POLICIES

Cancellation Policy

A fee of $115 (full cost of appointment for Dr. Wellner) will be charged for all missed appointments. A missed appointment is an appointment not cancelled during business hours on the business day (Monday-Friday) before the scheduled appointment time, or in the case of a Monday appointment, not cancelled by the preceding Friday. You may leave notice on the voice message system or send your clinician an email. If you cancel through the client portal, please also phone the office or email you clinician to confirm she has received the cancellation notice. 

Inclement Weather

In some cases of inclement weather, we may have to cancel or reschedule your appointment. If there is inclement weather (i.e., hurricane, snowstorm, ice storm under 34 degrees Farehenheit.) on the day of your appointment, please do the following:

  • Check the website to see if the office will be closed. Even though the office may be open, your individual clinician may decide to cancel all appointments. Thus, you must ALSO call your clinician's extension to check if she will not be in the office:  (410) 684-3806. You will not receive a call to cancel your appointment. It is up to you to check the website AND voicemail to confirm your appointment
  • In some cases, we may call you to request that you come in earlier or later than your scheduled time due to the weather.
  • If your appointment is cancelled, every effort will be made to reschedule your appointment. Please call Ashley at (443) 249-3973 to do so. 
  • If you need to cancel your appointment due to inclement weather, you may cancel without a fee. Please email your clinician or call Ashley at (443) 249-3973 to do so.  However, you must call at least three hours before your appointment to cancel. If you do not show up or call after your appointment time, you will be charged a missed appointment/late cancellation fee regardless of the weather.
  • If you have any doubts or questions, contact your clinician!
