Our Doctors

 

Dr. Charles Allen:

 Dr. Allen moved from a small farm in Virginia to Florida in 1998.  He attended high school locally at Admiral Farragut Academy.  He then attended Florida Institute of Technology where he received his Bachelors degree in Pre-med.  Dr. Allen then made the giant leap to move to the beautiful island of St. Kitts to begin his veterinary education at Ross University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008.  Upon finishing at Ross, he went to the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine to complete his clinical studies.  Dr. Allen started working at Animal Hospital of Treasure Island in 2012 and it didn’t take him long to realize that it was the perfect fit.  He loves the beach community and the personal relationships he has built with his clients and their furry loved ones. 

Dr. Allen, along with Dr. Forkner, purchased Animal Hospital of Treasure Island in 2015.  He has always wanted to own a practice and looks forward to continuing to build the veterinary practice while maintaining its sterling reputation in the community.

In his off time, Dr. Allen enjoys boating, fishing, paddle boarding and just about anything that involves water. He also loves to participate in sporting clay competitions throughout the state.  He is a huge Chicago sports fan, following the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks and bleeding Cubbie Blue.    

Dr. Allen has what some might call a zoo at home.  He has a Black lab mix named Cooper, two Dachshunds named Whiskey and Phoebe and four cats named Mao, Charlie Tango, Mittens and Chunky Cat.       

 

Dr. Joci Forkner:

Dr. Forkner Graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She then went on to complete a surgical and internal medicine internship at the University of Florida. Loving Florida, she settled in St. Petersburg and practiced emergency medicine before finding Animal Hospital of Treasure Island. Dr. Forkner fell in love with the patients and the community at Animal Hospital of Treasure Island and feels that a strong staff-client relationship is an important part of your pet's health care. 

Dr. Forkner's veterinary interests include ophthalmology, pain management, canine fitness, and nutrition. When not at work, she can be found running, kayak fishing, paddle boarding, or painting. 

Dr. Forkner has five animals of her own including "Bindi" a Dutch Shepherd mix, "Gillie" a Belgian Malinois, "Shrimp" a chihuahua/frenchie mix, and two cats "Brady" and "Mobitz".
