Nobody likes to be kept waiting and we are all aware of this and try to adhere to appointment schedules. However, the unpredictable nature of medical practice means that doctors sometimes run behind time. This is mostly due to a patient requiring urgent medical attention.

If you no longer require your appointment, we would appreciate you calling to cancel so the time may be made available to other patients.
