  • Remove contact lenses and make-up before arrival.

Payment for all procedures is due no later than the day prior to the scheduled procedure date.  Estimates for any out of pocket expense is sent to all patients through our patient portal.  Please be aware that we do request all patients to have access to their patient portal.  Payments can be made by calling our office at 972-596-1059.  Please note that the facility will contact patients separately for any out of pocket expense due to them as that payment is separate than the payment due to the doctor.

All procedures not cancelled within 24 hours or any patient who no-shows to their procedure will be charged $100.
