Surgery Deposit Policy

The following policies have been designed to maintain an efficient surgery schedule and ensure fair distribution of the doctor’s surgery time for all patients. We hope the policies do not cause significant inconvenience and truly appreciate your cooperation.

How Much?

Deposits are not refundable and will be accepted in cash or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express). The deposit is required to reserve your desired surgical date and is due at the time of reserving the date of your service.

Ultrasound Procedure: $180
Specialty Services (TSVS): $500
Surgical/Anesthetic Procedures (spay, neuter, dental, lumpectomy, etc): $150


We understand that personal situations can arise unexpectedly, therefore, you may reschedule your surgery three times within 90 days of the date of the deposit without penalty, provided the reschedule occurs 24 hours prior to the day of surgery. Anysame day cancellations are subject to deposit forfeit. If surgery is not performed or the deposit is not used for the scheduled services within 90 days, the deposit is forfeited. If an appointment is canceled by us due to “No Show”, the deposit is forfeited. Cancellations/Reschedules can be accepted by phone or email. Reschedules must be 24 hours prior to your scheduled procedure date.

Final Payment

Final payments must be received at the time of the surgical discharge. The deposit amount will be subtracted from the final bill. All deposits are final and nonrefundable regardless of the outcome of the procedure.

We accept cash, credit cards and Care Credit.
