We had a chance to sit down with him and learn more about his background and why he is excited to join our team…

Where did you grow up?

I was born in New York City but moved to Pennsylvania when I was still very young.  I lived in New Hope through high school and then moved to Boston for my undergraduate degree.  Though I’ve been up and down the east coast throughout my education, I always wanted to return to the greater Philadelphia area someday. 

Why did you want to become a Vet?

I’ve always had a love for animals and an interest in the sciences.  Becoming a Veterinarian is a dream I’ve pursued since childhood.  I have always wanted to advocate and care for animals and their well being.  I am honored to work in a profession where I can strengthen the human-animal bond.

Why did you choose Rhawnhurst/Elkins Park?

I wanted to work in a practice that looked beyond seeing patients as numbers.  It was clear that to Dr. Denish and Dr. Katz, every person and their pet is family.  Once I saw the love that Rhawnhurst/Elkins Park team has for their patients and the dedication they have to serving their local community, I knew it was the right fit for me.  I’m thrilled to join such a hard-working and devoted team of Veterinary Professional and to help care for pets across the Philadelphia and surrounding suburb areas!

What are your special interests in this field?

I love all aspects of my field but especially enjoy dentistry, dermatology, and soft tissue surgery.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my spare time I enjoy exploring breweries and parks of Philly with my Beagle mix, Clover.  I also enjoy skiing, sketching, and following Eagles football.  Go Eagles!!!

Please help us in welcoming Dr. Cantor to Rhawnhurst and Elkins Park Veterinary Hospitals!!!
