Dr. Kenneth Gantt is co-owner of the Veterinary Center of East Northport. A general practitioner, he opened the hospital with Dr. Margaret Ullmann in October 2004.
A native of Long Island, Dr. Gantt has loved caring for animals ever since he was a child. He remembers volunteering to take class pets home on weekends, holidays and summer vacations (even though his mom didn't appreciate the boa constrictor in his bedroom). He enjoys the challenges that come with veterinary medicine, but most of all, he enjoys the relationship that he forms with clients and their pets.
Dr. Gantt completed his undergraduate education at Cornell University, where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science in 1989. He continued his veterinary education at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and was awarded his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1993.

Ophthalmology, cardiology and surgery are among Dr. Gantt's many professional interests. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Long Island Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association.
Dr. Gantt and his wife, Gena, share their home with two dogs, Oakley and Sophie, and two cats, Marbles and Jacks. When he's not busy with his duties at the hospital, he enjoys traveling, walking and running. He also loves spending time in Manhattan and going to Yankees games.

Dr. Margaret UllmannVeterinarian/Practice Owner
A native New Yorker, Dr. Margaret Ullmann has cared for pets as a general practitioner at the Veterinary Center of East Northport since she and Dr. Gantt opened the hospital in 2004.
Dr. Ullmann has loved working with animals ever since she was a child and knew early on she wanted to become a veterinarian. She enjoys getting to know all of the families and pets that come into the hospital and finds diagnosing and treating pets to be both challenging and rewarding. There is nothing more gratifying for her than seeing pets leave the hospital healthy and happy.
She attended Union College, where she majored in Biology and German. Dr. Ullmann received her Bachelor's Degree in Biology in 1982 and continued her education at Cornell University, where she received her Master's Degree in Physiology (with a focus on reproductive physiology) in 1986. She went on to attend Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and was awarded her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1990.
Dr. Ullmann has a wide range of professional interests, but is particularly interested in reproductive medicine, dermatology, internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, nutrition and preventive care. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the New York State Veterinary Medical Association, the Long Island Veterinary Medical Association and the Cornell Feline Health Center.
When she's not caring for pets at the hospital, Dr. Ullmann enjoys a number of hobbies, including boating, kayaking and resistance training. Yoga, travel, and art history are also among her many interests. At home, she enjoys the companionship of her three dogs, Evie, a Chinese-Crested Hairless; Henry, a Shepherd mix, and Willow, a Golden Retriever and retired breeding dog from the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind.

Dr. Andrea BarrosVeterinarian
Dr. Andrea Barros joined the Veterinary Center of East Northport in the summer of 2010. A general practitioner, she also has special interests in neurology and radiology.
Dr. Barros grew up in Huntington Station, New York, and began volunteering at animal shelters at a very young age. Many of the animals she cared for were strays or came from abusive environments. Since that time, she has always wanted to help improve the lives of animals and, subsequently, the lives of their owners. The most fulfilling moments for Dr. Barros are joyful reunions between owners and their pets after the pet has recovered from life-threatening illness or injury.
Dr. Barros graduated from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2004. During her studies in Environmental Biology, she earned an achievement award in wildlife field research and population management. Dr. Barros was awarded her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. During her internship, Dr. Barros gained experience in small animal emergencies as well as internal medicine, surgery, neurology, ophthalmology, dentistry and dermatology. Even before earning her DVM, she observed and volunteered at the Veterinary Center of East Northport, Long Island Veterinary Specialists, and the Cornell Cooperative Extension Suffolk County Farm and Education Center.
She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association.
Two cats, Jack and Isis, share her home along with Chester, a Chow Chow/Shepherd mix, and Sophie, a Chow Chow. When she's not at the Veterinary Center, Dr. Barros can be found hiking, kayaking, or swimming. She also has an interest in photography and reads suspense and thriller novels.
