APPOINTMENT CANCELLATION POLICY
We understand that unplanned issues can arise, and you may need to cancel an appointment. Should this occur, we respectfully ask that scheduled appointments be cancelled at least 24 hours in advanced.
Our doctors and allied health professionals want to be available for your needs, for the needs of all our patients. When a patient does not show for a scheduled appointment, other patients lose the opportunity to be seen.
It is crucial that you notify us of your cancellation, at least 24 hrs prior to your appointment time, to avoid the $55.00 cancellation fee.
