Referring Vets

REFERRING VETERINARIANS

Our aim is to provide a positive referral experience for both the referring veterinarian and the client. We will offer courteous and professional service to your clients at all times.

Early referral of cases is most likely to result in a positive referral experience. As you would be aware the eye has an amazing propensity to deteriorate quickly with many diseases. In our experience, waiting till the last minute to refer a case has the potential to result in higher costs, less satisfying results and disappointed clients. Early referral in the majority of cases is usually associated with higher success rates, better surgical outcomes and happier owners.

Appointments

For appointments please ask your clients to contact us on (02) 9101 8600 (for Artarmon) located inside the North Shore Veterinary Specialist Centre or 0457 393 838 (for Yagoona) located inside the RSPCA Veterinary Hospital.

VISIT TO REGIONAL AREAS Jeff and Cameron also provide a service for clients living out of Sydney.
Generally once a month trips to the West (via Blue Mountains, Lithgow, Bathurst and Orange), Newcastle, Central Coast, Canberra (via Wollongong, South Coast, Bowral, Moss Vale and Goulburn) are made. Usually we notify referring practices a week or so prior to our visit.

MEDICATIONS We are able to supply referring veterinarians and clients with various medications. It is a legal requirement of the Veterinary Surgeons Act that we can only supply such medications to animals that are clients of ECA and by prescription. Medications can only be prescribed for a year after the last consultation. If you have any queries about this please feel free to contact us.
