Dr. Sontineni graduated in 2004 from Nagpur Veterinary College in India. Following his graduation he was drawn into research and spent the next 2 years at Texas A&M where he obtained his Masters degree. He practiced in upstate New York for 7 years prior to moving to Arizona. He further advanced his training by completing a year long intensive small animal medicine and surgical internship at VCA ARECA. He joined AMSC primarily as an emergency veterinarian. While he enjoys the challenges of emergency medicine and is committed to practice compassionate medicine, he likes to involve the primary care veterinarian during and after the treatment period. Outside of work, Dr. Sontineni enjoys the company of his friends and family, and of his rambunctious French Bulldog MooMoo. His hobbies include photography, traveling, and cooking.
