At Dr. Montanarella & Associates, PA, our goal is to provide you with quality obstetrical and gynecological care. In order to do so, appointments are offered in a timely fashion and the appropriate amount of time is scheduled for you to discuss your concerns with one of our providers. A missed appointment not only delays your care, but also prevents us from offering that appointment to another patient who could have been seen at that time.

We do understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise and you may need to reschedule your appointment. We kindly request you notify our office within 24 hours of your appointment. If an appointment is missed or is not canceled within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment, fees will be assessed as follows:

• $50 charge for a missed annual or medical appointment
• $100 charge for a missed ultrasound appointment
• $100 charge for a missed minor office procedure (IUD, Nexplanon, SHG)
• $200 charge for a missed major office procedure (Novasure, Essure, Colpo, LEEP, Hysteroscopy)

If you have more than three last minute cancellations or missed appointments you may be discharged from our practice.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
