Dr. Denise was born and raised in the heart of Texas, and is a second  generation veterinarian.  She received her bachelor of veterinary science from Texas A&M University in 1986, and her doctorate of veterinary medicine degree from Texas A&M University in 1989.  Dr. Denise completed her certification for veterinary chiropractics by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association in 1998.  She will soon begin training in veterinary acupuncture as well. Dr. Denise is known for being very passionate, and compassionate, about giving the best possible care for animals. Community-minded, she donates a lot of time and resources in the education of children and youth in animal science.

photoTina Lee : If there is one person, besides Dr. Denise Easterling, at Easterling Vet Services who has a deep understanding of animals and the care of them, then Tina Lee is that person. A wife, a mother and a grandmother, Tina has worked with Easterling Vet Services for more than 22 years – first in Centerville with Dr. Denise’s dad, the late Dr. A.M. Easterling, Jr., then with Dr. Denise before coming to join Dr. Denise in Madisonville after Dr. A.M. passed away.

A resident of Buffalo, Lee has worked with horses and other animals all her life. In fact, it has been said that folks who have problems with a dog or cat’s behavior can call Tina and the animal is calm. When asked about that quality, Lee just will shrug humbly and say, “it is nothing that no one else can do.” But many people who know her will beg to differ.

She and Dr. Denise have been friends a long time, and after Dr. Denise got out of vet school, “She become my vet, and I went down to help her one week, and well, the rest is history.”
