Appointment cancellations

While keeping appointments is important for your child's treatment, we understand other obligations may arise. If you are unable to make your child's appointment, cancel the appointment as soon as possible. When you don't cancel appointments, you prevent other children from being seen and receiving important care and treatment. We appreciate your help and understanding.
