Session Cancellation Policy

You are required to use your online scheduling portal to cancel your therapy session, or to notify Dr. McDowell by phone or email at least 24 hours in advance of a cancelled or rescheduled session.

Late cancellations (those with less than 24 hour notification) and no-shows (cancellations with no notification) will be charged for a full session per the practice policy.  

Please note that you are responsible for coming to your therapy session on time at your scheduled appointment time.  If you are late to a given session, as a courtesy to all clients your session will still end on time.  This avoids overlap with the next client’s session.

Your session may be cancelled and considered a late cancellation if you arrive more than 20 minutes late for your scheduled appointment.

The office may close in inclement weather or emergency situations, in which case you will be notified.
