Dr. Lee B Stuart , DVM
Safe Haven Veterinary Hospital was started out of a lifelong ambition by Dr. Stuart in September, 1997 to operate his own veterinary facility. Dr. Stuart was born and raised in the suburbia of Miami, Florida, then moved to Miramar in his mid teens. After attending local colleges in Miami and Boca Raton, he moved to Gainesville, where he finished his Bachelor in Science degree, and then attended the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida (Go Gators!!!) from 1982 - 1986. After graduation with his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Stuart moved to Ormond Beach (where he still resides) to take his first job as an associate veterinarian.
Safe Haven Veterinary Hospital opened its doors September 22nd, 1997 in Palm Coast and Dr. Stuart has been keeping busy running our newer state of the art facility at 30 Lupi Court since it opened in May 2007. He is Past-President of the Volusia County Veterinary Association, and also served on the Florida Veterinary Medical Association’s Budget and Finance Committee. When he is away from the office, Dr. Stuart enjoys biking, reading, spending time with his dog, and traveling.
Dr. Stuart sends out his heartfelt thanks to the clientele of the Safe Haven Veterinary Hospital for their friendship, warmth, love, and support during his years serving you in Flagler County.
Dr. Andrea Puckett, DVM
Dr. Andrea Puckett was born and raised outside Atlanta, Georgia. From a very early age, she knew she wanted to be a part of the medical profession. Growing up, she spent most of her free time riding and showing hunter jumper horses and participating in the 4-H Horse Club. Both of these activities helped establish a passion for veterinary medicine. Dr. Puckett attended The University of Georgia where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Animal and Dairy Science. She loved the school so much that she decided to stay and complete her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine as well. Go Dawgs!!!
Following vet school, she completed additional training in the form of a large animal internship at Texas A&M University after which, Dr. Puckett moved to Florida to be with her now husband, Luke. They currently reside in Flagler Beach with their two dogs Sammy and Phinn, and their bird and fish. Dr. Puckett also has a horse that does not live with them!
