Dramatic advances in the veterinary profession have made it challenging to remain current with the techniques and instruments for managing some of today’s complex surgical cases. By referring to a specialist certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS), you guarantee the best equipment, training and experience for your clients’ advanced needs.
Please review with your client the reason their pet needs specialized care and provide them with copies of any pertinent medical records, medications, lab reports or images to bring to the consultation. Please complete our referral form and submit it to our office online or by fax, prior to your client’s first visit to VRC.
Our primary goal is to give each patient the comprehensive care necessary for diagnosis and resolution of any medical problems, for the best quality of life. If a problem is outside of our range of expertise or the patient requires adjuvant therapy, we become a referring veterinarian and coordinate with you to find the best specialist from our network of professionals.
We believe that open communication with the primary vet is essential to providing clear management of each patient’s case. When possible, our staff will personally call you with a verbal report following any procedures. Once available, we will also forward any lab results to you. We will also consult with you regarding your patient’s prognosis and follow-up, to ensure a seamless continuum of care.
