Practice Policies


At ShanthiMD Dermatology, your privacy is of utmost importance. All of our employees are highly familiar with and abide by the state and federal regulations regarding the privacy of individual healthcare information (HIPPA – the Health Care Insurance Privacy and Protection Act- April, 2003).

Office visits are by scheduled appointment only. It is very, very important to us that you have a good experience. In order to maintain the highest standards of care, patients who arrive more than 15 minutes late will be asked to reschedule their appointment unless they can be accommodated within a reasonable timeframe.

Cancellations within 24 hours of your appointment time or failure to show for your appointment without a phone call will result in a $50 cancellation fee. Please allow enough time for traffic and parking. For your convenience, there is free parking for one hour in our covered parking structure with easy elevator access!

A consultation fee is applicable to all new cosmetic consultations (please call for fee information). However, this fee can be waived if treatment is performed during your consultation appointment or applied to future cosmetic services performed by Dr. Colaço. Payment of cosmetic services is required at the time of service. Our office accepts payment in the form of cash, check, or credit card.
