Our Cancellation Policy

I understand that there may be a need for you to cancel an appointment. As a courtesy to other patients who may like to utilise your appointment time slot, please call, sms or email us with as much notice as possible. At the time of you booking an appointment, you will receive an email outlining your appointment date and time. You will also receive an sms reminder of your appointment on the day preceding your appointment. Please confirm your appointment by replying “Yes” or “No” to the sms.

Late Cancellations: In the event that you cancel an appointment after 7.00pm on the day preceding a scheduled appointment, I reserve the right to apply a $45 late cancellation fee to your account. Generally, I only apply this fee to those who repeatedly cancel appointments at short notice.

No shows: In the event that you “no show” for a scheduled appointment, I reserve the right to apply the full consultation fee to your account. If yours is a workcover or compulsory third party injury claim, the “no show” fee will not be covered by your insurer. You will be personally responsible for the fee in question.

As a practice owner I go to great lengths to maintain a friendly and respectful relationship with all of my patients. I understand that unforeseen circumstances arise that can necessitate the cancelling or postponing of an appointment. I use my discretion and generally only applying these fees to repeat offenders. If you are able to reschedule your appointment within the next 48 hours I will not apply any cancellation fees.
