I'd use the comma. Be consistent with your punctuation. Otherwise it's OK.

Good morning.

(1) Here in the United States, most people feel that a comma is mandatory after "however."

(2) Therefore, you might want to write:

book an appointment; however, I dialed the incorrect....

Thank you.

P. S. "Dialed" is American spelling.
