HOW CANCELLATION FEES ARE CHARGED
All cancellation fees will be charged to the debit or credit card provided at the time of booking and must be paid before you can book another appointment at Double Bay Doctors.

Please keep in mind that if your appointment is a specialised GP appointment e.g. advanced skin check, keloid scar treatment, medicinal cannabis, medical termination etc., your cancellation fee will differ from the below and will be equivalent to the corresponding out of pocket fee for your appointment type.

Please arrive on time! We value your time and we work very hard to keep our appointments running to schedule. Sometimes delays are unavoidable, but to assist us with punctuality we ask that you arrive for your appointments on time. If you are more than 8 minutes late to your appointment it may be cancelled and a cancellation fee may apply. 

PSYCHOLOGY CANCELLATION FEES

Please provide us with at least 48 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. This is because your session time is reserved for you and cannot be offered to someone else, unless sufficient time is provided to us.
