Appointments

  • No-shows and cancellations with less than 48-hour notice are significant problems for our practice. Many practices overbook on purpose so that no-shows and cancellations won’t limit access of other patients as well as cause a financial hardship for the practice.
  • No shows become even more burdensome when the appointment is for a new patient/client appointment. This is due to the extra time set aside for new patients/clients. It is also detrimental to other new patients/clients who could have been seen during that time.
  • We request that you maintain the scheduled time. If unable, we require you please notify the office 48-hour in advance to reschedule or cancel so we may better accommodate other patients/clients. Any cancellation within the 24-hour window is considered a late cancellation.
  • Our appointment system also sends a courtesy several reminder notifications prior to all appointments.
    • Please do not rely solely on appointment reminder calls, as this is only a courtesy.
  • Failure to show up for an appointment and/or cancel less than 48 hours in advance will result in a late cancellation or No-Show fee as follows:
    • First (2) two no-shows and late cancellations within a 12-month period, patient/client is charged a fee of $75.00 for each missed appointment or late cancellation.
    • Third missed appointment within a 12-month period, patient/client (not insurance) will be charged the full session fee as follows:
      • Psychiatric Initial evaluation – $375
      • Psychiatric Follow-up – $175
      • Psychotherapy Initial evaluation – $200
      • Psychotherapy follow-up – $150
      • Discharge letter from the practice.
