Appointments

Appointments are offered in-person or by phone. When booking your appointment time, we recommend allowing for one hour in case your appointment runs late. Please read our policy for canceling appointments and our “no-show” appointment fee.

Booking your appointment

Our Pomelo Health portal allows patients to book, cancel and reschedule appointments, and communicate and send files with clinic staff securely. You may also use your phone to manage your appointments. Urgent appointments may be booked by phone.
