As of 2/1/2016, I will be instituting a "no show" policy for my
patients. A "no show" will be defined as not being present
for a scheduled appointment, cancelling an appointment within 24 hours
of the scheduled time or twenty minutes late for an appointment.
fee schedule for "no shows" will be as follows:
$20.00 for an established patient or
follow up visit
$50.00 for a new patient visit
$50.00 for procedures
I do understand that things "come up" and emergencies do happen.
The "no shows" will be reviewed and, with our office's
discretion, be charged accordingly. This is being done to
encourage communication from my patients, attempt to reduce wait time
for appointments and to streamline the office experience for everyone.
Also, if a
pattern of no show appointments is seen developing, termination of that
patient could be instituted. For example, three no show
appointments in a row would be grounds for dismissal of the patient.
These will be decided on a case by case nature and reviewed
by our office.
