Practice History & Profile

Practice History

Art Museum Veterinary Center is passionate about delivering progressive, personalized patient care and exceptional client service, while developing active community relationships.

We are located in the Fairmount / Art Museum neighborhood of Philadelphia. Our urban professional community is young, fast-paced, and intelligent.

We opened the doors to our first location, Northern Liberties Veterinary Center, in September of 2014. We then opened our second practice, Art Museum Veterinary Center, in February of 2018. We have had continued growth at both locations.

Currently, between the two hospitals, we have five veterinarians and are looking to add a sixth. Both practices are AAHA-accredited. Between the two locations, we have the latest equipment including digital radiology (AMVC and NLVC), ultrasound and echocardiogram services (AMVC), laser therapy (NLVC), regenerative medicine (PRP) (AMVC), in-house laboratory and a dental suite with digital dental radiology (AMVC and NLVC).

We pride ourselves on having exceptional support staff, the newest technology including being completely paperless, and implementing the latest techniques in diagnosing and treating our patients. We enjoy an excellent clientele that treats their pets like family. For those who want to learn and grow, this is the place.

Inside the Hospital


Hope A. Coleman, VMD
Dr. Hope Coleman graduated with a VMD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012. She then went on to complete a one year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Newark Animal Hospital. While at the Newark Animal hospital, she received advanced training with board certified specialists in the areas of surgery, internal medicine, and emergency and critical care. Dr. Coleman also completed post-graduate training in dentistry. Though she has had extensive post-graduate technical training, Dr. Coleman believes that excellent client communication and exceptional patient care are the most important skills that a veterinarian can possess. Dr. Coleman prides herself in working with each owner and pet to find the best solution to their specific health care needs.
Maya Pirok, VMD
Dr. Maya Pirok earned her VMD in small animal medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006. Growing up in Los Angeles, she graduated with honors from University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Through post-graduate work at the Animal Dental Training Center, Dr. Pirok strengthened her skills in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery. She is also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Delaware Valley Veterinary Medical Association. Dr Pirok has a special interest in soft-tissue surgery, but feels that the principles of medicine are best implemented through a wellness program of interventional care as a way to develop a healthy lifestyle for your pet. It was during her own wellness initiative that Dr. Pirok met her future husband, Brad. They met training for the Philadelphia marathon while she was in graduate school. They now live in Old City with their three children and Bicamouth, an 8 year old domestic short haired cat that she rescued while in Veterinary school. When she is not working, Dr. Pirok enjoys long-distance running, teaching her children piano, and skiing in Vermont. In 2014 Dr. Pirok founded Northern Liberties Veterinary Center. She now splits her time between Art Museum Veterinary Center, and it’s sister practice in Northern Liberties.
