  • HD - Dr. Kurmes is a specialist vet who can perform just about anything. I have had Dr. Kurmes come to my house to look at several animals including my blood pythons and ball pythons. His skill with exotic animals is unmatched. I feel confident that he is the best veterinarian in Flagstaff, and I have seen about four other vets before seeing Kurmes. (06/03/03)

  • I started taking my iguana to Dr. Funk after I moved to AZ and met him at a reptile show. He was apparently well known for his work in Florida on Beardies. The Mesa Vet Hospital (as started by Dr. Driggers) is very aggressive about the correct care of green iguanas. You are bombarded with information sheets about diet, disease, and proper care during your first visit. Dr. Funk is also very pleasant and is always offering to help - even if I am just in for my iguanas yearly parasite check and blood work. (02/25/01)
  • N - I first met Dr Funk at a little herp show and saw him for an emergency after my bearded dragon got in a fight. Performed a good exam, asked me questions about my husbandry and we discussed herpetology in AZ. I am very satisfied with Dr. Funk and will take my other babies to see him. He was recommended to me by other vets and friends that heard of him. There are other herp vets closer to us however I am ok with the distance in order to get good service. (04/25/05)

    9812 North 7th Street #1
    Phoenix, AZ 85020
    Tel: (602) 861-1355
  • Phoenix - I first heard of Dr. Kiedrowski when I was working at a local pet store. When I got my Burmese Pythons, I took them to him for "check ups". I was extremely satisfied with the care and service he provided and continues to provide not only for my snakes, but for my Jacksons Chameleon and Nile Monitor as well. (09/30/01)
  • MK - I found Dr. Kiedrowski through this site. He has taken great care of my little sulcata for the past 7 months. He keeps sulcatas himself, so I feel very comfortable bringing my tortoise to him for care. I haven't found another vet in Phoenix that has as much day to day experience with tortoises. Thankfully, my gecko has been healthy. If she ever needs to see a vet, I'm definately going to bring her to Dr Kiedrowski. (02/19/02)
