Cancellation and No-Show Policy
Cancellation and No Show Policy
Our goal is to provide quality individualized medical care in a timely manner. Late cancellations and No Shows (includes arriving more than 15 minutes late) create inconvenience and prevent scheduling of other patients who need access to medical care in a timely manner. We understand situations arise when you may need to cancel your appointment and we appreciate advance notice when that happens. This helps us be respectful of other patients needs and enables us to give the appointment time to another patient who needs to see us.
Please call our office by 3:00 pm on the business day (Monday - Friday) prior to your scheduled office appointment or procedure to notify us if you need to reschedule or cancel the time that was reserved for you. Office appointments which are rescheduled or cancelled without advanced notice will be subject to a $50.00 Late Cancellation Fee. This fee will not be submitted to insurance.
