Cancellation Policy

Failure to keep your scheduled appointments at Guilford Neurologic Associates hinders our ability to provide the best care to our patients. So, to limit missed appointments, we have implemented a cancellation policy effective January 15, 2010

We ask that you show our physicians and our other patients consideration by calling at least 24 hours prior to your appointment, if you are unable to keep it.

Due to an increase in missed appointments for both new and return patients, a $35.00 rescheduling fee will be charged for appointments that have not been cancelled within 24 hours of scheduled time. In order to reschedule the appointment the fee must be paid. If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment for any reason, please contact us at (336) 273-2511 so tht we may make that appointment time available to another patient.
