Your Appointment

Today, our lives couldn't be any busier. We have a lot to keep track of -- children, jobs, pets and everything that comes with them. We know it's easy to fall behind, and we understand. However, for the convenience of all of our patients, we ask that you arrive for your appointments on time.

If a patient is more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, it is the policy of Atlantic General Hospital and Atlantic General Health System (AGHS) to reschedule that patient's visit if the provider's schedule is full. We do this to ensure that the wait to see a provider is as short as possible for all of our patients.

If you are late for an appointment, our staff will do everything possible to make arrangements for you to be seen by another provider, either at your regular office or at one close by. If no openings are available, you may seek care at one of our walk-in locations: Atlantic ImmediCare on 10th Street in Ocean City or at the Atlantic Health Center located on the Atlantic General Hospital campus.

Otherwise, your appointment with your provider can be rescheduled for a time that is convenient for you.

If you are not able to keep your appointment at the specified date and time, please make every effort to cancel in advance so that the time slot is available to another patient. If you miss 3 appointments in Atlantic General Health System within a 24-month period without giving notice at least 24 hours in advance, you could be dismissed from all AGHS practices.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.
