Appointments

Once you have consulted with your primary care veterinarian and you pet is referred to our neurologist, you can call Monday through Friday 8am-5pm to schedule an appointment. If our specialty coordinator is unavailable at those times, you may be asked to leave your name and phone number so we can schedule you an appointment when she is available.

The cost of examination with our neurologist is $200.00 for scheduled examinations and $400.00 for emergency examinations. Payment can be made by cash, check, Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express, Scratch Pay, or CareCredit. We do not extend lines of credit.  All payment is due at time of services.

Proposed Treatment Plan

If any additional medical treatment is necessary, you will be presented with proposed treatment plan for medical care. After examination by our doctor, a treatment plan will be generated based on the medical needs of the pet. A pre-payment of the high end of the treatment plan is required for treatment.
