Dr. Lanie Brooks attended Ross University, where she graduated with her undergraduate. Dr. Brooks then attended Oklahoma State University for her clinical year. This was when she decided to go into ER veterinary medicine due to the variety of cases and the fast-paced environment it provides. She then came on as an ER mentee with us. Upon completion, she transitioned into a full-time ER veterinarian for both our Mission and Overland Park locations.
Dr. Brooks believes it is essential to have the opportunity to be compassionate, informative, and empathetic during a time of stress and worry for our owners- not only being able to help the medical side with their pet, but also being able to help owners make difficult decisions and hopes that they get the opportunity to have an understanding of their options.
In her free time, Dr. Brooks enjoys spending time with her own pets and husband, and enjoys playing volleyball, spending time with family, and spending time outdoors.
