Dr. Sosnow is a native of Arizona, growing up near the Catalina Mountains in Tucson. When it was time to go to college he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology.

During his study at the Animal Medical Center he completed rotations in Cardiology, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Internal Medicine and Surgery...just to name a few! After completing his residency in New York City, Dr. Sosnow worked at a well-established animal hospital in Scarsdale, NY where he built a loyal following of clients. After several years in New York, he and his wife decided they'd had enough of the cold weather and moved to Phoenix, Arizona. Initially, Dr. Sosnow worked at a leading animal hospital in Scottsdale before venturing out to pursue his dream of owning his own business. In 2004 Dr. Sosnow purchased North Scottsdale Animal Hospital where he is committed to turning his dreams into reality. His areas of special interest include: Dermatology, Internal Medicine, Allergy Treatment, Gastrointestinal Diseases and Infectious Diseases. Dr. Sosnow also believes in educating his clients so they can provide the highest level of care for their pets. He regularly offers pet health seminars at a local community center where he discusses common pet healthcare issues such as Valley Fever, Cancer, Vaccines, Dental Health, Summer Pet Hazards and Senior Wellness.
