    I took both of my leopard geckos to Dr. Readdy for an examination. She was very good with them and knew a lot about them. The vet office also had a large tank with 3 leopard geckos which was also reassuring. My only complaint is that they’re overpriced.

    I had a very sick tortoise that arrived from the breeder in this condition. He worked with the tortoise and myself and resolved the problem and saved my 70lb sulcata. We spent many days at his clinic and it was like being at a zoo/pet store with the different animals that came in. He is a caring vet who called us repeatedly to check up on Hairy and also educated us on the proper care for him. I wish I could find a doctor like this for myself.

    Have tried other herp. vets in my area and Dr. Landess has been the best. I’ve seen four other vets, which are all closer to me, but I drive an extra 30 - 60 mins. to go to Dr. Landess.

    He is great- knowledgeable and attentive. You can tell he really cares about the animals. Another Dr at the same hopsital - Dr Doering - also treats reptiles. There is a very large, very healthy female ig in his waiting room. I was very impressed with the staff too.
