Here at All About Animals Veterinary Services; our patients and clients always come first! We realize coming to the vet is time consuming and not often an easy task. In order to make your experience less stressful we have made a Cancellation/No-Show Policy. This policy allows us to better utilize time, giving you and your pet the best experience possible.
We understand that occasionally circumstances may occur that make it difficult to keep an appointment. After all, life seems to spin you in different directions when you least expect it! At the time of scheduling, we reserve time on Dr. Lipham’s schedule and provide skilled support staff just for you and your pet. When a client cancels their appointment or does not show without giving proper notice, this prevents another patient from being able to be seen in a timely matter. Our cancellation/No-Show policy enables us to utilize available appointments for other patients in need of medical care. In order to be respectful of the medical needs of all of our patients, we require a 24-hour notice of your need to cancel or reschedule an appointment.
Without proper notice, the end result may be a required deposit fee when scheduling your next appointment. After the 3rd no show or late cancellation you will be asked to prepay a fee of $48.00 at the time of scheduling. This fee is placed on your account and applied toward your invoice the day of your appointment. Should you pay the deposit fee and not show, another deposit will be required to schedule.
We ask that you provide us with 24 hours notice should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Canceling or rescheduling as soon as you’re aware allows us to offer that appointment time to another patient needing to be seen. A voicemail may be left when we are a way.
If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, your appointment may need to be rescheduled. Doctors and staff are scheduled accordingly. So as not to delay the next appointment, rescheduling may be necessary.
We appreciate all of our clients and love taking care of your fur babies! If you have any questions regarding our policy, please don’t hesitate to call us at 470-868-8680.
