Crescent City Veterinarians & Staff


New Orleans Vets

Dr. Cheri Hansen with Prince

Cheri Hansen, DVM

Dr. Cheri Hansen opened Crescent City Vet in 2003 with her friend and business partner, Dr. Ned Henry. Dr. Hansen is originally from the Chicago area and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Tired of snow and cold weather, she moved south to attend veterinary school at the University of Florida-Gainesville, where she received training in companion animal medicine and surgery, as well as exotic animal and zoo animal medicine.

The fun of exotic animal medicine was eventually eclipsed by Dr. Hansen's desire to work with family pets. "Dogs and cats are deeply connected to humans in a way wild animals will never be," she says. "I love the synergy of people and their pets. We all make each other's lives so much better." It's no wonder her special interests include internal medicine, anesthesia, and pain management. "I love the problem-solving nature of internal medicine and, above all, I want to keep my patients comfortable and free of pain."

Away from the hospital, Dr. Hansen enjoys family life with her husband Charles, her daughter Bryn and son Tom. They have a long history of adopted pets, including dogs and cats, as well as rats, opossums, frogs, fish, and whatever else wanders its way into their home. Her hobbies include biking, running and martial arts training.

Dr. Ned Henry with Bumper and Roxy

Ned Henry, DVM

Dr. Ned Henry is a native of Norfolk, Virginia. He finished his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia in 1992 and earned his DVM at LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. Ned and Cheri Hansen opened Crescent City Veterinary Hospital in 2003. "Our goal is to provide not only the best patient care but also the best customer service of any veterinary hospital in the metro area," says Dr. Henry. "To realize this vision, we have cultivated a team of extraordinarily talented, compassionate, responsive, and detail-oriented caregivers who are completely dedicated to our mission of improving the lives of pets and people. We treat our patients as if they were our pets and we regard our clients as our friends."

Dr. Henry's practice interests include internal medicine, surgery, dermatology, ophthalmology and oncology. He also has a keen interest in ultrasound, which he has been performing since 1998.

Ned and his family enjoy sailing, surfing, music, the people and the other things that go along with living in the northernmost city of the Caribbean.

Dr. Becky Bohm and Thomas

Becky Bohm, DVM

Dr. Becky Bohm is a native New Orleanian. She received her undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University and went on to earn her DVM degree from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988. After graduating, Dr. Bohm worked at Causeway Animal Hospital and The Cat Practice. Dr. Bohm took off a few years to start a family and then began relief work for various hospitals and clinics around the New Orleans area. She started doing regular relief for Crescent City Veterinary Hospital in 2009 and joined the team as a part time associate in 2015.

Dr. Bohm's special interests are feline medicine, internal medicine and geriatrics. She says that the strength of the owner-pet bond and the importance of pets in people's lives inspire her on a daily basis. She is thankful for the numerous advancements in Veterinary Medicine over the years that have increased the longevity and improved the healthcare available for pets.

Becky and her family enjoy attending Pelicans games and playing tourists in New Orleans. When away from work, she enjoys jogging, volunteering at her daughter's school and for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), and spending time with her menagerie of pets.


New Orleans Vets

Dr. Ann Craig and Maggie

Ann Craig, DVM

Dr. Ann Craig is originally from the snowy wilds of New Hampshire and received her undergraduate degree from Adelphi University in New York. She earned her DVM from Louisiana State University in 2011 and went on to practice as a relief veterinarian at clinics throughout the New Orleans area before joining the team at Crescent City Veterinary Hospital as a part time associate in 2017.

Dr. Craig's professional interests include internal medicine, feline medicine, and behavior, and she loves how clinical practice gives her the opportunity to put her science nerd skills to good use. She enjoys seeing the great variety of forms the human-animal bond can take and helping people honor and deepen the relationships people have with their pets.

She and her husband Mike have a soccer-loving mixed breed dog name Dante and 3 cats: Lyra the tripod torbie Katrina rescue, black Aineko, who was clicker trained by Dr. Craig, and orange Mister P, whose favorite past-time is wrestling with Dante. During her off hours, Dr. Craig enjoys traveling the world with her husband Mike, reading, cooking for friends, and practicing yoga and meditation.
