Our Electronic Medical Record (EMR), in compliance with the Accountable Care Act, requires that certain information be captured at each visit. We recognize that your time is valuable and we make every effort to run on time. Comprehensive Orthopaedics works hard to honor appointment times and respect patients’ schedules. Patients who do not call and do not show up for appointments are charged a $25 “no show” fee. If you do not show for a procedure, such as an EMG or injection, the “no show” fee is $100 whereas a surgical “no show” fee is $200. Patients who “no show” three or more times in a 24 month period may be dismissed from the practice and may be denied any future appointments.
