No Show/Late Cancellation Policy

This policy is in place to keep patients, staff and providers safe. ensure that all of our patients have the opportunity to be seen in a timely manner. When a single patient arrives late, it has a snowball effect and delays care to every other patient.

A “no-show” is missing a scheduled appointment, this includes arriving 10 minutes late for your scheduled time. A “late-cancellation” is canceling an appointment without calling (the portal should not be used for urgent messages) more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled time.

If a third No Show or cancellation/reschedule with no 24 hour notice should occur the patient may be dismissed from The McCuiston Group.

As a courtesy, we make reminder calls and/or send texts/emails for appointments. If you do not receive a reminder call or message, the above Policy will remain in effect.

We understand there may be times when an unforeseen emergency occurs and you may not be able to keep your scheduled appointment. If you should experience extenuating circumstances please contact our office, and we may be able to waive the No Show fee.

You may contact The McCuiston Group 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Should it be after regular business hours or a weekend, you may leave a message at 202.525.2426 or send a message in the portal.
