Meet the ones who make it all happen!

Dr. Becker

Roger L Becker, DMV

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.

Dr. Wingert

 Matthew D Wingert, DVM

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.
