Informed Consent for Medisurge Services
While TDO LABS is an honest attempt to provide access to the best possible medical information to the patient, the Medical Experts will not be examining you physically. The Medical Expert may not have access to all or some of your medical history that might be critical to consult you. The Medical Expert will not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person, observing your physical condition and by going through your medical records. This means that the service provided through TDO is different from the diagnostic and treatment services typically decided by a physician. Therefore, the physician may not be aware of facts or information that would affect his or her opinion of your diagnosis. To reduce the risk of this limitation, TDO LABS strongly encourages you to be in touch with an on-ground physician and share the TDO LABS opinion with him/her. By deciding to engage this service, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of this limitation and agree to assume the entire risk of this limitation;
By requesting a medical opinion through TDO LABS, you acknowledge and agree that:
- The advice/information/opinion on diagnosis you may receive could be limited and provisional;
- The medical opinion is not intended to replace a face-to-face visit with a physician just yet and it replace an actual Doctor-patient relationship;
- In case of a second opinion where there is a difference of opinion among our Medical Experts and your physician, you would bear the responsibility to decide the next step. We hope to help you in making the right decision but at the end it is only up to you to share our consultants’ opinion with your physician or to go for another physical exam (if needed) or to reach-out to TDO for offline consultation, or procedure, and/or treatment;
- The physician is reliant on information provided by you and hence any information demonstrated to have been falsified will immediately render the opinion and all details therein null and void;
In some cases, the consultant may determine that the transmitted information is of inadequate quality and may ask for more information, without which he/she may refuse to answer the query;
In rare cases, the consultant may feel that the query may not be answerable without physically examining the patient and the consult may be refused forthwith;
In very rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information;
