The relationship between a doctor and patient is a two-way street. There are rights and responsibilities on both sides. When you make an appointment to see Dr. Narain, that time is set-aside just for you. We attempt to confirm appointments a day in advance but ultimately you are responsible to mark your calendar to assure you are available to keep the appointment.
If you are web enabled, i.e. we have your email address, you will also receive a reminder via email. If you make the appointment while in the office, you will be given an appointment card.
We do understand there could be a circumstance when you are unable to arrive for appointments. However, if this becomes a pattern for your family's appointments, there will be consequences involved. If you have missed an appointment in our office we ask you to be sure to keep future appointments or cancel them with a 24- hour notice to avoid being a “No Show”.
We do require a 24-hour advance notice to cancel an appointment.
Less than 24 hours notice will result in a “No Show" fee of $55.00 assessed to your account.
If you do not keep an expanded visit, such as well child visit, immunization visit or a more complex check up there will be an $80.00 fee for the missed visit.
If your family has had 3 no show appointments within a year, or an excessive amount compounding over the years, you may be asked to find another physician that better meets the needs of your schedule.
