Important Reminder: 24-Hour Notice for Patient Cancellations

Dear valued patients,

At North Shore Neurology, we strive to provide you with the best possible healthcare services and ensure your convenience and satisfaction. In this regard, we want to remind you about our appointment cancellation policy.

We require 24-hour notice for all patient cancellations. This means that if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we kindly request you to notify us at least 24 hours in advance. Any patient who accumulates two or more last-minute cancellations or no-shows may be subject to discharge from our practice.

Why the 24-hour notice policy?

As a medical practice, our team is dedicated to offering personalized care to each patient, and we allocate specific time slots for appointments to accommodate everyone’s needs. Unfortunately, last-minute cancellations or no-shows can disrupt our schedule and lead to missed opportunities for other patients who may require immediate attention.

How to notify us of a cancellation:

If you find it necessary to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we kindly request that you contact us through your patient portal or contact our reception team at (978) 922-2226 at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment time. Always leave a message on our voicemail or with our answering service to be addressed when received. Our team will be more than happy to assist you with rescheduling to a more convenient date and time.


We understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, and we will consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis for emergencies and unavoidable situations.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to improve our services and overall patient experience. Your commitment to adhering to the 24-hour notice for cancellations helps us serve you better and ensures that everyone receives the healthcare they need promptly.

If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We appreciate your continued trust in North Shore Neurology for your healthcare needs.

North Shore Neurology Team!
