Neither Doctor Help nor any third party that promotes the services or provides this service will be responsible for any professional advice obtained from a treatment provider through the Services.
None of the contents of the site (apart from the information received from the Suppliers) or the first contact with the services included in the sites, should be considered as Medical advice or an endorsement, representation or guarantee that any particular medication or treatment is safe, appropriate or effective for you.
- The services included in Doctor Help correspond to the provision of health care services using chat, interactive audio and video technology, in which the patient and the health professional are not in the same physical location of the applicant. During the service consultation with a treatment provider, the details of your health history and personal medical information can be discussed with you through the use of interactive video, audio or other telecommunications technology and your treatment provider who can practice a medical exam through these technologies.
- The services you receive from providers are not intended to replace a primary or permanent medical care relationships. It is possible to form an ongoing treatment relationship with some treating providers. However, your initial visit with a treatment provider will begin as a consultation (for example, to determine the most appropriate treatment setting for you to receive care) and does not necessarily result in a continuous treatment relationship. You should seek emergency help, or when recommended by a treatment provider, or when necessary otherwise follow-up care, and consult with your Primary Care Physician and other health professionals as recommended.
We can arrange for follow-up care, either through Doctor Help or other means. You will have direct access to customer service for monitoring reactions to medications, side effects or other adverse events. Among the Benefits of our services is the best access to health and comfort professionals using the technological means available for this purpose. However, as with any health service, there are potential risks associated with the use of the services. These risks include, but are not limited to:
- In rare cases, the information transmitted may not be sufficient (for example, due to poor image resolution) to allow an appropriate health care decision by the treatment provider.
- Delays in evaluation or treatment may occur due to failures of electronic equipment. If this happens, you can be contacted by phone or other means of communication.
- In rare cases, lack of access to all of your health records may result in adverse drug effects or allergic reactions or other errors of judgment.
- Although the electronic systems we use will incorporate network protocols and software security to protect the privacy and security of health information, Rarely, security protocols may fail, causing a violation of the privacy of personal medical information.
- You understand that it is possible to expect the Advance Benefits of using the services in your care, but that the results cannot be guaranteed or assured.
- You understand that the laws that protect the privacy and security of health information apply to services, and you have received notification from Doctor Help about privacy practices.

- If your membership coverage does not include or is not sufficient to meet the cost of services in full, you may be fully or partially responsible for payment.

The messages you send through the sites can be viewed by more than one agent or customer service and treatment provider and will usually be answered within 48 hours.

You understand and accept that the messaging treatment with the providers through the messaging portal does not result in a doctor-patient relationship and does not do so on its own to treatment, diagnosis, therapy or medical advice.

In addition, the information you provide to your treatment provider in the medical consultation or therapy session is legally confidential, with certain legal exceptions.
