We LOVE Dr. Henshaw and his staff!

They are so friendly and helpful, and are excellent at remembering details about our crew. They were very accommodating when I wanted to bring all three in at once for their annual checkups - we were like a small circus in the exam room!

Dr. Henshaw's style is relaxed but very attentive and he's very honest about his thoughts. You can tell he's in this for the health and well being of your pet, NOT the cash.

Highly recommend Oakwood!
