What is your cancellation policy?

In an effort to provide all patients the most safe and effective care, we ensure all appointments have ample amount of time set aside with the provider. No shows, cancellations and repeated reschedules greatly inconvenience the staff and other valued patients. In an effort to reduce frequency of these inconveniences, we have implemented a new cancellation policy.

All patients are required to leave a CC on file in order to book an appointment.

New patients are required to leave a $75 deposit, which will be charged to the card on file. All deposits go towards your treatment cost (not towards retail). Deposits are refundable if cancelled more than 24 hours in advance. In the event of a no show or same day cancellation, the $75 deposit will be kept.

Existing patients do not need to leave a deposit, however, in the event of a no show or same day cancellation, there will be a $75 fee charged to the card on file. Virtual follow-ups are subject to a $50 no show fee.

If the appointment needs to be rescheduled more than 1 time, there will be a $25 rescheduling fee.

For all patients: in the event of a no show to an in-office appointment, a $250 deposit will need to be made in order to schedule your next appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
