Late/Missed Appointment Policy
At The McCuiston Group we believe that convenience and efficiency are an important part of the clinical care experience. We strive to provide care that meets this criteria. In order to limit infectious exposure between families, keep things orderly and running as smoothly as possible, we must honor appointment times.
We do understand that sometimes there are circumstances that we cannot control and this may affect a patient’s ability to arrive on time for their appointments. If you are late for your appointment, we will do everything we can to see you, however, if you are 5 minutes late for a visit and we are unable to work you in or you are unable to wait, you will have to pay the associated fee. A late cancellation is any cancellation less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time.
a. Missed Appointment/Late Cancellation for Well visit -$100
b. Missed Appointment/Late Cancellation for Sick Visit – $50
c. Missed Appointment/Late Cancellation for a Consultation – $150
