Let’s talk! Contact us for a free consultation and we’ll be happy to answer all of your questions.
As your partners in skin health and wellness, we work hard to ensure our team of providers have dedicated time to spend with each and every patient. When you schedule an appointment with Sheperd Integrative Dermatology, we have reserved an appointment just for YOU and your unique needs. In addition to patient care, we also often reserve a device or treatment room and prepare specific supplies for your specific appointment. If you do not arrive on-time or miss your appointment entirely, it prevents other patients from receiving care.
Effective April 1st 2023, any established patient who fails to show or cancels without at least 24 hours may be subject to a cancellation fee. These fees may range from $25.00 for a 15 minute appointment to $250 for any appointment 30 minutes or over. The fee will be charged to you as the patient, not your insurance company, and is due at the time of your next visit.
If you cancel with at least 24 hour notice you will not be charged any fee.
We understand that there may be times when an unforeseen emergency occurs and you may not be able to keep your appointment. If you should experience extenuating circumstances, please contact our Office so that we can review and potentially waive associated cancellation fees. Please note that future missed or late-canceled appointments may result in future fees.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, cooperation and communication!
