General Service Policy:
If we, at the Clinic have to cancel your appointment you will get a full refund. If you cancel your appointment 3 days prior to your appointment you will get a full refund upon request. If you fail to attend your appointment no refund is given.
3 days notice is required to change your appointment. This can be done by clicking on the link at the bottom of the confirmation page where you can change the time or you can email the Clinic.
No refunds are given if a cancellation is made 48 hours prior to the appointment.
All appointments are to be paid in full at the time of booking.
We have a policy about missed appointments. If a patient fails to attend without giving at least 48 hours notice, then a charge for the full appointment fee will be made (unless this appointment slot can be filled). You can change your appointment time on-line.
All appointment times are valuable and scarce. We have a high demand for appointments. When someone fails to arrive, this means that someone else will miss out on being seen. As a reminder, you will receive an email 2 days prior to your appointment time.
