Office Policies



Appointments are an important part of your treatment, and this time has been reserved specifically for you. Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule.

We request a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, and we appreciate your cooperation.

  • If you exhibit signs/symptoms of lower respiratory infection (eg. cough, fever, or shortness of breath), please reschedule your appointment and see your medical doctor.
  • If you have had a fever or felt hot/feverish in the last 14 days
  • if you have recently experienced loss of taste or smell
