No Show/Cancellation Policy: As the wait time to be seen in consultation can be long, each appointment is very important. If you cannot make your appointment time, please call ahead to let us know, and if you cannot make the appointment at all, please advise us at least 24 hours in advance so that we may fill the time. To cancel or re-book, call our clinic or use the cancellation form.
