Trusted Board-Certified Veterinary Neurologist in Miami, FL

Home » Miami Veterinary Neurologist

Miami and Boynton Beach Locations: Downtown Miami


We’re available day or night, 365 days a year for neurological emergencies.

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Michael Wong and Dr. Myri-ann Melendez, Southeast Veterinary Neurology (SEVN) was the first hospital in Miami, FL to exclusively treat neurological disorders in dogs and cats and the only hospital in South Florida with in-house high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). With the addition of Dr. Nicholas DePompa in 2015, SEVN became the only hospital in South Florida with a team of board-certified veterinary neurologists available by appointment 24/7.

Since our founding, we have become the leader in neurosurgery, advanced imaging, and veterinary neurology, and we’ve helped over 20,000 pets recover the ability to walk. But we're more than pet neurologists. We're pet parents, too. We know how precious your pets are to you and your family, and we treat them with the compassion and kindness they deserve. We were built on the promises we keep every day: to be there when families need us; to treat each pet as if it were our own; and to offer our community the latest technology, expertise, and techniques in veterinary neurology.
