Dr. Peter Romano
Dr. Peter Romano, a lifelong Westchester native, comes to Sleepy Hollow for the next big step
in his career. He is excited to continue his personalized and thoughtful style of medicine at his
new home of Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital.
Dr. Romano grew up in White Plains and 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, where he 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 brand of veterinary medicine come to fruition.
Since the completion of his internship in 2008, Dr. Romano has been serving the pets and
clients of Westchester County. He has learned that the citizens of this county consider their pets
a part of the family 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 his wife, also a veterinarian, his two young children, and his two cats,
Rashers and Princess Leia. In his spare time, Dr. Romano likes to root for the Yankees, go to
the gym, cook Italian food (or any food with plenty of garlic!), and explore New York City
Dr. Brian J. Green
Dr. Brian J. Green, a graduate of the University of Liege in Belgium, has been serving the Tarrytowns, Irvington, Ossining, Briarcliff, Pleasantville and surrounding areas since 1981. He completed postdoctoral training in veterinary medicine and surgery as an intern at the prestigious Animal Medical Center in Manhattan, published a groundbreaking article in a national veterinary journal, was an adjunct professor of veterinary physiology at Mercy College, and appears in the first volume of Who's Who in Veterinary Medicine.

Personal attention and compassion are Dr. Green's trademark, and the foundation of Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital.

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.
