Appointment Changes/Cancellations

We realize that our patients’ time is valuable and we make every effort to see patients at their scheduled appointment time. We ask that patients provide as much advance notice as possible when running late for an appointment or when cancelling. With this advance notice of cancellation, the time can be scheduled for another patient.
