NO-SHOW AND LATE CANCELLATIONS
If you cannot attend your appointment, let us know by email, phone, or voicemail at least 24 hours prior. Failure to give 24 hours notice will result in a cancellation/no-show fee of $40.00 + HST.
Specialist appointments require 48 hours notice with a cancellation/no-show fee of $140.00 + HST.
We understand that unforeseen circumstances might lead to missed appointments/late cancellations, and we are always willing to review individual cases. If you ever find yourself unable to keep a scheduled appointment, we kindly request that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance. This allows us to reschedule your appointment and offer the vacated slot to another patient.
