MyFace2FaceMD™ also provides other types of administrative services and information (“Services”). MyFace2FaceMD™ does not provide medical care or practice medicine or any other licensed profession, and MyFace2FaceMD™ does not interfere with the practice of medicine or other licensed profession by Providers. All of the participating Providers have independently contracted to be in the network operated by physician groups, and are solely responsible for their services and compliance with any requirements applicable to his or her professional license. MyFace2FaceMD™ does not provide any physicians’ or other Providers’ services itself, and neither MyFace2FaceMD™ nor any third parties who promote its services shall be liable for any professional advice you obtain from a Provider via the MyFace2FaceMD™ Services.

    Your interaction with the Providers through the Service is not intended to replace your relationship with your existing primary care physician. MyFace2FaceMD™ is not an insurance product nor a prescription fulfillment warehouse. The Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.

Rather, the MyFace2FaceMD™ Services enable access to Providers who have agreed to provide patient care to Customers using MyFace2FaceMD™’s Services. These Terms of Use apply to your use of the Site and to your registration for, subscription to, and use of the MyFace2FaceMD™ Services.

  2. Prescription Policy.

    Providers may prescribe medications when medically indicated in their sole professional judgment, however, due to varying state laws, prescriptions may not be available in your state. MyFace2FaceMD™ is not a drug fulfillment warehouse. In the event that a Provider does prescribe a medication, he/she will comply with all applicable federal and state laws and will only prescribe a medication as determined appropriate in his/her sole discretion and professional judgment. MyFace2FaceMD™ does not guarantee that a provider will issue a prescription.

    NOTE: Prescriptions for DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, non-therapeutic drugs and certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse are not available via the MyFace2FaceMD™ platform.

    You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider shall 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.

  3. Informed Consent

    A. Telemedicine is the delivery of health care services using interactive audio and/or video technology, where the patient and Provider are not in the same physical location. During your telemedicine consultation with a Provider details of your medical or health history and personal health information may be discussed through the use of interactive audio, video, and/or other telecommunications technology, and the Provider may perform a physical exam through these technologies. Depending on your medical or health history and/or specific complaint, you may be asked to provide information through other electronic means, and verify your identity with a driver’s license or other legal document.

    B. The telemedicine services you receive from Providers are not intended to replace a primary care physician relationship or be your permanent medical home. You should seek emergency help or follow-up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed, and continue to consult with your primary care physician and other health care professionals as recommended. We may make arrangements for follow-up care either through the Provider, a health systems partner, or other health care providers. If the transmission fails during your telemedicine consultation with a physician, then a member of our customer support team will contact you to help you get reconnected. You will have direct access to customer support services to follow-up on medication reactions, side effects, or other adverse events. Among the benefits of MyFace2FaceMD™’s Service is improved access to health care professionals and convenience. However, there are potentials risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:

    1. In some instances the information transmitted may be of insufficient quality to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Provider (i.e., poor resolution images, etc.);
    2. Delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failure of the electronic equipment;
    3. In some instances a lack of access to all of your medical records may result in adverse drug reactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors;
    4. Although the electronic systems we use will incorporate networks and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, in some instances, security protocols may fail and cause a breach of privacy and/or personal health information.

    C. By accepting these terms of use you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:

    1. You understand that you may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of telemedicine in your care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured;
    2. You understand that the laws that protect the privacy and security of health information apply to telemedicine and you have received MyFace2FaceMD™’s privacy practices which describe these protections in more detail;
    3. You understand that you are fully responsible for payment; and
    4. You understand your Provider, in his or her sole discretion and professional judgment, may determine that telemedicine services are not appropriate for some or all of your treatment needs and, accordingly, may elect not to provide telemedicine services to you through the MyFace2FaceMD™ platform.
