Our practice takes great pride in reserving your appointments and trying to respect your time when the appointment is reserved for you. However, if you are unable to keep your appointment and in order to avoid a “no-show or late cancellation charges” we do request a 48-hour notice. Please be respectful of our policy, as that is the only way we can provide a commitment by reserving the time for you and we expect you to be responsible for keeping that appointment or observing the cancellation policy if you have to cancel. Should there be an urgent need to cancel less than 48 hours in advance, please indicate that to our office staff and your provider will be glad to review your particular situation. If there was a charge made for a no-show or a missed appointment, we do expect you to pay that fee in order to schedule a follow-up, as that is your responsibility, as insurance does not cover missed appointments.
