For Veterinarians Overview
We understand that entrusting your patients to another doctor is a serious responsibility. At VCA Veterinary Referral Associates, we want you to know that your referred patients will receive only the best care from us. You always can count on us to be your partners in health care. We have a full range of services and specialists to meet the needs presented by even your most challenging cases. Feel free to contact us for a tour of our facility and to meet some of our staff.
To have your patient evaluated by one of our veterinary team members, please ask your client (your patient's guardian) to contact one of our administrative staff at 301-926-3300 to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors.
In order to help our veterinary staff accurately assess your patient's current health status, we ask that prior to referral that you please complete our 'VRA Referral Form' located at the link below and fax it to our hospital at fax #301-977-1308. Pertinent medical records may also be faxed along with the referral form. If you need assistance, have questions or wish to discuss your patient's case prior to referral, please call our hospital and a member of our staff will be happy to assist you.
