Dr. Green was named one of Westchester County's "Top Vets" by his colleagues, one of only 60 veterinarians and less than a dozen general practitioners, to be so honored, in 2011, 2012 and 2013, as published in Westchester Magazine. Personal attention and compassion are Dr. Green's trademark, and the foundation of Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital.

Dr. Green is very active in the community, especially sponsoring youth sports, supporting the schools, local charities, village beautification projects, giving animal hospital tours to youth organizations, and offering his services at reduced fees to all active service men and women and first responders, as well as caring for the local K9 Corps with no expense to the village. He has written helpful articles in local publications, and regularly posts advice on pet care on social media sites.

Dr. Sonja M. Ghersini
Dr. SONJA M. GHERSINI graduated from the University of London, Royal Veterinary College in London, England in 2001. During her time abroad, she enjoyed preceptorships with both the London and Bronx Zoos where she survived monitoring anesthesia on a young lion having his teeth cleaned among her other adventures with dangerous, exotic, domestic, farm and other wonderful animals. Another highlight in her early vet years was helping to rehabilitate, rear, and release orphaned seal pups with England’s version of the ASPCA.
Dr. Sonja returned home to Westchester County to practice small animal medicine. She found she was best suited as a small animal vet and enjoys the relationships between animal lovers and their furry members of the family.
She continues to live and practice veterinary medicine in Westchester County. She enjoys spending time with her family and her special interests such as hiking, photography, singing and the performing arts.
