Policy on showing up late
At the therapist’s discretion, if you show up late to your appointment, your treatment will be shortened to the time remaining. However, you will be charged for the full treatment time you had booked for.
Policy on not showing up
Should you no-show for your visit, we will charge you for the full amount of the appointment missed. Repeat offenses will result in a discharge from our clinic as a patient, at the therapist’s discretion. If you wish, we will arrange to transfer a copy of your file to another clinic. Alternatively, payment will be requested in advance of appointment.
We ask that if you do need to cancel your appointment, you give at least 24 business hours notice. Weekends do not count as business hours. However, if it is an emergency, we will waive weekend notice, at the therapists discretion.
Notice that is provided in less than a 24 hour window will be treated as a no-show visit. For more details, please refer to the Policy on not showing up.
The clinic and therapists have the right to enforce the above policy as they deem fit. By booking an appointment, you agree to strictly adhere to our Full Cancellation Policy.
