Who are we?


Long Island Animal Surgery was created to provide low cost spays and neuters and affordable general and major surgeries in a friendly, compassionate and professional environment. We offer Orthopedic Surgeries such as CRUCIATE Surgery performed by a Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon at Prices typically much lower than the large specialty centers offer.

Steven Kolbert DVM

Dr Kolbert has worked extensively  in Emergency Medicine and Clinical Practice as well as in Public Health as one of NY City's Dept of Health Veterinarians. He worked with  former owner Dr. Mary Harrison in the 1990's when they both were at East Islip Animal Hopital and is pleased to continue the philosophy she championed here at LIAS of offering excellent surgical care that is affordable in a modern well equipped facility. Dr Kolbert has extensive experience in routine soft tissue surgeries including spays and neuters as well as abdominal surgeries  and growth removals.
