FOLLOW UP WITH REFERRING VETERINARIANS

As it is our goal to provide the best care for the patient and client that you have referred to us, we encourage the referring doctor to feel free to call us with questions or to discuss a case at their convenience. To ensure seamless communication and treatment of the patient, VRSP provides a faxed summary letter to the referring veterinarian after our consult, diagnostic work-up, surgery and rechecks. Our surgeons and neurologist will also reach out to you by telephone to make you aware of pertinent information.
