  • If you have extended health insurance coverage and you are seeing Dr. Stinton, you will be expected to utilize the insurance for payment through Dr. Stinton.
  • If you don’t show up for an appointment and you didn’t notify the Student Development Administrative Assistant 24 hours prior to the appointment, your student account will be charged a $75 fee.

Under extenuating circumstances, if you need to change or cancel your appointment within the 24 hour period, contact the Student Development Administrative Assistant.
