    Late Arrival Policy (Effective 9/23/19)

    • You will be marked a “no-show” if you are 15 minutes late to your scheduled appointment.
    • If you are less than 14 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, you will be seen for the remainder of the allotted appointment time.
    • If you are late to a specified early-arrival appointment, (e.g., an intake appointment) you may be seen for the remainder of the allotted appointment time. And/or you may be scheduled to return another day to complete that appointment. The decision to be seen for the remainder of the time or to be rescheduled will depend on your arrival time and the clinical judgment of CAPS staff.
