Policies

Arrival Time

Dr. Belsley's goal is to provide high quality, thorough, efficient and confidential consultations and treatments to every individual. To facilitate this, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment- not significantly (i.e. more than ten minutes) earlier than your scheduled appointment and certainly not later. In this office, we do not wish to have patients waiting in the waiting room, as this undermines all of our goals, especially efficiency and confidentiality. We hope that you will note and appreciate our efforts to be gracious and accomodating hosts during your time in the office, and we underscore that we prefer that you not arrive more than ten minutes early or any number of minutes late, as this impedes our ability to extend what we feel is the appropriate courtesies to the individual that was scheduled before you or is scheduled after you.

Appointment Length

Consultation for a new issue is expected to take between one hour and one hour and fifteen minutes.  Each consultation is capped at one hour and fifteen minutes.  Please take this into consideration when scheduling your appointment and when you are discussing your concerns with Dr. Belsley during your appointment.  Injectable treatments are expected to take between half an hour and one and a half hours, depending upon the treatment.  We can notify you of the expected length of any treatment such that you can prepare appropriate time in your day's schedule.  We respectfully ask that you do so.  A rushed visit is rarely a productive visit.

Food and Beverages

We are unable to extend the opportunity to consume any food items and beverages other than water while in the office.  As such, please refrain from bringing any to the office. 

Telephone and Hand Held Device Usage

We request that you refrain from having telephone conversations while in the office.  Quiet means of communication such as text messaging and emailing are perfectly acceptable, provided that your telephone is in "silent" mode.

Young Children

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to find appropriate child care for your young children.  However, bringing young children to your consultation requires you to monitor and care for them in an unfamiliar environment while you attempt to concentrate on discussions you are having with Dr. Belsley and undergo physical examination.  As such, we feel that it is most appropriate to schedule your visit with Dr. Belsley at a time that you can find acceptable child care so that your visit can be appropriately concentrated upon you.
