At Bay Area Foot Care our goal is to provide quality Podiatry care in a timely manner. We have implemented a no show and cancellation policy which enables us to better utilize available appointments for our patients in need of Podiatric care. The following policy is with regard to patients who fail to keep their scheduled office visit appointment.
We request your consideration of other patients and ask that you contact Bay Area Foot Care promptly if you are unable to attend an appointment. This time will be reallocated to someone who is in urgent need of treatment. Available appointments are in high demand and your early cancellation will give another person the possibility to have access to timely care. Any cancelled or rescheduled appointments with less than a 24s-hour notice will be considered a "Late Cancellation".
Bay Area Foot Care reserves the right to charge $25.00 of any patient who fails to cancel their scheduled appointment two consecutive visits in a row. In the event of an actual emergency, consideration will be given, and a one-time exception may be granted.
