It's not a dumb solution if it actually works!

@it's Caturday, it depends on what the appointment is for. My doctor usually charges a copay if you don't cancel a week ahead but they do charge $200 if you miss certain procedures yet are free if you miss other types. Depends on cost of materials I think.

If there is a charge for canceling, I'm a bit surprised there isn't a charge for rescheduling at the last minute. That's basically canceling. I'm thinking you got someone who didn't know what they were doing.

No my doctor's offices are the same. 24 hour notice or reschedule is no charge. Try to cancel within that last 24 hour time and they can charge you the full fee. So if you have no valid excuse then reschedule and if you have to then cancel a few days later.
