- Notify us immediately of any changes in insurance, address or phone number.

Appointment No-Show Policy
This policy has been established to help us serve you better. Appointments are in high demand, making our providers’ time extremely valuable. When an appointment is made, it takes an available time slot away from another patient. If a patient does not show up for their scheduled appointment, it delays the delivery of health care to other patients, some of whom are quite ill. If you know you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please call (612) 813-8000 (option 3) to cancel or reschedule.
We understand that situations such as medical emergencies occasionally arise when an appointment cannot be kept and adequate notice is not possible. The first time a patient misses their appointment without notifying our staff, there will be no penalty. On the second occurrence, the patient may be discharged from our practice.
We understand that delays can happen; however, we must try to keep the other patients and doctors on time. If a patient is 20 minutes past their scheduled time, we will reschedule the appointment, unless certain circumstances arise.
Circumstances include but are not limited to:
1) Inclement weather
2) Delay in Radiology or Lab
3) Provider decides to see the patient.
