We encourage you to call us as soon as you schedule your appointment. We cannot provide support if you call on the day of your appointment, but will do our best to provide support if you call in the days prior to your appointment. Learn more here.

Why does the phone go to voicemail when I call?
Our line is a “warm line” meaning we don’t have people available to answer the phone but we will get back to you within 24 hours of your call. The voicemail inbox is only accessible to a few people in order to keep the line as secure as possible.
