We are Veterinary Health Service
Our story starts back in the 1980’s when a young Dr. Nathan Maxson decided to start his own clinic after working with his brother-in-law many years. After Dr. Maxson founded Beechcrest Animal Clinic, he met and helped many people and their beloved pets. He was well respected and well known in his community. In 2015 Dr. Maxson retired and Dr. Waqar Hassan bought his clinic. Since then Dr. Hassan has helped the clinic expand and introduced technology and new treatments to better help his patients.
Although Dr. Hassan had big shoes to fill, he did not fall short in making connections with each of his clients. Many people fought the idea of a new vet, but he pushed on and many of his clients today wouldn’t have anyone else taking care of their furry friends.
