“No Shows” affect everyone… Does it really matter to anyone but you if you fail to keep an appointment with your doctor? Why shouldn’t you be a “No Show”?
Understandably, there are times when you might have to cancel a medical appointment for very valid reasons: child care, transportation, work schedules, etc. When this happens, it is very important that you take the time to cancel your appointment and reschedule.
It matters to a lot of people when you don’t show up for a doctor’s appointment and it affects you in ways you might not realize.
Some people believe that not showing up will help the scheduling in a busy health center – this is absolutely not true. When an appointment is made, we consider the complexity of a patient’s issues and appointment times and appointment duration times are carefully made. A disruption in the workflow is just that – a disruption that effects everyone – including your health and your valuable time.
Thank you for not being a “NO SHOW”!
