No Shows/Cancellations

We reserve the right to charge you $40 for any and all missed appointments or appointments cancelled without ample notice (12-24 hours).

When you miss or cancel an appointment it affects three people. The Doctor and Staff who are here, ready to help you and THE PATIENT who couldn't get in because we reserved that time for you.

Please be courteous and let us know in advance if you are unable to keep your appointment. Cancellations can be made over the phone at 716-965-4343, even when we are not in the office. Please leave a message with your name, phone number, and the reason for canceling, so we can let the doctor know everything is okay!
