Step by Step, Here's what you can expect at Balboa Pet Hospital
When you walk in the door of our San Francisco veterinary hospital, you and your pet will be greeted with a smile by one of our Client Service Representatives. If you have printed your new client registration form from the website, bring it with you. You can also use links on our website to begin the registration process. This will speed up the check-in process.
- A well trained Veterinary Assistant or Veterinary Technician will confirm the reason for your visit and obtain a brief history and vitals.
- One of our Veterinarians will perform a head to tail comprehensive examination. Our goal is to "talk through" the exam so that you can understand each step of the process. You will have time to address any additional concerns. Our Assistants and Technicians assist with entering all pertinent data in the computer.
- We will prepare a treatment plan which estimates the cost of the services needed. You will be given ample opportunity to ask questions, and we will not proceed with treatment until you have come to an agreement to proceed. Don't hesitate to discuss financial constraints with the veterinarian or any of our staff. We also have zero percent financing available to those who qualify and we strongly recommend pet insurance.
- It may be possible to perform all needed services during your appointment. For things that need more time, you may be asked to leave your pet for a later pick up OR to admit them the following morning if procedures will require sedation. *
