Try this formula

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(TEXT(B2:B2628,"MMMYY")=$D$2,MATCH(A2:A2628,A2:A2628,0),""), IF(LEN(A2:A2628)>0,MATCH(A2:A2628,A2:A2628,0),""))>0,1))

where cell D2 should contain a month text in the form of "JUL11"

To get a count of distinct customers by month:

1) In C1 of your original worksheet, add a label such as Unique Customers

2) In C2, add this formula...
=1/SUMPRODUCT(($A$2:$A$2628=A2)*(TEXT($B$2:$B$2628,"yyyy-mm")=TEXT(B2,"yyyy-mm")))
then copy that down through C2628

3) Create a PivotTable, with ApptDate as the row field, and (sum of) Unique Customers as the data field

4) Rightclick one of the dates in your PivotTable, and select Group from the popup menu.  Group your dates by year and month

Please see the attached sample file.
