The initial cosmetic consultation fee with Dr. Vasquez is $100. The fee includes a full evaluation and physical in order to give you an informed recommendation regarding your aesthetic goals. Your credit card will be billed at the time of booking your appointment. If a procedure is booked, the consultation fee will be applied towards your procedure. Consultation fees for reconstructive procedures covered by insurance will be filed with your insurer; patients are responsible for any co-pay and/or deductibles at the time of consultation. If consultations include both cosmetic and reconstructive components, we may bill your insurer for the reconstructive portion, but you may be responsible for both the cosmetic fee and/or the reconstructive portion that was not covered by your insurance carrier.
Cancellation, No-Show, and Late Policy
Your appointment is time set aside exclusively to address your needs. In order to respect all our patients’ schedules and time we have implemented an appointment cancellation policy. This policy enables us to better utilize available appointments for our patients.
Appointment Cancellations – 24 hour policy
In order to be respectful of the Connecticut Plastic Surgery Group patient community needs, please be courteous and call our offices promptly if you are unable to attend an appointment. If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment for any reason, we ask that you call at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time. Appointments are in high demand and your early cancellation will give another patient the possibility to have access to timely medical care.
How to Cancel Your Appointment
To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please call (203) 292-8119. Please keep in mind that our operating hours are between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday through Thursday, and between 9:00am and 2:00pm on Friday.
A “no-show” is someone who misses an appointment without calling to cancel or reschedule their appointment. This also includes patients who are not present within fifteen minutes of their scheduled appointment time regardless of a prior phone call.
Any appointments that are cancelled without a 24-hour notice are considered “late cancellations.” Those with multiple late cancellations will be treated as a no-show. An administrative fee of $75.00 may be billed to the patient for each No-Show appointment and/or for multiple late cancellations.
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, we cannot guarantee that you will be seen by the doctor as this will cause a delay in the next scheduled patient appointment. Arriving 15 minutes late or more may be considered a “no-show.” An administrative fee of $75.00 may be billed to the patient for each No-Show appointment and/or for multiple late cancellations.
