I am a native South Carolinian born in Aiken too long ago to remember. I received my Veterinary degree from the University of Tennessee in 1985 and began practicing in Charleston in 1986. Animal Medical West opened in 1989 and has been my constant companion ever since. I like to spend my free time fishing and boating. Animals are my favorite people and working with them is my passion. Dr.Hentges only works two days a week and spends his down time at the Berkeley County SPCA helping animals in need.
