A. Unfortunately, we can’t always offer our clients their preferred timeslot. We do try to accommodate your needs where we can but if your preferred timeslot is not currently available, we recommend accepting another timeslot and asking for a note to be placed on your file to notify you if your preferred timeslot becomes available. We will always try to offer current clients their preferred timeslot before offering them to a new client.
