Cancelling or Rescheduling an Appointment:

We ask that you notify our office as soon as possible if you must reschedule or cancel your appointment.

No-Show Policy:

A “no-show” will be documented when you fail to be present at the time of a scheduled appointment or when you cancel a scheduled appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice. Any established patient who fails to show or cancels/reschedules an appointment and has not contacted our office with at least 24 hours notice will be considered a no show and could result in a charge of $60.00.

Therapy Services & Medical Management Services:

Showing up over 15 minutes late for a scheduled appointment may result in the provider  to no longer see you that same day and may be considered a “no show”. If three "no-shows" are documented within a six-month time period, no further appointments will be scheduled. You may appeal this decision.

If you would like to request a refill of a current medication, please contact your pharmacy and ask a faxed request be sent to the CHS office.
