For many different reasons, it matters a lot if you fail to keep your appointments with your doctor. It matters so much that we even send you a reminder about your appointment date and time.
Understandably, there are times when you might have to cancel a medical appointment for very valid reasons: childcare, transportation, work schedules, etc. When this happens, it is very important that you take the time to cancel your appointment and reschedule.
It really does matter 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. Appointment times and appointment duration times are carefully made with your needs in mind. A disruption in the workflow is just that – a disruption that effects everyone – including your health and your valuable time.
WE THANK YOU FOR KEEPING YOUR APPOINTMENTS.
