A charge may be incurred for missed appointments. When a patient does not show or cancels just prior to their scheduled appointment time, that appointment then goes unused. This is unfortunate because there are often many other patients needing care that could have been seen at that time. Families who do not cancel an appointment at least three hours prior to the scheduled appointment time may be charged a fee of $40 per child for each missed appointment, or $75 for extended visits, or $70-$135 for counseling appointments. The fee is not covered by insurance and will need to be paid prior to scheduling future appointments. Families who have multiple missed appointments may be asked to leave the practice. Our goal is to serve your children in the most professional and timely manner possible.
