If unable to attend your appointment, kindly inform the reception staff by phone or in person no less than 1 hours before your booked appointment. If your appointment is the first for that day (i.e. 9:00am), leaving a message or email before the hour mark will stop any fees being charged.

Failure to do so will be counted as a NO SHOW which attracts a penalty fee of $25.00.

This applies to all clients/patients.

Please ask the receptionist for explanation if any of this information is not clear.
