Dr. John Rossi, 2641 Park St., Jacksonville, Fla. 322204

Referred by Steve Van Allen and Lamar Rogers
Lamar commented: "[Dr. Rossi] is the author of the book What's Wrong with my Iguana?. He has 16 years of surgical experience with reptiles. He is the only herp vet in NE Florida/SE Georgia, that will do surgery on igs. He is the past president of the Jacksonville Herpetological Society. The clinic he works at has a nice layout. The "furry" animals go in one side, while the "scalely" ones go in the opposite side (with their own waiting rooms). This helps keep the predators away from the prey animals, and reduces stress."

Lake Wales
Dr. Thomas B. Schotman, Lake Wales Veterinary Hospital, 520 Mountain Lake Cutoff Road, Lake Wales, FL 33859
Ph: (863) 676-1451
Referred by Diana Waldo
"He is committed to animal care in all areas, including injured wildlife and works closley with a local rehab. center for injured wildlife. I have known of several cases where birds or animals have been found injured and then taken to his office and dropped off. He will do whatever is necessary to save the animal in question or will euthenize if necessary. He has always had a special love for iguanas and at one time was involved in an iguana sanctuary. His personal pet iggy lived to the age of 25 years. In my way of thinking, Dr. Schotman is an outstanding veterinarian."

"I am a Vet Tech at this hospital. Since I have seen the Doctor in action, I have seen him treat many reptiles including Green Iguanas. I have one myself and I completely trust my iggy in the care of Dr. Al. He has an array of reptilian medicine books on hand whenever he needs one. We do have several clients who own green iguanas, and wouldn't take them anywhere else! Doc always seems to know what to do!"
