We request 24 hours notice in advance if you will be unable to make your appointment. This allows us to offer the appointment to another patient who needs to be seen. If you do not call and do not come to your appointment, this goes down on your file as a “no-show.” Patients with multiple “no-shows” may be asked to find another doctor.
Please make your next prenatal appointment at the completion of your office visit. Using our EMR we can make numerous appointments for you and then print out your schedule. You can always call during office hours to make an appointment and we also have an appointment request feature on our web site.
Please be courteous enough to call us in advance if you will be late or unable to keep your appointment.
There may be times when, due to emergencies, your scheduled doctor is unavailable. In those cases, you may be able to be seen by the other doctor or our ob/gyn nurse practitioner, or you might be asked to reschedule or to wait a bit longer.
In case of an emergency, we will try to contact you in advance, but this is not always possible. We try to minimize your waiting, and we hope that you understand that one day your doctor may have to make other patients wait because he/she is taking care of your emergency.
