Office Policy

Appointments and Arrival Times

Please schedule appointments by calling our office at (205) 417-2583 or going online at

So that we can get you checked in on time, we ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. For your convenience, we provide online forms for you to complete ahead of your appointment. Completion of online forms prior to your appointment will expedite your check-in process.

Please give 24 hours or more notice for all appointment cancellations.

This 24 hour or more notice may allow us to fill your appointment time with someone on our waitlist. We understand that our patients are busier than ever and unavoidable conflicts may occur. However, as a courtesy please notify us as early as possible.

Our policy regarding cancellations within 24 hours or missing an appointment without notice is as follows:

First appointment missed:
No charge (However, future high-demand appointment times may be limited).

Second appointment missed:
No charge (However, scheduling for a future third appointment will require a $25.00 non-refundable deposit.)

If you keep this third appointment:
Your $25.00 deposit can be applied to any charges you incur during your visit.

If you do not keep this third appointment:
Your $25.00 deposit is recorded as a no-show/cancellation fee in your financial record. This $25 deposit is required for all future appointments until an appointment is kept.

Compared to most healthcare offices that charge a “last-minute cancellation fee” on the first occurrence, our office policy is very forgiving. However, we must consider the needs of our patients on our waitlist.

Please note: The $25.00 deposit is only lost if the patient schedules and misses three (3) appointments. This prevented three other patients from being seen.

Call us today to find a time that is convenient for you to see us.
