  Dr. Mary Ellen Scully, DVM


Dr. Scully joined Island Animal Hospital full time in 2000, and has been a part of the family ever since. 

She graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida in 1995, followed by an internship at the University of Pennsylvania. 

She took ownership of the practice in early 2022 when Dr. Ochstein decided to hang up his stethoscope, retire, and begin a new adventure.  

Her special interests include internal medicine and ultrasound. In her spare time, Dr. Scully enjoys spending time with her cats Gary, Cole, Wink and Tuna and two dogs, Minnow and Zamboni (all rescued) on the beach or in the garden.

  Dr. Susan Spilker-Ochstein, DVM


Formerly with Calusa Veterinary Center in Boca Raton, Dr. Spilker, a graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, now enjoys working at Island Animal Hospital. 

At home she spends time with beloved sons Christopher and Jacob. 

They enjoy the company of Jessie the Maltese, Chop the lab mix, Oscar their orange cat, and Thor the Bengal mix; all of which were rescues.

  Dr. Jodi Collins, DVM


Dr. Collins graduated from Oregon State University in 2007 and moved to West Palm Beach in 2012. 

Her veterinary interests include dentistry, preventative medicine, and surgery. She is also a passionate advocate for shelter animals and continues to work with shelter groups. 

She enjoys traveling, dancing, and her two rescue dogs, Lulu and Bardet.

  Dr. LeeAnn Ablin, DVM

LeeAnn Ablin, DVM – LeadER Vet
