Dr. Arthur L. Greene

Dr. Arthur L. Greene

Owner, Primary Veterinarian

Dr. Arthur Greene was always fascinated by puzzles while growing up, and he adored the company of any animal he happened to come across. As he got older, his love of biology started to blossom. What better way to combine his passion for science and his love of pets, he thought, than by working in the veterinary field? Dr. Greene’s dream never wavered—now, he’s the owner and primary veterinarian here at Homestead Animal Hospital!

Originally from New York City, Dr. Greene obtained his DVM degree from a university in Italy before returning stateside to begin his career. He joined the Homestead Animal Hospital family in the summer of 2001 and has been caring for the area’s pets and animal parents here ever since. Dr. Greene is particularly fond of using the clinic’s therapeutic services—including the hyperbaric chamber and therapeutic laser—to change patients’ lives for the better. He’s especially proud when he’s able to help therapy animals who in turn provide services for special-needs children.

Dr. Greene is married and has two wonderful children. The family shares their home with Gracie, a miniature Schnauzer; a young Chihuahua named Abel who was born without front limbs; a Calico cat who goes by Cali; Tucker the Siamese mix; a pair of parakeets; and several tropical fish.

When he isn’t spending time with family or tending to pets’ needs here at the hospital, Dr. Greene enjoys skiing—he had some of his best runs in the Italian Alps during his time in veterinary school!—and also likes camping, quilting, and antiquing.

Practice Manager

Yisel has always been interested in medicine and is a true people person—she went to school to become a massage therapist and help others through the power of touch.

A career in the veterinary world was the perfect fit!

Yisel is from San Bernardino, California, and first joined the Homestead Animal Hospital family in the spring of 2008 after being referred by a fellow staff member. She started as a Client Service Representative before becoming Receptionist Manager, then moved into her current position of Office Manager for the clinic.

She never forgot the innate passion she felt for animals and their well-being, though.

Now, she’s happy to serve pet owners and their loveable companions as a member of the hospital’s front-desk team.

Cristin is a native Floridian and first heard about an opening here at Homestead Animal Hospital through a friend of a friend. She joined the hospital family in early 2017 and has been a part of the team ever since. One of Cristin’s favorite aspects of her work is the opportunity she gets to meet all kinds of people and pets on a daily basis, and the most rewarding part of her job is seeing pets leave the clinic happier and healthier than when they arrived.

When she’s not here at the hospital, Cristin enjoys gardening and spending time with her family and pets at home. She and her husband share their lives with four cats—Leoncio, Simba, Porky, and Angus—as well as two dogs who go by Marlin and Terry.

Cynthia

Cynthia

Head Veterinary Technician

Cynthia grew up right here in Homestead, and her family always kept pets around the house.

Izzy

Izzy

Veterinary Technician

Izzy joined Homestead Animal Hospital in 2019 as a receptionist but quickly started cross-training in the tech team – because she loves the fast-paced environment of being a technician and the variety of tasks that must be performed with each patient. Izzy has always had a passion for helping animals. Her family nick named her the “the dog whisperer”. Helpting animals in need an being their “voice” is a huge part of Izzy’s life. She enjoys giving lots of love and cuddles to all the patients and always makes sure they’re comfortable before and after any procedure. She is always great at documenting and making memories behind the scenes in the hospital, and if the owners give permission she will take cute pictures and videos of every patient, whether it be giving lots of slobbery kisses or getting treats for being such a good boy/girl!

She is currently a dog mom to 8 fur babies (three of whom are rescues) Minnie, Luke & Leia – Luke and Leia – Luke and Leia have 5 puppies – Cherri, Kiwii, Trooper, Mango & Rocki!

Most of her time is spent at work but when she’s now you can find her spending time with her family and her fur babies, out on the boat, at the gym or riding around in her Jeep!

Izzy can’t see herself doing anything else other than working with animals – she says it’s much more than a career, It’s her passion!

After coming to the United States from Colombia, Patricia settled in West Virginia, getting her foot in the door of the animal-care world by pet-sitting whenever she could.
