Dr. Peter Romano

Dr. Peter Romano, born and raised in Westchester, provides a personalized and thoughtful style of medicine at Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital. Dr. Romano grew up in White Plains and attended Stepinac High School. He went on to receive his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Manhattan College in the Bronx. After a short stint as a veterinary assistant, he went on to attend Cornell University where he earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. After graduation, he completed a small animal-focused internship at Long Island Veterinary Specialists Referral and Emergency Hospital in Plainview, New York. During his internship training, Dr. Romano received advanced training in both medical and surgical patient care.

Dr. Patricia Doherty

Originally from Long Island, Dr. Patricia Doherty earned her B.S. in Biology at Stony Brook University, and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. After completing a demanding one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Oradell Animal Hospital in New Jersey, Dr. Doherty worked in emergency medicine and small animal/exotic practices in Westchester and Connecticut before joining the team at Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital. With a special interest in internal medicine and pain management in our older patients, her goal is to keep your pets healthy well into their golden years. Dr. Doherty’s focus is on creating individual treatment plans for each patient while considering client concerns every step of the way.

Dr. Mary Raum

Dr. Mary Raum always knew she wanted to combine the challenge of medicine with her love of animals. Now she has the opportunity to help her patients live their best lives by practicing individualized, thorough, high-quality medicine.

Growing up in Sullivan County, NY, Dr. Raum has fond memories of helping her father on their family farm and creating artwork with her mother, inspiring her to pursue equestrian sports with her pony Kindred Spirit and eventually leading to them competing in nationally ranked USEF shows. It was during these early days of helping around the riding center that Dr. Raum realized that she was going to pursue veterinary medicine as a career. Dr. Raum received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Cornell University, receiving honors and distinction in research. She then went on to attend Atlantic Veterinary College on Prince Edward Island (home of Anne of Green Gables) where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. She started her career in New Jersey where she gained 4 years of valuable practical experience before moving on to Orange County, NY where she served as head surgeon for 3 years.

  • review rating 5  Dr. Romano was so gentle with Zoey (a super nervous IG). He truly listened to all of my concerns and was super helpful in answering my questions. It is very apparent that he genuinely cares for and about animals. I felt extremely safe with Dr. Romano and his team taking care of my precious little one.

    review rating 5  I can't say enough good things about Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital. Under Dr. Green and now Dr. Romano—a comfortingly seamless transition—the crew there has cared for our full spectrum of pets, from seniors to babies. Dr. Romano is extremely generous with his time, answering all of our questions and talking until we're satisfied that we know the best path forward for our animals. They care for our pets with real love, and it shows—and they always go the extra mile for us.

  • review rating 5  Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital has never once disappointed me. They genuinely care for your pet and have their best interest in mind. Do not hesitate to bring your furry friend here because they'll be well taken care of. The vets, office staff, and techs are all caring and amazing. We are so grateful for them! They even send out informative emails to keep pet owners abreast of recalls, pet health information, and more.

    review rating 5  Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital helped me with bringing my dog and cat overseas - ensuring they had all their required vaccinations, health certificates, and USDA notary approvals. The process was transparent and easy! I was able to call with initial information and set up an appointment within a week. My appointment went very efficiently and they even served coffee in the waiting area! The staff was so friendly and helpful from the receptionists to the veterinarians. I worked with Dr. Peter Romano and he was great! My pets both loved him and I loved his quick turnaround (as the health certs are required to be completed within 10 days of travel)! We had such a great experience here that I will be returning to Sleepy Hollow for all my pets' needs upon our return from our trip! 5 stars for sure!

  • review rating 5  I adopted a kitten from a Shelter who had just been spayed a few days earlier. I was told that the stitches were disolvable, but they were becoming red and not looking good. I called Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital ,as they were the operating vets,the shelter was incorrect, they were actual stitches which needed to be removed. They told me to come right over, they removed the stitches and checked over my kitten, plus called the Shelter to alert them to the fact that they should read the accompanying after surgery paperwork (which I did not receive). They tech sat and talked with me and assured me my new baby was fine even though it was closing time. Thank you for taking care of my baby all at no cost!

    review rating 5  We love Vets here! They have the most excellent staff, especially the front desk! Not only were they extremely professional, they were down to earth and kind too! My cat needed jaw surgery and they were very knowledgeable and made me feel like my kitty was getting the best care. It’s our go to place for our animals in the Area.

    review rating 5  Dr. Ramano was great with my dog, who I'd just rescued a week earlier. Patiently answered my many questions as a first time dog owner. She usually growls and barks at men, but not at him.
