Our goal is to provide quality health care in a timely manner. In order to do so we have had to implement an appointment/cancellation policy. The policy enables us to better utilize available appointments for our patients in need of care.
For a scheduled appointment please call 403-265-9730. We encourage that you schedule appointments for preventative health visits, chronic medical conditions and general health maintenance.
Cancellation of an Appointment
In order to be respectful of the health needs of others please be courteous and call the clinic promptly if you are unable to attend an appointment. This time will be reallocated to someone who is in urgent need of treatment. This is how we can best serve the needs of individuals and families.
If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment, we require that you call by 10 a.m. one (1) working day in advance. Appointments are in high demand, and your early cancellation will give another person the possibility to have access to timely medical care.
How to Cancel Your Appointment
To cancel appointments please call 403-265-9730. If you do not reach the receptionist you may leave a detailed message on the voice mail. You may not cancel via email.
Late cancellations will be considered as a “no show”.
No Show Policy
A “no show” is someone who misses an appointment without cancelling it by 10 a.m. one (1) working day in advance. No-shows inconvenience those individuals who need access to care in a timely manner.
A failure to present at the time of a scheduled appointment will be recorded in the patients’ chart as a “no show”. An administrative fee will be waived for the first “no show” and $75.00 for subsequent “no shows” will be billed to the patient’s account or sent to the patient’s home. The patient will be sent a letter alerting them to the fact that they have failed to show up for an appointment and did not cancel the appointment by 10 a.m. (1) working day in advance. A copy of the letter will be placed in the patient file. Three “no shows” will result in the temporary suspension of services. In order to reinstate services, the patient will be required to meet with the Clinic Director to evaluate the situation.
We realized that illnesses and accidents often occur unexpectedly. In an effort to provide the convenience of timely healthcare we offer acute consultations. Acute consultations are for urgent and unpredictable medical care. General exams, renewal of homeopathic programs, and routine care are not appropriate to be seen for acute consultations. The acute consultation will only manage the presenting problem. For other medical concerns a booked appointment will be provided.
All emergencies will be given priority.
