In consideration of Physicians Rejuvenation Centers, Inc. providing the undersigned patient with medical management, administrative and referral services, Patient acknowledges and agrees to the following terms and conditions contained in this Patient Authorization Agreement. With this Agreement, Patient submits with this Agreement an accurately completed Medical History Form. Patient agrees to respond to truthfully, accurately and completely in completing the MHF and acknowledges that failure to provide truthful, accurate and complete information on the MHF or to PRC or the physicians referred by PRC could result in inappropriate treatment.
Patient authorizes and PRC to obtain on my behalf medical laboratories, diagnostic testing, physicians and dispensing pharmacies. In addition, Patient authorizes and instructs PRC and physicians referred by PRC and dispensing pharmacies obtained on my behalf to provide medical care and prescribed pharmaceuticals based on the MHF, laboratory diagnostic tests, and other information submitted to PRC under this Agreement. Patient agrees to present photo identification upon any blood testing pursuant to a PRC or Physician test requisition. Patient acknowledges that therapies and laboratory and diagnostic testing services supplied or obtained by PRC, and medical services provided to me by Physicians, are not covered or reimbursed by Medicare or other insurance.
Patient acknowledges that PRC employees and agents are not licensed physicians and that Physicians obtained on my behalf by PRC are independent contractors, which will be compensated by Patient with funds provided to PRC. Patient acknowledges that PRC does not practice medicine and that PRC is a medical management, administration and referral service and does not direct, control or influence the treatment decisions made by Physician. I further understand and agree that PRC and Physicians are rendering the medical care, services and treatment and that PRC is instructed and authorized to arrange for the prescribed pharmaceuticals to be dispensed and sent to me by any pharmacy in my country of residence. Patient covenants and agrees to comply with the method of instructions, treatment and dosage schedules prescribed by Physician, to immediately cease any medical treatment prescribed by Physician in the event of any adverse reaction or side effect arising from prescribed treatment, and to immediately provide PRC and Physician with written notice via fax to 561-844-8142 of any such adverse reaction or side affect. I further acknowledge and agree that PRC is not liable for any negligent act or omission of the Physician.
Patient acknowledges that diagnosis and treatment may involve risk of injury, and that PRC and Physician have made no guarantees or warranties with respect to the above-described diagnostic testing, analysis of test results, examination of medical history or hormone treatment. Patient acknowledges that the hormone blood level objective sought as a result of Patients hormone replacement therapy, as prescribed by Physician, may be at the highest level of a standard reference range for Patients age and sex, or, in some cases, above such range, to the level of a younger person, and that such range is experimental and may not render any benefits, but may result in unknown, adverse results. Patient is aware of the nature, risk and possible alternative methods of treatment, possible consequences, and possible complications involved in such hormone replacement treatment. Patient acknowledges that recombinant human growth hormone replacement therapy involves the use of a medical drug approved for one purpose for a new and different purpose in an effort to obtain a desired objective of medical treatment. Nonetheless, Patient consents to such care and treatment, and executes this Agreement with a complete, informed understanding of such hormone replacement therapy for the purpose of authorizing Physician to administer such treatment to relieve body ailments and attempt to enhance Patients physical condition and health. Patient further acknowledges that the methods of medical treatment offered by PRC and Physician are not accompanied by any claims, guarantees, promises or warranties.
Patient is freely seeking medical consultation via the Internet and acknowledges and consents to Physician reviewing Patient’s medical history without having the opportunity to conduct an in-person physical examination. Patient solicits PRC for a specific prescription medication to treat an already-identified medical or cosmetic condition. Patient acknowledges that Physician may not be licensed to practice medicine in Patients state or country of residence. Further, Patient agrees that Physicians consultations, diagnoses, and treatments will be deemed to have occurred in Florida, where physician is licensed to practice medicine.
Patient represents that he or she is under the care of a primary care physician and that Physician will not rely or substitute the advice of Physician should it conflict with the advice given to me by Patients primary care physician. Before taking any medication prescribed by Physician, Patient agrees to have a comprehensive physical examination by his or her primary care physician. Patient agrees to notify his or her primary care physician and advise such physician that Patient is undergoing hormone replacement therapy.
Patient acknowledges that under Florida law, physicians are generally required to carry medical malpractice insurance or otherwise demonstrate financial responsibility to cover potential claims for medical malpractice. PHYSICIAN HAS DECIDED NOT TO CARRY MEDICAL MALPRACTICE INSURANCE. This is permitted under Florida law subject to certain conditions. Florida law imposes penalties against noninsured physicians who fail to satisfy adverse judgments arising from claims of medical malpractice. This notice is provided pursuant to Florida law.
Patient acknowledges and agrees that PRC is not responsible for the negligent or intentional acts or omissions of any health care provider or supplier that Patient is referred or for any action or inaction taken by Patient, that the total liability of PRC, its officers, directors, employees, agents and stockholders is limited to the purchase price of any products through PRC, Physicians or pharmacies, and that PRC and Physicians will not be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages. During Patients relationship with PRC and Physician, PRC and Physician will convey to Patient a range of proprietary business information, including, confidential disclosures and trade secrets business practices and PRC customers and suppliers. No matter how received by Patient during the parties relationship, Patient agrees that Confidential Information is confidential, proprietary and uniquely valuable to PRC and gravely affects the conduct of business of PRC and PRC goodwill. Patient agrees not to disclose, divulge or communicate, in any fashion, form, or manner, either directly or indirectly, any of Confidential Information or take any action that may result in disclosure of Confidential Information to any third-party person, firm, or business. Patient agrees that if the terms of this paragraph are breached, PRC shall be conclusively deemed to be irreparably injured and shall be entitled to an injunction restraining Patient from disclosing any of the Confidential Information and to liquidated damages. Patient agrees that the amount of PRC actual damages in such circumstances would be difficult, if not impossible, to determine with accuracy, but would be substantial in any event, and Patient agrees that such liquidated damages are not a penalty.
Based on the above-understanding, Patient agrees to release PRC, its officers, directors, employees, agents and shareholders, and Physician from any and all liability associated with or arising from the Physicians consultation or from the medical, physical, behavioral or other effects of any medication or treatment that may be ordered, prescribed or purchased as a result of the Physicians consultation.
