Is it legal for a doctor to charge no-show fees, when they have never seen the patient or have their paperwork?

Question Details:

Daughter has never seen this doctor and was not aware of the 24 hour cancellation policy. The office had no paperwork, and their was no agreement as to their office procedures. This is not about, "it is their time." I want true legal law.
