An appointment Is a prescheduled consultation time for you to receive one-on-one naturopathic guidance, effort, and expertise. During this “time” you will receive the practitioner’s complete attention and focus on you and your specific needs.
Your appointment booking
Once you are scheduled, you are responsible for that “appointment” time OR for notifying us of your cancellation 2 working days in advance. With proper notification, you will not be asked to make any percentage payment of the fee. I ask, in turn, for your respect and understanding that this is my time, business and the way I make a living. I cannot fill a gap in my schedule (my income) with less than two working days notice.
Emergencies do happen
You may cancel at any time in the event of an emergency, without the worry of any fee or payment. An “emergency,” is determined as such by your understanding of the word, and by your circumstances. We place trust in you not to abuse this, and to use it in honest, genuine, unavoidable emergencies.
If you are suddenly sick and contagious
If you are suddenly sick and contagious Or otherwise too ill for your consultation, you may cancel at any time, without the worry of any fee or payment. “Sick” means: a physical illness of the body that is/is not contagious. We place trust in you not to abuse this, and it is not for anxieties or other emotional distresses.
In the event of a scheduling conflict
In the event of a scheduling conflict On your part (with less than two working days notice to me), I ask that you be prepared to pay for my time, including “accidentally forgetting.” (For example, You forgot about your appointment this morning. Or, you were confused about what day it was. Or, you just made another commitment 10 minutes ago that will conflict with your appointment with me in 4 hours and, you feel you need the other more than the scheduled time with me, and you call to reschedule. Etc, etc.)
