At Arthritis Associates, we feel that medical treatment is a mutual partnership between the physician and the patient. It is our policy to treat all patients with dignity and respect. Likewise, we ask that our patients respect our needs as well when they are unable to make their appointment.
Should a patient miss a scheduled appointment without notifying us at least 48 hours in advance, we will assume that they no longer need our medical assistance. Consequently, the patient will be discharged from our care for lack of compliance and requested to seek medical assistance elsewhere.
We appreciate the cooperation of all of our patients in our efforts to ensure everyone can obtain appointments within a reasonable time.
