I personally manage my appointment schedule; leave me a voice mail message (916/797-2248) to set up an appointment. Please always leave your return phone number,even if we've spoken before, to make my getting back to you a little easier.
The bulk of my office schedule occurs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; I have clinical hours on some Fridays but others are set aside for teaching and other work. I'll do the best I can to set up a mutually agreeable time for our visits.
If you cannot attend a scheduled appointment, please contact me as soon as possible, so that I can reschedule your appointment. The clinical time you are contracting for cannot be easily and quickly rescheduled on my part. Please note, then, that except for dire emergencies, any missed appointments ("no-shows") and appointments that are not canceled at least THREE BUSINESS DAYS before your scheduled time will be billed for the full cost of the visit.
I appreciate you respecting these ground rules for our treatment relationship. Thanks - I'm looking forward to working with you. GCS
