Cancellation Policy

Please contact our office at 415-894-9004 to cancel a scheduled appointment. Cancellation of an appointment for psychological testing or forensic evaluation must be made within 72 hours of the appointment time (not including holidays). Since alternative bookings are unlikely on short notice, failure to cancel an appointment in a timely manner or to “no show” on the day of the appointment may result in a loss of deposit, a charge of 4 hours of time ($1,200), and/or the termination of services. If an examinee is more than 15 minutes late without prior notice, it will be treated as a “no show.” This charge represents the minimal time that was reserved for face-to-face assessment.
