Dr. Linda Luther
Dr. Linda Luther provides the internal medicine services at Broadview Animal Hospital. She is board-certified in Small Animal Internal Medicine by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. Internal medicine specialists are trained to assist with interpretation of case history, physical exam findings, laboratory work, radiographs, and ultrasound and endoscopy results. They specialize in the diagnosis of even the most complicated cases, and are adept at caring for pets that may be facing multiple health problems.
Dr. Luther’s philosophy is to work together with the primary care veterinarian to provide the best care and service to the animal and client, and to provide clear communication and transfer of information to the primary care veterinarian. Multiple levels of referral services are available, including in-clinic patient consultations, performance of diagnostic procedures and full case management. She will work to provide education to the primary care veterinarian to facilitate follow-up care. A phone update of patient status and findings will be provided on the same day as referral, and a detailed referral letter will be mailed, faxed or e-mailed to the primary care facility within 24 hours.
