CONSENT TO CARE

A patient coming to the doctor gives him/ her permission and authority to care for them in accordance with appropriate test,

diagnosis, and analysis. The clinical procedures performed are usually beneficial and seldom cause any problem. In rare

cases underlying physical defects, deformities or pathologies, may render the patient susceptible for injury. The doctor, of

course, will not provide specific healthcare, if he/ she is aware that such care may be contraindicated. It is the responsibility

of the patient to make it known or to learn through health care procedures from whatever he/ she is suffering from: latent

pathological defects, illnesses, or deformities, which would otherwise not come to the attention of the physician.

I agree to settle any claim or dispute I may have against or with any of these persons or entities, whether related to the

prescribed care or otherwise, will be resolved by binding arbitration under the current malpractice terms which can be

obtained by written request.

I have read and understand the foregoing.
