Late Arrival and Appointment Cancellation Policies
Our providers and staff aim to make your visit a pleasant one. In our efforts to make your visit more comfortable and to minimize your wait time, our office has implemented a late arrival policy. If a patient is more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, the *appointment may need to be rescheduled. This is to ensure that the patients who arrive on time do not wait longer than necessary to see the provider. You may be given the option to wait for another appointment time on the same day if one is available. We will try to accommodate late‐comers as best as possible, but cannot compromise on the quality and timely care provided to our other patients. All patients are encouraged to arrive at the office at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment to register and complete any required paperwork. We appreciate your compliance and understanding with this policy so that we can continue to provide excellent medical care as well as excellent customer service.
* may be subject to Missed appointent fee.
Your scheduled appointment time is reserved just for you. Our providers make every effort to be on time for scheduled appointments. In return, we ask that you help us by keeping your scheduled appointments and by notifying us in advance when you are unable to do so. When you give us advanced notice we are able to accommodate other patients. A missed appointment is when you fail to show for a scheduled appointment without notifying the clinic or when you cancel without sufficient notice.
If you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment, contact our clinic immediately. Since appointments are in high demand, your prompt cancellation will give another patient the opportunity to access timely medical care. Appointments that are not cancelled by 12 pm (Noon) one (1) business day prior to your scheduled appointment (or by 12 pm on Saturday for appointments taking place the following Monday) will be subject to fees. The fees vary depending on the type of appointment that was missed.
See the most up to date list of fees.
There is no charge for rescheduling or cancelling an appointment if we are notified. Fees may be waived due to family or health emergencies at the discretion of the physician.
As a courtesy, the clinic sends appointment reminders via email or telephone for all scheduled appointments. If you do not receive an appointment reminder, you are still responsible for arriving on time to your scheduled appointment. A telephone or email appointment reminder is not guaranteed, nor does a lack of one signify a void in our appointment cancellation policy.
