Office Policies On Appointments
When you book your appointment, you will be asked for a credit card number. This is your reservation of the doctor’s time. We will not charge your card before your visit. At the time of your visit, you may pay with cash, check or with this or another credit card. We will not keep your credit card on file after your first visit unless you request it. If you miss your appointment without giving us 24-hours notice, we will charge this card for the cost of the visit.
Please be on time for your visit. Unlike many conventional doctor’s offices, we do not double book or overbook patients. We work very hard to keep to our schedules. If you are late for a visit, it may be that your time will be cut short. We will usually call you 1-2 days before your appointment as a reminder, but it remains your responsibility to remember your visit time. Please respect our time and let us know at least 24 hours ahead if you cannot make your scheduled visit. If you do not show or cancel same day for a follow up visit, you will be subject to a $50 cancellation charge.
Phone appointments may be available for existing patients but the first visit must be in person.
Payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, personal checks, debit card, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Please do not ask us to post-date checks or wait to charge your credit card. If your check bounces, we expect that you will also cover the fee the bank charges us when that happens.
