Better For Your Bottom Line

Instead of referring cases out, you can create an entirely new revenue stream by keeping your advanced cases in-house. It’s a win-win-win.

General Practices Love Mobile Specialists

Access to a mobile specialist such as a board-certified surgeon, internist, cardiologist, or radiologist allows the general practitioner to integrate advanced veterinary practices into his or her own clinic, provide a better and more familiar experience to their clients, and develop a new revenue model instead of referring the business outside the clinic.

I have been working with Dr. Duval for 3 years now; our staff enjoys the days they come to see our patients and our clients LOVE that they don't have to travel to another location to see a specialist. I will continue to recommend partnering with MOVES to any of my clients.

Dr. Fein has made it so easy for us with all the different services she offers! We were able to have her perform an endoscopy and colonoscopy on a pet, also removing a foreign body and helping the client avoid surgery.

Dr. Julie Duval always amazes me when she comes to our clinic, both with the time it takes her in surgery and with the difficulty of the surgical procedure itself!

We have been so pleased to work with Drs. Julie and Derek Duval from MOVES! From the ease of scheduling to follow-up and documentation, they make the process simple. We've been able to schedule things very quickly to get clients and patients the care needed without a lengthy wait. The doctors and their technicians are wonderful, communicative, and caring. We have test results and documents quickly, usually in less than 24 hours. Our clients love the convenience of coming to their own trusted vet's office, and they've been thrilled with the top notch care their pets receive.

I cannot say enough good things about MOVES and their specialists. The benefits are tremendous for the clients, the patients, the hospital, and our staff. All of the specialists provide an extremely high standard of care, are very respectful of our staff and hospital, and we have had extremely positive feedback from our clients about providing specialist-level care in our hospital. In most cases, we are able to offer services at a discount from what our local specialty hospital would charge, so the clients pay less, the pets receive excellent care, and it's profitable for us. It's a win, win, win!

Common Questions About MOVES

If you've never worked with a mobile specialist before, you probably have some questions. Here are the short and sweet answers to the most common questions, but we highly recommend requesting a Meet & Greet with your local specialist to get all the details.

Veterinary surgical drill and ultrasound machine.

Absolutely. All MOVES specialists are supplied with the very best veterinary specialty equipment available. Surgeons will arrive with all their own tools, instruments, implants, suture, and other sterile goods. Cardiologists travel with a top-of-the-line cardiac ultrasound machine, and Internists carry advanced multi-attachment endoscopes as well as ultrasound machines. We bring the referral hospital to you.

You’ll need to schedule the appointment with your client, but for internal medicine and cardiology appointments, we need little more than an exam room. Most MOVES specialists travel with a full-time technician, so there is very little burden on your staff. For advanced surgeries, we obviously need the use of your OR, and any time that anesthetized procedures are involved (surgery or med/cardio), we may need extra assistance from one technician at your hospital. MOVES does not provide or bill for ancillary services such as anesthetic technical support, performing diagnostic tests including radiographs and/or lab work, or recovering patients post-operatively. These services and the ability to charge for them are reserved to our partner hospitals.

Dog resting and recovering

After completion of any procedure with a MOVES specialist, the patient is under the care of your hospital and attending DVM. The decision to send a pet home or to stay in your clinic post-procedure depends on a number of variables, and we encourage you to discuss the post-procedure care requirements with your MOVES specialist prior to scheduling. It is the hospital’s duty to inform owners regarding your policy on overnight care. If your hospital is not equipped for advanced surgical or internal medicine procedures, or for cases requiring critical care monitoring post-operatively, we strongly recommend overnight monitoring at a 24-hour emergency hospital.

Regarding the potential for complications, our board-certified specialists stand by their work and will remain accessible to you in the event of complications. You will have the direct mobile phone number of your specialist and may contact them as needed.

Many/most surgical procedures require some form of follow-up or re-check appointment. These are typically built into the cost of the surgery and you can expect your MOVES specialist to be available.

You can visit our Locations page to determine whether a MOVES specialist is available in your area. If so, you can schedule an introductory Meet & Greet session with your specialist, or dive right in and refer your first case!

MOVES uses a 100% paperless online referral system that gives you complete visibility into the specialist’s calendar and availability. Simply visit your specialist’s page on the MOVES website to view available times, book your appointment, and submit your patient information. Each specialist’s page includes a brief video explaining how our referral process works.

Person paying bills.

Very easily! Once your appointment is complete, you will receive an invoice for your specialist’s services via email. This will be delivered to the address of your choosing, or if you are a member of a larger corporation, we can bill your AP department directly. MOVES offers all of our partner hospitals NET15 payment terms with no credit check required. Your invoice will contain a link to pay online via ACH, or you may mail a company check to our billing department. Credit card payments are accepted as a convenience only and will include a 3.5% processing fee. You can make a credit card payment at vetmoves.com/payment.
