New Patient Center

Welcome To The New Patient Center At Oakbrook Animal Hospital

We see every one of our patients as a member of our extended family. The long-lasting relationships we build with pets and their owners are the basis of our treatment, and the key to us helping them to live happy and healthy lives.

Both veterinarians on our skilled team are prepared to give your pet the best care, and the experienced support team will treat your pet just like their own. We're all here to give your pet regular preventative care, for emergency medical treatment and even for surgical care when needed. From its first vaccinations to later life senior care, we're here to help your pet live a healthier life.

Gardner Veterinarian Team

We're lucky to include two well-respected vets to make up our Gardner veterinarian team. Dr. Tom Buckley is the owner/veterinarian and has been working with pets in the Gardner, Olathe and surrounding area since he opened our practice in 1993. He's skilled in all-around veterinary care but takes a special interest in ophthalmology, surgery, and pain management.

Rounding off the team is the associate veterinarian, Dr. Larry Garten. He joined the practice in 2002, bringing not only a wealth of knowledge and experience but a singular talent for teaching pet owners about the best way to care for their pets.
