Services Provided – No Medical Care or Advice by GoodMDs
We offer an online communication platform for Providers and their patients to connect via the Site through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunications technologies. The Site facilitates communication between patients and Providers.
GoodMDs does not provide medical advice or care. GoodMDs contracts with GoodMDs Medical Group, an independent, physician-owned medical group with a network of United States based Providers who provide clinical telehealth services. GoodMDs Medical Group Providers deliver clinical services via the GoodMDs platform to their patients. Providers are independently contracted or employed by the GoodMDs Medical Group. Providers are not contracted or employed by GoodMDs. The Providers, and not GoodMDs, are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you.
The Providers are independent of GoodMDs and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from GoodMDs. Your interactions with the providers via the Site are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither GoodMDs, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Site or Service, nor any information obtained on the Site. GoodMDs does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
GoodMDs does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the Site or Service. You will be provided with an available Provider based solely on the information you submit to the Site. You are ultimately responsible for deciding to accept the services of your particular Provider.
The content of the Site and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by GoodMDs. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. All information provided by GoodMDs, or in connection with any communications supported by GoodMDs, is intended to be for general information purposes only, and is in no way intended to create a provider-patient relationship as defined by state or federal law. While GoodMDs facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Providers, GoodMDs does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the GoodMDs Medical Group Provider.
Not for Emergencies
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
GoodMDs’s Site and Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Site. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately
You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.
Risks of Telehealth Services
By using the Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with telehealth services. These include but are not limited to the following: information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Provider; delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment; a lack of access to your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your health information.
Neither GoodMDs nor GoodMDs Medical Group endorses any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication, he/she will limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in his/her own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written. Providers do not prescribe DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. GoodMDs and GoodMDs Medical Group fully honor patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct GoodMDs Medical Group to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
Not an Insurance Product
Neither GoodMDs nor GoodMDs Medical Group are insurers. The Services are not insurance products, and the amounts you pay to GoodMDs or GoodMDs Medical Group are not insurance premiums. If you desire any type of health or other insurance, you will need to purchase such insurance separately.
