To make the session more efficient, I must receive a history form from you before the consultation. Depending on the type of consultation and the problem, I may also request photos, diagrams and videos (if available) to help demonstrate the nature of the behavior problem.
The following types of consultations are offered:
- Office consultations:
The initial clinic consultation is from 1 to 1 1/2 hours. The office setting is quiet and spacious, not the hustle and bustle of a hospital or university, and you will be seeing one doctor (me) instead of students and doctors in a crowded room. The office is located in Ithaca, N.Y. Directions will be provided upon request.
- Telephone consultations:
For people who cannot travel to Ithaca, a telephone consult may be the best alternative. In this case, I will contact your veterinarian in advance of the consult to discuss your pet’s medical record. At the scheduled appointment time, you will call me and the consult will last one hour.
