Come down to sunny Florida and work with our team at FVBS! 

Who We Are

Florida Veterinary Behavior Service is a 4 doctor behavior specialty practice led by Dr. Lisa Radosta. We have rounds 3 days a week; utilize applications to share and store articles, ideas and case discussions with ease; and have a library of videos, articles and textbooks for reference so that all doctors have access to learning opportunities. We care about the quality of life of our team members and make every effort to have a flexible schedule that suits their needs while continuing to serve our patients. 

We have a support team including veterinary technicians, client care representatives and doctor’s assistants to support the doctors, clients and patients in an innovative, effective and efficient way striving to provide exceptional client and patient care.

We strive to give our doctors a quality of life that they enjoy with flexibility in their scheduling, no weekend or holiday work and real vacation (no emergencies). When you are off clinics, you are truly off. Our support staff and team of doctors can handle emergency rx, issues with clients and patient needs when other doctors are out of office. Enjoy your weekends. We got this. 

Where we Are

FVBS is located in Southeast Florida where the temperature rarely drops below 60 degrees and you are never more than a short distance from the beach. Take a day trip to Miami or the Florida Keys. Go snorkeling, surfing, diving or for a hike in the Everglades. Swim with the manatees in Florida’s beautiful natural springs. The sun is out and the sky is blue almost every day of the year. Want to stay in the air conditioning? Southeast Florida has some of the best shopping around. We currently have two locations (West Palm Beach and Coral Springs). Our Coral Springs location is within Coral Springs Animal Hospital, a large, 24 hour specialty referral center.

What We Stand For

FVBS is committed to improving the quality of life of people and companion animals through excellence in delivering high-quality, compassionate behavioral wellness care, expanding the horizons of behavioral knowledge through educating and training veterinarians, their teams, and educating pet parents.

How We Practice

Follow-up doesn’t have to suck the life out of you. We strive to have enough trained, team member support for our doctors so that they can spend their time practicing medicine and spend less time on records and client follow-up. To facilitate meaningful and frequent changes to patient treatment plans without a lot of email and phone back and forth, we offer 15 minute telehealth rechecks. We have in-house behavior modification support staff. 

We see our patients frequently facilitating a strong client-doctor bond. Generally, our clients live close enough that they can return for in-person rechecks, however telehealth rechecks are commonly offered and account for approximately 35% of our appointments. Finally, we offer doctor-to-doctor telehealth consultations to improve the lives of animals who do not live close to our offices. 

Our referral community is very supportive. It is commonplace for our service to see puppies, recently adopted dogs and cats and patients early in the progression of emotional disorders. In addition, we have a robust list of training partners to whom we refer for behavior modification. 

We have 100+ client education handouts which are electronically generated for ease of distribution. Our website is educational and functional, consistently attracting over 8,000 users per month from all over the world. Our electronic medical records system has been customized to suit our needs as a behavior specialty practice.
