Veterinary Referral Information

Chesapeake Veterinary Surgical Specialists are committed to providing excellent surgical care for your referred patients.  We understand the importance of the relationship between a patient and their primary care veterinarian, and you can be assured that we will utilize our surgical expertise to enhance that relationship.  We will work closely with you so that your patient’s immediate and long term goals can be achieved.

While your patient is in our care, we will communicate with you through every step of the diagnosis or treatment, and you will receive a complete copy of your patient’s medical records upon discharge.   We will not offer your patient any routine veterinary care such as immunizations, wellness examinations or other primary veterinary care while at our hospital.  Whenever possible, follow-up evaluations may be performed at your primary care facility.

Feel free to call our hospital to obtain an estimate for surgery prior to referral.

Patient Referral Information

To refer a patient to our surgeons, please fill out our  patient referral form or call our office during normal business hours to discuss your case with one of our veterinary staff.  Prior to your patient’s appointment, we would appreciate it if you would fax pertinent patient information to our office.  Or, you may give copies to your client to bring to the first appointment.
