A $50 deposit is required to reserve a new patient appointment. This deposit will be applied to the initial consultation fee and is refundable with 48 business hours’ notice in the event that you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment (valid emergencies are, of course, an exception to the 48-hour notice requirement). New patients who fail to provide the required 48 business hours’ notice for appointment changes or who don’t show up will be charged the full new patient appointment fee ($100).
This policy insures that we are able to accommodate new patients with convenient appointment times as promptly as possible. It also insures that each patient receives our focused attention during their appointment (many medical offices double or triple book each appointment slot to accommodate no-shows and late cancellations, which is something we refuse to do).
If you have questions about this policy, please feel free to ask.
