Importance of Keeping Appointments

Keeping Appointments


The relationship between you and your clinician is very important to the success of your treatment. Attending and arriving punctually to all scheduled sessions helps build a foundation, allowing for the important, sometimes difficult, work that needs to be done in your treatment. Additionally, State regulations require us to complete various assessments and other documentation at regular intervals. For these reasons, the agency enforces an attendance policy.

While we understand that you may have to miss an occasional appointment, if you are repeatedly late or miss/cancel multiple appointments, Psychiatry and Counseling Associates (PCA) may terminate services and close your file. Your ability to receive services again will not be guaranteed. Staff will discuss attendance issues with you if necessary. If you do need to cancel an appointment, please notify us as soon as possible.
