Oncology Courtesy Consults

Any veterinarian can request a courtesy consult with Dr. Sarbu to discuss any case where cancer is a potential diagnosis.

If you need urgent advice while the clinic is closed, you can email her and specify that you need an urgent answer.

Dr. Sarbu can advise on further tests needed to reach a diagnosis, help with results interpretation, staging procedures, provide general information about obtain a specific cancer such as general prognosis, treatment options and cost. Due to the complexity of cases she will not be able to make patient-specific recommendations or provide written chemotherapy plans for patients that she has not evaluated.

Follow-up visits
