Arriving Late, Canceling Appointments and No Show

Late Policy

If you arrive 5 minutes after your scheduled time, our staff will do our best to fit you in however you'll need to wait. 

In the event you arrive 10 minutes after your scheduled time, you will have to reschedule.

Failing to do so 3 or more times within an academic year will require you to seek medical care elsewhere for the remainder of the year.
