You will receive a Patient Summary by fax immediately upon discharge of your patient from our facility. Copies of pertinent laboratory work will be included. If there is additional information pertinent to patient care and ongoing management that is not included in the Patient Summary, the attending doctor will contact you by phone.
If there are pending laboratory tests, you will receive these when available by fax along with doctor assessment and recommendations for treatment and follow-up. Whenever possible, pet owners will be directed to return to their primary care veterinarians for follow up monitoring and treatment. In the case of complicated medical conditions requiring ongoing management by our specialists, you will receive regular updates regarding your patient.
Routine healthcare cannot be provided at Saint Francis Veterinary Specialists. Pet owners will be referred back to their primary care veterinarians for immunizations, dental prophylaxis, flea/tick/heartworm/parasite prevention, refill of previously prescribed medications and all routine healthcare needs.
