After your initial visit, if you are having a medical problem or need assistance, we request that you call the
office between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. It is very difficult for us to accommodate walk-in patients. Walk-

Cancellations and rescheduled visits. Appointment times have been reserved for you. We request
that you cancel or reschedule your office appointment or endoscopic procedure by phone a minimum of 2

to be seen. There may be a charge of $25.00 for no show appointments and cancelled or rescheduled
appointments without proper notice. Failure to show up for an endoscopic procedure may result in a
charge of $75.00. This fee is not billable to your insurance company. Multiple cancellations,
reschedules or no show appointments may result in your discharge from our practice.
