Dr Scott Roberts

After many years of study, Scott Roberts, a local, graduated from Melbourne University in 2016 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.  The new title of DVM has been introduced superseding the BVSc title.  Upon graduation, Scott began with us here at Greensborough in December 2016.

During his clinical placements, Scott experienced a wide variety in types of practices.  He spent time at “The Cat Clinic”, CARE Specialist Centre but the most rewarding would be Ao Chalong Animal Hospital in Phuket where he earnt a scholarship to participate. The language barrier with Thai Vets and clients was challenging, but the experience to treat animals without the modern facilities and equipment was a great learning curve.  These opportunities to compare clinics internationally make surgeons have more appreciation for the standard of care we are able to offer in Australia. 

Outside of the Veterinary world, Scott is an active athlete.  He is a long serving member of the Kew-Box Hill Hockey club as a player and where he has coached teenagers, teaching skills and tactics.  He also turns these skills to cricket when time allows. At Uni he was Vice President of the Wildlife Appreciation Group and has been an Outdoor Leader, teaching students camping and navigation skills. So, really, Scott will tackle any outdoor challenge or sport that his new roster allows.

Scott has come to us as generally “a nice fella”. He is a great communicator, very knowledgeable for the time he has been graduated and importantly the nurses think he is wonderful.  Our nurses are generally a great judge of quality vets and they look after Scott because he is genuine and caring in how he treats animals.  Scott’s particular interests, at this stage, include feline medicine-his research project at Uni was on Chronic Kidney Disease in cats and soft tissue surgery. 

Scott is available at Greensborough on a fulltime basis.
