"Dr. Atherton is not a herp vet specifically, but he does treat a handful of iguanas. If you live in rural north central KS (which I did for four years) and need a vet that will treat exotics, he's worth driving to. I found him to be pleasant and good with my iguanas, and he was willing to not only listen to my thoughts and information that I could provide about iguana health care issues, but was also not afraid to look up information and consult other veterinarians if necessary. Finding a good vet in the area was very difficult for me, since most of the vets I talked to didn't see iguanas at all. I was impressed enough with Dr. Atherton to continue to drive an hour to take my iguanas to him for their yearly exams."
