Garden City Veterinary Care

Serving the pets of Mineola.


At Garden City Veterinary Care, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

Since the beginning, Garden City Veterinary Care has been owned and operated by Dr. Raymond Polley since 1996. This state-of-the-art veterinary hospital utilizes the highest standards of veterinary medicine & management. We are exclusively a small animal clinic. Dr. Polley, Dr. Buscemi, Dr. Quim, and Dr. Gunsalus are proud of the services they offer to clients and their pets.

Extensive Services

Our services and treatment options are grounded upon a solid foundation of wellness care and prevention.

Our Goals

  • We will show compassion and genuine concern for our patients’ health and well-being
  • To provide technical expertise both professionally and with state-of-the-art equipment
  • We will maintain the highest standards of cleanliness
  • To provide convenience to our clients

Most of all, we accomplish these goals using a team effort approach. From our dedicated receptionists to our highly trained technicians to Dr. Polley, Dr. Buscemi, Dr. Quim, and Dr. Gunsalus, we work with both the patient and the client in a friendly, sincere, and caring manner.

Dr Polley and his staff have been amazing and I would definitely recommend bringing your animal/s here. They are patient, kind and very thorough.

Dr Raymond Polley is AMAZING! I recently had to bring in my dog Jaks for an emergency vet visit. Not only was the waiting room spotless, the staff was warm and friendly.

Everyone at GCVC LOVES pets and treats each one like they would their own animals! That spoke volumes to me & why I love this practice so much!
