A fee may be charged for broken appointments or cancellations without 24 hour notice. If three broken appointments or cancellations without 24 hour notice occur our office reserves the right to not reschedule.

Exceptions to this policy will be made on an individual basis. We understand that unexpected emergencies and illness do occur that may make it necessary to cancel without notice. In these circumstances we will be more than happy to reschedule.

Patient Forms

If your child is new to our office, please complete the new patient forms online prior to your child’s arrival. Completing the forms in advance enables parents to fill them out more accurately and conveniently as well as allowing our office to stay on schedule. If for any reason you are unable to complete these forms online prior to your child’s appointment, kindly arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you may complete on one of our iPads at the office.
