"I am a vet tech that's worked there for nearly 6 years. I've been a client of Dr. Bankstahl's for 10 years. We have recently moved our clinic location to a fantastic new and larger facility. We do also have boarding available."-- Mrs. Agents
"I am a licensed veterinary technician with Parkway Small Animal and Exotics Hospital. I have been there one year now, and am VERY impressed with my fellow staff members. The doctors go out of their way to help patients. We see dogs/cats/reptiles/small mammals/avian species. We have clients coming from Ohio to see our doctors. Dr. Bankstahl is the owner. The man is a walking animal encyclopedia! He is very knowledgable in all species of animals, and he trains vets to work with Exotic species. Our clinic does NOT just "dabble" in exotic animal medicine...we SPECIALIZE in it! I am truly blessed to have found this position with PSA&E hospital. I love working with different species, and educating people on small/exotic animal husbandry."-- Heather
Note: In addition to this recommendation, the Green Iguana Society has also received negative feedback about this vet. Be aware that individuals must find the veterinarian that is right for their iguana. Not every vet will be a good fit for every client. With this in mind, please be sure to do your own checking before bringing your iguana to this or any other veterinarian.

"Tim Whalen, D.V.M. is an excellent vet. He is very friendly and kind. He helped us with our iguana, Sephi when we really needed it. He is very good at what he does and gives awesome information. He has a binder of care sheets on many exotic pets that he can get a copy of for you so you can take some info home. He knows what he is doing and has, what I thought, were resonable prices for his services. I would definately recommend him for your iguana."
