If you fail to satisfy our cancellation policy as stated herein, and still wish to see Dr. Wald as a New Patient, you will have to pay another downpayment fee of $175.00 and the same stipulations as described above will apply to this second downpayment. Our office reserves the right not to reschedule a New Patient Appointment after your first cancellation. If we agree to re-schedule a New Patient Appointment for you after 60 days, or at anytime, you will be required to pay another new patient appointment down payment in the amount of $175.00 and the stipulations above will apply to this payment.
