What happens when Dr. Sabine is on vacation?
We won’t be scheduling routine office visits during Dr. Sabine’s time of absence. Sick visits, please contact PM Pediatrics, a well-respected pediatric urgent care center on Rockville Pike. Feel free to e-mail Dr. Sabine with any other concerns.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
We ask that all cancellations be made with more than 24 hour notice. Cancellations within 24 hours will be charged a $75 no show fee.
If you have missed more than 3 consecutive scheduled visits, we will charge the full visit fee.
