Meet Our Veterinarians

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.

While internships are not required in veterinary medicine like they are in human medicine, Dr. Romano thought it was paramount that he receive additional training to see his approach to veterinary medicine come to fruition. Since the completion of his internship, Dr. Romano has been serving the pets and clients of Westchester County. He knows that the citizens of this county treat their pets as family members and seek out the highest quality of care. Lucky for Dr. Romano, this is how he has always felt about all pets and because of these shared beliefs, he has truly enjoyed his time serving the needs of his clients and their pets. Dr. Romano’s focused areas of interest are internal medicine and preventative medicine. He lives in Stamford with Dr. Doherty, their two young children, and their two cats, Rashers and Princess Leia. In his spare time, Dr. Romano likes to root for the Yankees, go camping in the Adirondacks, ride his roadbike, and explore New York City history.

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.

When not at Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and outdoor adventures. Dr. Doherty and Dr. Romano have two children and two very tolerant cats.

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.

Dr. Raum lives in the Tarrytown area, where, along with her husband, she enjoys the excitement of living close to NYC. They live with three cats: Theo, Levi, and Layla. Dr. Raum’s professional interests include soft tissue surgery, preventative medicine, behavior and integrative medicine. She aspires to consider all factors that influence health, wellness, and disease, including mind, spirit, community, as well as body. When not catering to her patients, Dr. Raum moonlights as a professional oboist. She performs with many classical ensembles in and around the New York Metropolitan area. In addition to music, Dr. Raum enjoys SCUBA diving, fashion, painting, rooting for Manchester United, and traveling to London with her husband.
