The service provided through DDH-Clinic website Second Opinion Service is different from the diagnostic services typically provided by a physician. The FOSC providing this service will not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition. Therefore, the physician may not be aware of facts or information that would affect his or her opinion of your diagnosis. Because this is a limitation on the accuracy of his or her opinion, and this is a risk to you, the recommendations of the FOSC will be shared with your local physician. By deciding to engage this service, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of this limitation and agree to assume the risk of this limitation.
Your participation in this program will be considered an indication of acceptance of:
The diagnosis you will receive is limited and provisional;
The Second Opinion Service is not intended to replace a full medical evaluation or a face-to-face visit with a physician;
The FOSC physician does not have important information that is usually obtained through a physical examination; and,
The absence of a physical examination may affect the FOSC physician's ability to diagnose your condition, disease or injury.
The DDH-Clinic does not accept payment in the form of cash, check or money order. Major credit cards (Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Dinners) are the accepted means of payment. Once submitted, the DDH-Clinic maintains the right to utilize your credit card to make a payment for any services rendered under the Second Opinion Service. You agree to allow us to charge your credit card for services as they are rendered. In case your credit card expires or we cannot bill your credit card, we will send you a notice, and your request for services from the DDH-Clinic will not be fulfilled until full payment has been received and/or verified. Upon receipt, please provide us with a valid credit card we can charge for the amount due.
