The Radiation Oncology Service is available for consultations Monday through Friday during normal business hours. Please leave a message for Dr. Lili Duda at 215.898.5448 (please do not give this phone number to clients). On the message, please leave the clinician and veterinary hospital names, phone number and best time for us to call back, the name of the patient, the patient’s diagnosis, and your questions. Messages are checked throughout the day and every attempt is made to return calls within 1 business day.
The Radiation Oncology Service usually schedules new appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This schedule may vary depending on staffing and scheduling constraints. We require that patients have a diagnosis of cancer (confirmed by cytology or histopathology) in order to make an appointment with our service. If you have a patient without a confirmed diagnosis that you would like to refer to our service, please call us for a consultation regarding the case. Prior to the patient’s scheduled new appointment, a Radiation Oncology nurse will contact your practice asking for pertinent information about the patient (including the original biopsy or cytology report, CBC/blood chemistries/urinalysis, imaging reports, and other relevant diagnostic tests) to be faxed to us at 215.746.0516. In addition, it is helpful if owners bring any imaging that has been performed on their pet with them to the appointment. It is not necessary for the referring veterinarian to contact the Appointment Desk. Clients should call the Appointment Desk directly at 215.898.4680 to make appointments.
