Not doing so can cause reputational harm, inconvenience your patients, be an impediment to getting new patients (as they might want timings you no longer have), and generally make you come off less trustworthy.
Both your and your patients’ time is important. Value it, and give it the respect it deserves by keeping your schedule up to date so there’s no confusion about your availability.

This point pairs nicely with the first (keeping your schedule up to date). Whether you use your virtual calendar or make use of a physical one, make sure to have reminders on it to review twice a week to ensure it is up to date. This way you have an additional mechanism in place to keep your schedule on point.
