Meet the Docs Who Make Everything Better!

Compassion meets expertise!

Dr. Matthew Wingert

Dr Wingert has been a veterinarian at Independence Animal Hospital since 1995. “The variety of cases every single day, and the opportunity to save someone’s pet are the two things about this job that I love the most. It’s hard to compete with delivering a litter of puppies or saving the life of a beloved pet.” Winner of the 2002 Veterinary Humanitarian Award, Dr. Wingert has developed two intense areas of interest; orthopedics and reproduction. Born in Shawnee Mission, Kansas and a graduate of K-State University, Dr. Wingert loves playing golf and basketball when he finds the time. Dr. Wingert and his wife, Lisa, are the proud parents of six wonderful children.Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Dr. Roger L Becker

As a Kansas State University graduate, Dr. Becker has been in the veterinary medicine field for over thirty years. "Practicing veterinary medicine has been more of a rewarding experience than a job," says Dr. Becker; "the opportunity to save so many clients' pets over the years and the close relationships developed with my clients has been wonderful." With a major interest in surgical cases, he still finds all aspects of the practice challenging. Spending time with his grandchildren, tennis, and golf are among his favorite activities.
