He studied Animal Science at Kansas State University, which was a natural progression to veterinary medicine. Dr. Buckley came to Gardner and opened Oakbrook Animal Hospital in 1993. In his spare time, he still enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors, boating, roping, fly fishing and hunting with his faithful yellow lab, Morgan.
