Meet The Veterinarians at Center City Veterinary Hospital
Michael Cohen, VMD
Michael Cohen earned his VMD in small animal medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002. Raised just outside of Philadelphia, he graduated with honors from the University of Delaware, and received special distinction for his research in dairy cattle nutrition.
After graduation, Dr. Cohen was an associate veterinarian at a small practice in Delaware County. In addition to his experience in private practice, Dr. Cohen has a strong background in emergency medicine. Working as an emergency clinician at the Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware for more than six years, he gained vital experience dealing with traumatic injuries, metabolic and endocrine diseases, toxin exposure, obstetrical emergencies, among others. Dr. Cohen was inspired to go into private practice after working with animals whose emergency room visit could have been prevented with proper preventative care at their regular veterinarian’s office. Dr. Cohen created Center City Veterinary Hospital to provide quality, modern, and compassionate care to the dogs and cats of Philadelphia.
As a member of the Veterinary Information Network, Dr. Cohen participates in an online community of veterinarians and board certified specialists who share cases and information. This allows him to provide your pet with the collective experience of over 42,000 veterinarians who love what they do and love to do it well! Dr. Cohen is also a member of the Delaware Valley Academy of Veterinary Medicine, a seminar series to advance knowledge of small animal medicine.
A man of many hobbies, Dr. Cohen is a novice urban beekeeper, kept chickens (for eggs, not meat!) during his veterinary school days in West Philadelphia, maintains a garden with the help of a worm composting bin, and enjoys starting, but only occasionally finishing, projects in his home. Dr. Cohen resides in Bella Vista with his wife Rebecca, his two children Adina and Benjamin. His four legged kids were both adopted from SPCAs: Roger is a mixed breed adopted from Grenada while Dr. Cohen volunteered for the Grenada SPCA and Jake is a Bernese mix adopted by his wife from a shelter in Indiana. Although Jake has recently passed on, he is always with us in spirit.
Beverly Jogan, VMD
Beverly Jogan graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 after completing her undergraduate degree at Penn where she studied biology and physical anthropology. She is originally from Reading, PA but also had the opportunity to live in South America, where she fell in love with animals by visiting llamas, penguins and toucans in their natural habitats. After completing vet school, Dr. Jogan practiced at a small animal hospital in New Jersey, and later enjoyed working with veterinary students at an animal shelter during a year spent in North Carolina. She has also volunteered on several spay/neuter clinic trips in underserved areas in the US and abroad. Dr. Jogan has special interests in pain management, geriatric medicine, preventive care, and ophthalmology.
Dr. Jogan lives in Queen Village with her husband Keith, baby boy Colin, and their cat Simon. She loves to travel, plays the cello in a Baroque music group, and enjoys sewing and other crafts.
Dr. Tamara Mengine, DVM, DABVP
In 2014, Dr. Mengine became one of the few veterinarians in the area to achieve board-certification in Canine and Feline Practice, from the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. Dr. Mengine has special interests in hospice and geriatric care, internal medicine, and cardiology. In her spare time, Dr. Mengine is active in Pals for Life, a local pet therapy organization, where she serves as a volunteer and board member. Her hobbies include gardening, hiking, traveling, and spending time with her family. Along with her human family, Dr. Mengine shares her home with three canine companions - Siberian Husky Oz, retired racing greyhound Belle, and cattle dog-mix Pip - as well as two Red-eared Slider turtles.
