Referral Procedure

Please note that when a case is referred to us we guarantee that your patient will be seen and examined personally by a Cardiology Specialist

Richard offers a specialist mobile, in-practice cardiorespiratory service for all of Melbourne but also has a clinic at the Melbourne University Veterinary Hospital Weribee on Wednesdays and holds regular regional clinics (see areas and dates in column to the left).

This service aims to work in conjunction with referring veterinarians to offer a friendly and convenient mobile specialist cardiorespiratory service to veterinary practices. Richard can visit your practice and provide all the necessary diagnostic equipment to deliver the highest standard of care to your patients.

Referral to a specialist centre can be organised if surgical intervention or further advanced diagnostics, such as CT,  are required.

Call us – Please call Richard on 0410 363 620 to discuss your referral requirements.

Email us – any relevant patient history (including lab results, radiographs etc.) to us at vetcardiology@gmail.com.

Client appointments – can be made by you or your client contacting us, or we can contact your client for you and arrange a mutually suitable date and time for their appointment.

After the appointment – when your client has seen Richard, you will be provided with a full written report of the consultation and Richard's findings/diagnosis.

Medications – medications will in most cases be prescribed and billed by yourselves.

Repeat Checks – we will make any appointments for repeat check-ups at a convenient time for you and your client.

Telephone consultations (see Case Advice) – Richard is happy to discuss cases over the telephone.  He will also happily discuss with you any X-ray’s, ECG’s or scans that you would like to send to him for his opinion.

Please post any items to: Richard Woolley, 2 Cypress Point Drive Mt Eliza Vic 3930.
