Dr. Bisgard consulting with Dr. Burney

We appreciate your referrals and enjoy working closely with you to ensure the best possible care for your patients.

  • To refer a patient:  Patients may be referred through the DVSC Referral Portal (preferred and easiest way to refer), or by downloading and completing our referral form and faxing it along with medical records and lab work. Once we receive the referral, clients can schedule with us directly, or we can contact the client directly upon request. Patients may also be referred by phone during regular business hours.
  • For urgent cases: If a case is urgent and evaluation is needed the same day, please call the closest DSVC office. If it is after regular business hours, please call the emergency surgeon pager number, provided in a separate mailing or please call any DFW area emergency veterinary hospital.  
  • To discuss a case with a surgeon:  Call the hospital closest to you during regular business hours. We are happy to provide information prior to a referral.
  • For review of patient radiographs:  Use the radiograph referral form to provide a brief background of the case.
