We provide convenient weekdays and weekend hours to accommodate your schedule. If you’re running late, have a broken appliance or need to reschedule, please let us know ahead of time, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. We strive to be on time, for all of our patients, so call ahead to notify us if any scheduling changes occur.
