We understand that sometimes life throws unexpected challenges in the best plans and if you need to change your surgery schedule we will try to accommodate you as best we can. However, to be fair to all of our patients we have a minimum  7 day refund policy for surgery deposits. Except the week before Christmas which has such a high demand that we must ask at least 2 weeks prior notification. Your consideration in this matter will allow us to accommodate other patients who could benefit from an appointment.
