Referring practitioners are welcome to refer any cases they feel would benefit
from acupuncture. The owner should be asked to bring copies of their records
from the referring veterinarian and any reports from diagnostics performed.
There is no need for a visit prior to the initial appointment being scheduled.
For a new patient who has never been evaluated for acupuncture, the initial
appointment is allotted 60 minutes. Follow-up visits for the same patient are
scheduled for 30 minutes.
A brief letter outlining the patient's presenting complaint, treatment and response to treatment will be
sent to the referring veterinarian after each appointment.
If possible, the referring clinician should contact me via email to provide a brief history and any necessary
reports from diagnostics performed.
As above, new patients will still need 60 minutes for the initial appointment and 30 minutes for follow-up
A brief e-mail outlining the patient's treatment and response will be sent to the clinician following
If clients are interested in acupuncture as a complement to conventional therapy, but they want more
information, I am always happy to contact them directly. I recommend committing to 4-8 treatments
one week apart, regardless of the presenting complaint. It can take the body several treatments to start
showing the benefits of acupuncture.
Clinicians in the hospital or referring veterinarians are always welcome to email me at email@example.com
with any questions about acupuncture.
I have a phone number here at MJR-VHUP(215-573-4545), but since I only check it once a week, if there
is something emergent, it is best to use email. Appointments can be scheduled with the appointment desk.
