NOTICE TO CONSUMERS
Late Cancellation/Reschedule Fee (Within Two Business Days of Appointment, Monday - Thursday):
We understand that unplanned issues come up, and that sometimes you will need to cancel and/or reschedule appointments. However, if you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you call our office at least 2 business days in advance -- so that your appointment time can be made available to other patients who require care.
Individuals who cancel or reschedule an appointment with less than two business days notice (or who fail to show up for a scheduled exam) may incur a fee equal to the fee of the appointment being canceled or rescheduled. Similarly, individuals who arrive so late that an examination cannot begin without disturbing another patient's regularly scheduled appointment will also be charged a cancellation/reschedule fee.
Repeated late cancellations or no-show appointments will require non-refundable deposit, and may result in your being referred to another medical practice for services.
