Cancellation Policy

Please review our office policies listed below and be mindful of your practitioner’s time and effort.

Our practitioners set aside time just for you!

Natural health care practitioners are independent contractors. Their salaries are based upon client contact hours only. When a client cancels an appointment, it directly affects the practitioner. They spend time and effort reporting to our office and setting up just for you.

If you need to cancel an appointment, please notify our office as soon as possible. 24-hour notice allows the practitioner time to re-organize his/her schedule. However, we do understand that lives are complicated and emergencies arise. We do take that in consideration. Please notify us as soon as possible. Cancellation on the day prior to your appointment, after 5:00 p.m., or on the same day as your visit the Washington Institute will impose a cancellation fee of $50.00 to cover the practitioner’s efforts in preparing for the client. We greatly appreciate your cooperation.

Thanks again for choosing the Washington Institute for your natural health care needs.
