Our goal is to provide quality individualized medical care in a timely manner. "No-shows" and late cancellations inconvenience those individuals who need access to medical care in a timely manner. This policy enables us to better utilize available appointments for our patients in need of medical care.
In order to be respectful of the medical needs of other patients, please be courteous and call Oxford Eye Clinic promptly if you are unable to keep your appointment. If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment, we require that you call at least 24 hours in advance. If an appointment is not canceled at least 24 hours in advance, you may be charged a $25 fee. A failure to be present at the time of a scheduled appointment will be recorded in your medical record as a "no-show." This includes patients that need to be rescheduled due to being 10 minutes past their scheduled appointment (late). Any no-show may result in a $25 fee. After the second no-show, we will not be able to schedule any additional appointments.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please reach out to our front office team at 662-234-6683.
