Students Late for Appointments

Rationale

Keeping medical providers on schedule is important to students, who have their own timetables to keep. It is not possible for a provider to stay on-time if students arrive late for their appointments, given the time constraints involved in rooming a patient then providing adequate medical care.

Policy

Students who are more than 1 minute late for their appointment may have their time given to another student. In addition, students who are late may have to accept an abbreviated appointment, with a follow-up appointment in the future to completely address their complaint.  Students who are 5 minutes or more late for their appointment will have their visit rescheduled in a manner consistent with the ”Appointment Policy.”
