How do I hold a surgery date?

After a consultation, a patient signs a contract with Dr. Love and makes a $500 non-refundable and non-transferable deposit to hold a surgery date. This deposit is deducted from the total surgery fee.  There are many entities (Dr. Love, office staff, anesthesiologist, surgery facility staff) involved in making the surgery possible so we must hold surgery dates with this deposit as non-refundable to ensure it is a confirmed surgery appointment.
