Dr. Claudia Zamora
Dr. Claudia Zamora was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, and from very early in life, she knew that her destiny would be devoted to helping the ones that don’t have a voice.
She graduated from the University of La Salle, Colombia in 2000 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine. Soon after graduating, she followed her dreams and moved to the United States, continuing to pursue her goals and expand her professional development. At that time, she began the challenging, but rewarding process of attending the Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates program at the University of Florida. Upon completion, she was accepted into an internship program in Emergency and Critical Care at Veterinary Referral Center in Norwalk, CT. This internship experience inspired her to continue working in Emergency and Critical Care. For more than a decade she practiced at some of the most highly regarded emergency hospitals in New Jersey before transitioning to General Medicine. In early 2019, Dr. Zamora and her family relocated back to Florida. In August 2021 she and her husband Anthony Esposito purchased Grand Central Veterinary Hospital from Dr. A. Barbara Antz-Hanson. They are honored to continue the legacy of providing excellence in pet healthcare.
Dr. Zamora has a strong interest in soft tissue surgery, emergency and internal medicine and always strives to provide ethical, honest, and compassionate care for all her patients. In her free time, she loves traveling, running, yoga, spending quality time with family and friends and her beloved rescue poodle/bichon mix named Juan Gabriel.
Dr. A. Barbara Antz-Hanson
A native of Saint Petersburg, Dr. Antz-Hanson graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture, majoring in Microbiology and Cell Science as well as Animal Science. In 1990 she graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Antz-Hanson owned and operated Animal Hospital of Pinellas Point from December 2003 until December 2018. Out of necessity, she relocated the practice to the Historic Kenwood District and Grand Central District of Downtown St. Petersburg in December 2018, and rebranded the practice as Grand Central Veterinary Hospital. In August 2021 Dr. Antz-Hanson sold Grand Central Veterinary Hospital to Dr. Claudia Zamora. Dr. Antz-Hanson will be working part-time at Grand Central Veterinary Hospital, continuing the tradition of caring for her patients with skill, love and compassion.
In addition to Companion Animal Medicine, Dr. Antz-Hanson has 26 years of experience in Emergency and Critical Care Medicine. She served on the board of the Pinellas Animal Foundation for several years encouraging pet care in local schools and the community. She is also an active member in professional veterinary associations such as the FVMA, AVMA and PCVMA.
