This is the Cancellation & Scheduling Policy (“Policy”) for appointments with David Lechnyr, LCSW.
Acceptance to Terms
To schedule an appointment with me, you must use the online scheduling program and add a card on file to the scheduling service to reserve your appointment. In some cases, a deposit may be required. If you schedule an appointment online with me, you accept these terms, conditions, limitations, and requirements. If you do not agree to this Cancellation & Scheduling Policy, do not schedule an appointment online with me.
Agreement to Changes
I may in my discretion change this Cancellation & Scheduling Policy, or any aspect my online scheduling, without notice to you. If any change to these terms is found invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that change is severable and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining changes or conditions. SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT WITH ME AFTER I CHANGE THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY CHANGES, YOU MUST NOTIFY ME OF THIS IN WRITING WITH A MINIMUM OF 48 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR NEXT SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT.
Cancellations & Rescheduling
When we schedule an appointment together, this time is set aside and reserved specifically for you. I also limit the number of clients that I see so that I can give you the focus and attention you deserve. As a result, it is extremely difficult to fill cancelled sessions on short notice. All cancellations require 48 hours’ notice to avoid being charged the full cost for the missed session (not just the copay). Insurance will not pay for this.
If possible, I will try to find a time before the end of the week to avoid this fee. If you do not have any future appointments remaining, please reschedule using the link sent in the cancellation confirmation email.
If you are ill or if we both agree that you were unable to attend due to circumstances beyond your control, any fee assessed will be used as a non-refundable deposit to apply to any future sessions. However, cancellations due to changes in your work schedule, childcare, or cancellations for convenience are still your responsibility to pay.
While I send out email and/or text reminders as a courtesy, you should not depend on these as technology can be unreliable. If you cancel your appointments often or do not show up, I may limit your future appointment scheduling until we can discuss your situation further.
To cancel an appointment, call the office at 541-344-2256.
All users who are minors in the jurisdiction in which they reside (generally under the age of 18) are not permitted to register for the Website or use the Company Services.
By scheduling an appointment with me, you are consenting to receive email, a call, and/or text message to remind you about your upcoming appointment(s). Normal cell phone charges may apply.
Authorization for Electronic Communications
By scheduling an appointment online, you are agreeing to communicate with me via unencrypted e-mail or text message (“Electronic Communications”). This means I may transmit individually identifiable information about you, to you, via Electronic Communications.

Any individually identifiable information transmitted via Electronic Communications pursuant to this authorization will not be encrypted. As the electronic transmission of information cannot be guaranteed to be secure or error-free and its confidentiality may be vulnerable to access by unauthorized third parties, I shall not have any responsibility or liability with respect to any error, omission, claim or loss arising from or in connection with the Electronic Communication of information by me to you.
By scheduling an appointment online with me, you hereby expressly authorize me to communicate electronically with you, which may include the transmission of your individually identifiable information electronically. In the event you no longer wish to receive Electronic Communications from me, you may revoke this authorization by providing written notice to me at 1598 Pearl Street, Suite 2, Eugene, Oregon, 97401.
You agree that I may communicate with you electronically unless and until you revoke this authorization by submitting notice to me in writing. This authorization does not allow for electronic transmission of your protected health information to third parties and you understand you must execute a separate authorization for your protected health information to be disclosed to third parties.
You hereby authorize the transmission of your protected health information electronically as described above.
