Digital Consult Scheduling and Exam Process: 

What Requirments Are There To Talk With One Of Our Medical Professionals?

At Lombard Veterinary Hospital, we require an active vet/client relationship to deliver a medical diagnosis electronically. This means that you must be an active client and have had an in-person exam within the last year. Outside of this type of a relationship, any engagement will be high-level and a general conversation. In all circumstances, we reserve the right to suggest an in-person consultation in order to maintain our standards of providing high-level medicine. For more information on the State Laws for VCPR please click here. If you have any questoins, please give our hospital a call at 630-627-7090 and we will answer any question you may have!

Client Feedback:

"I just finished up my digital consult with Dr. Ernat.  The appointment was for my dog, Lexi.  The app was very easy to use and the appointment was helpful and quick.  Dr. Ernat was able to see what he needed to on Lexi via the camera; and I felt as if I was in the room with him getting that personal attention that he is so great at.  Now more than ever, options like these are greatly appreciated and needed.  Thank you so much for continuing to give Lexi excellent care!!
