine Hoffman, and their three daughters. In addition to that, he is an avid fly fisherman, outdoorsman and enjoys snowboarding.

Her professional interests include Internal Medicine, Radiography, Dermatology and Preventive Care. She is a member of the AVMA, NYSVMS, and LIVMA. When not practicing medicine, Dr. Hoffman plays the role of an active, involved mother to their three daughters.

knitting, and fly fishing with her husband, Dr. Andrew!
