New Client Information Form
New clients need to complete this form. Click here to open it, fill it out on your computer, print it, and bring it to your appointment OR you can fill it out in my office.
You will be charged $75 if you cancel/reschedule your appointment with less than 48 hours notice or do not show.
Why do I have a cancellation policy? Reaching your goals through healthier eating habits and regular physical activity requires planning, discipline, and being able to juggle various demands and commitments. Coming to your appointments is a way of saying “Yes!” to yourself. It is very hard for me to implement this formal policy but I believe that when you reach out to me for help with your eating you are looking, in part, for someone to hold you accountable. I believe that letting you cancel at the last minute without consequences is a disservice to you and the attainment of your goals.
Why do I require 48 hours and not 24? When you schedule an appointment, I reserve that time for you- sometimes it is reserved for a week but more often it is held for 2 or 6 or even more weeks. When you call to reschedule with just 24 hours notice, it is unlikely that I will be able to fill your slot with another client.
Why is the cancellation charge $75? $75 is a portion of what I would have been paid by your insurance had you come to your appointment. Like all small business owners, I have numerous expenses including rent, telephone, continuing education (which includes tuition, airfare and lodging), liability insurance, advertising, computer, payroll and taxes for my part time assistant, etc.
Credit Card Information
Insurance copayments, deductibles, and other fees differ significantly from plan to plan and are constantly changing.
To ensure that I receive payment of any deductibles, copayments or charges or fees for agreed to services not covered by your insurance, I ask for credit card information (or other appropriate security). No amount will be charged to your card until such non-covered deductibles, copayments, cost shares, charges or fees have been incurred.
Your credit card information or other appropriate security will be stored securely and shredded when all of your deductibles, copayments or charges or fees for agreed to services not covered by your insurance have been paid and you are no longer a client at Nutrition Works LLC.
