Appointment & Cancellation Policy
At the Cheyenne Skin Clinic, our goal is to provide quality dermatological care in a timely manner. We have implemented an appointment/cancellation policy which enables us to better utilize available appointments for our patients in need of dermatological care.
To schedule an appointment by telephone, please call 307-635-0226.
Cancellations of Appointments
Please be courteous and call the Cheyenne Skin Clinic promptly if you are unable to attend an appointment. This time will be reallocated to someone who is in urgent need of treatment.
If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled office appointment we require that you give at least 24 hours notice. Available appointments are in high demand and your early cancellation will give another person the possibility to have access to timely dermatological care.
Cancellation of scheduled surgeries require 24 hours notice. Because of the necessary supplies and equipment allotted for surgical procedures, any cancellation not made prior to the 24 hours will be subject to a fee of $50.00 to $100.00. This fee will not be billed to insurance.
How to Cancel Your Appointment
“No Show” Policy
A “no show” is someone who misses an appointment without canceling it by 10:00 a.m. (1) one working day in advance. No-shows inconvenience those individuals who need access to dermatology care in a timely manner.
A failure to present at the time of a schedule appointment will be recorded in the patients’ chart as a “no show”. Three “no shows” in one semester may result in the temporary suspension of services.

If you need assistance with this or you do not have access to the internet, please let us know, we do have copies of these forms available to you at your request.

This includes grievances about waiting time, operating hours, conduct of healthcare personnel and adequacy of the facility. Grievances may be written or verbal.

Resolution to your grievance will be within a reasonable time frame, usually within 30 working days, and you will be informed of the progress of the resolution.
