We strive to provide excellent medical care to you and all of our patients. In order to do so effectively and efficiently, we have developed an appointment system that sets asides ample time for a patient.
“No‐shows", and late cancellations inconvenience those individuals who need access to medical care in a timely manner. In an effort to reduce the number of such occurrences, we have implemented a Medical Appointment Cancellation Policy.
Our policy is as follows:
This fee will be billed to you directly and is not covered by your insurance. This balance must be paid prior to your next appointment. If you don't have a scheduled appointment, the balance is expected in a timely fashion.
