    Brad Seaman, DVM

    Veterinarian
    For Dr. Brad Seaman, a general practitioner and founder of Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital, being a veterinarian is in his DNA. His father was a veterinarian and he grew up around animals. "I like solving complex and important problems," Dr. Seaman said about what motivates him in his work. "Trying to improve the quality of life for both the pets and their owners makes my career very rewarding."

    Dr. Seaman grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and earned his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was a member of the Golden Key Honor Society. He graduated from Ross University's School of Veterinary Medicine with his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. His professional interests are in dentistry, ultrasonography, and surgery. Dr. Seaman is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the New York State Veterinary Society.

    One of his most memorable moments while earning his veterinary degree was an externship in Chiang Mai, Thailand during which he assisted the local veterinarians in the medical and surgical care of elephants. "The life of a veterinarian," he said, "is never boring."

    Dr. Seaman has a number of pets, including a cat named Captain Pickles, who was adopted from St. Kitts in the West Indies, and a dog named Kaya, rescued while Dr. Seaman was employed in his first veterinary position in Southampton, New York.

    Bunni Tan, DVM

    Veterinarian
    Dr. Bunni Tan is a general practitioner who joined Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital in April 2010. She grew up in Queens and as a child she read the novels of James Herriot, author of "All Creatures Great and Small." "They involved me in a wonderful world where the lives of animals and people were deeply intertwined—sometimes elbow deep!" Dr. Tan said. "The stories that emerged were alternately hilarious, sweet, poignant, or sad. But they were always memorable."

    Dr. Tan did her undergraduate work at Brandeis University, where she earned her bachelor's degree in biology and graduated with honors in 1997. As a student, she worked as a kennel assistant at a small animal hospital outside Boston, MA, and she also volunteered at the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition shelter in Williamsburg and at North Shore Animal League in Port Washington, Long Island.

    Dr. Tan earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University in 2001. She has worked at the Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital's full-service veterinary hospital and animal shelter and as an emergency veterinarian in Brooklyn during nights and weekends. Her professional interests include veterinary acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. Dr. Tan is also USDA Certified and can provide international health certificates for pet owners who are taking their pets abroad.

    "Everyday is different, and working with animals is very rewarding," said Dr. Tan. "Every animal and every client has a unique relationship and special bond, and it's important for me to honor and acknowledge that."

    Dr. Tan has an FIV-positive cat, Herman.
