Referred Surgical Clients
Our goal is to be a partner with the referring veterinarian in the treatment of their patients. We value the relationship that referring veterinarians have with their clients and we treat that relationship with the utmost respect. It is at the heart of rendering the best in patient care.
We keep referring veterinarians fully informed about any patient referred to us. We do not, under any circumstance, accept referred clients as part of our general practice. We provide a complete referral report, including radiographs, ultrasound images, and photographs on the case to the referring veterinarian by the next business day at the latest.
