You will be contacted by phone or by fax following the patient's discharge. A summary letter and copies of pertinent laboratory work will be mailed to your office once treatment is complete. Digital radiographs can be emailed upon request.
If re-evaluation is necessary, the decision of whether follow-up will occur with Dr. Avgeris or with the primary veterinarian is based on the nature of the follow-up needed, your preferences and the preferences of the client. If follow-up is pursued with the primary veterinarian, continued communication with us is encouraged.
If a client is seeking re-evaluation of their pet at a later date for the same issues for which the initial referral was made, a new referral is not necessary. For new issues, however, require your confirmation that you would like us to see the patient for this new problem.
