Yes, I go to Dr. Tom Greek in Yorba Linda; he is a herp specialist and he and his staff have been very patient with my many questions the two times I’ve been in.

I've worked with Dr. Greek and so have many of my friends. He's a good vet and I'd recommend him too.

Man… He must be getting old now. He's been treating reptiles for a very long time...

He still seems pretty spry but yeah, I'm already thinking what I'll do when he retires!
