CREDIT CARD SERVICE FEE
(WAIVED EFFECTIVE 3/28/20 TO ENCOURAGE TOUCHLESS CARD PAYMENTS)
We must unfortunately charge a moderate surcharge of 3% for all client credit/debit card payments to recover similar fees charged by credit card processing companies. As of Oct 2015 this recoup fee was WAIVED for client card payments of less than $50, however effective Jan 2017 this threshold was lowered to charges of less than $25 ONLY.
All credit/debit cards are always welcome, however you are welcome to avoid this nominal processing surcharge when paying via cash or check.
Our automated system will attempt to send you reminders first via email, then text, and finally via an automated phone call, respectively until you confirm your attendance beginning 7 days prior to your appointment. You may cancel any further reminder(s) by confirming your appointment in response to any particular reminder sent.
Please carefully note your planned appointment in your personal calendar. Failure to receive a reminder is not regarded as an excuse for your absence to an appointment scheduled at your request. For your convenience, most text and email correspondence related to your bookings provide you with a convenient link to add your appointment to your own calendar.
