No Show Policy
Appointments that are not cancelled at least 24 hours beforehand will be subject to a fee of $50!
Insurance companies will not cover any portion of a missed appointment, making the entire cost the responsibility of the client. Our therapists are not paid if you do not show for your appointment or fail to cancel 24 hours ahead which allows us to schedule another client. Therefore, be careful to schedule appointments only at times when you are sure that you can attend. If you are going to miss an appointment, please contact the therapist or receptionist (or, if after hours, the answering service at (518)243-2169) immediately. If there are reasonable extenuating circumstances (last minute illness, dangerous weather), you may expect that this fee will be waived.
