Booking and Collection of Information
Credit Card Billing
Credit card billing is processed by Square, Inc. For terms of service, privacy policies, payment terms, and other legal information, see the following link.
Appointments booked online through IntakeQ require a credit card for confirmation. The credit card used to confirm the appointment will be charged 6 hours before the appointment. Cancellations after that point may incur a 25% cancellation fee.
Cash, valid check with the date of service, and in person credit card payments are also accepted. Payment is due in full when services are rendered or goods are purchased.
Per Maryland law, bounced/returned checks can garner a bounced check fee plus an amount up to two times the value of the original bounced check, not to exceed $1000. Frederick Body Work, LLC will charge the standard Maryland fee plus the bad check return fee charged by our bank. Upon occurrence, the client will be billed for these fees in addition to the original check amount. Failure to remit appropriate remuneration (cash, certified check or money order) within 10 days will result in a filing of an Application for Charges with the Maryland courts. Frederick Body Work, LLC reserves the right to charge a higher bounced check fee as well as refuse future services if a client repeatedly issues bad checks.
Cancellations and Rescheduling
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, you can do so by clicking on the “Manage Appointments” link on the upper right hand side of the main booking page.
You may also cancel or reschedule by email, text, or phone. Please plan to cancel or reschedule as soon as you are able. Cancellations 6 hours before the appointment time may incur a 25% cancellation fee.
Lateness / No-Show
Appointments begin and end at the scheduled time.
If you book an hour at 3pm, you get our undivided attention until 4pm. Then we’ve got 15 minutes to transition over to our next client at 4:15pm. And so on and such forth.
When you’re late, you miss out on some of the time you paid for. That’s all.
If it is ever necessary for us to be late or absent, we will let you know as soon as possible, offer you the option of rescheduling, and reimburse you the value of the missed time.
If you fail to show for a scheduled appointment and give no notice, you may be billed for the appointment in full.
