We strive to run our office as efficiently as possible in order to provide you the best service. Appointment times are scheduled to allow us to care for specific needs during each visit.
Because appointments are in high demand, we value advanced notice from our patients who are unable to keep their scheduled appointments.
Please call our front desk at 205-870-3303 with a minimum of 48 hours’ notice to cancel an appointment. We will gladly work with you to reschedule the appointment.
There is a $100 consultation booking fee and a $250 filler booking fee for cosmetic patients seeing Dr. Sawyer. Failure to cancel or reschedule these appointments within a 48-hour time frame will result in a nonrefundable “no-show” charge of the quoted amount.
