Medical licensing rules may prohibit physicians from providing medical
advice to patients in states and countries where they are not licensed.
In some cases these rules provide that the communication of medical
advice by E-mail constitutes the practice of medicine in the state or
country where the patient is located when the E-mail is received. As the
faculty of Visitech is not licensed to practice medicine in all
jurisdictions and they have no way to determine where you will receive
their E-mail replies, they cannot and will not provide medical advice by
E-mail even if they have physically examined you or reviewed medical
records provided by your health care provider.
In light of the above, you acknowledge and agree that:
- Submitting a web form or sending E-mail to Visitech and/or
receiving E-mail from Visitech WILL NOT establish a doctor-patient
relationship. If you have, or suspect that you may have, a health
problem, please consult with your health care provider immediately.
- Replies from Visitech ARE NOT INTENDED as medical advice.
Accordingly, you agree not to rely on them as a diagnosis of your
medical condition, as a confirmation of your medical diagnosis, or
as a recommendation of one or more treatments.
- Replies from the faculty of Visitech MAY INCLUDE instructions on
referrals to physicians, general information about retinal, macular,
or vitreous problems tailored to address your specific inquiry, and
general information about recognized treatments and surgical
procedures tailored to address your specific inquiry. RELIANCE ON
ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY Replies from the faculty of VISITECH IN
THEIR E-MAILS OR THROUGH THE WEB SITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. IN NO
EVENT SHALL Visitech, OR ANY OF ITS FACULTY MEMBERS, DOCTORS OR
STAFF ASSOCIATED WITH Visitech, HAVE ANY LIABILITY UNDER ANY THEORY
WHATSOEVER FOR PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE
OR NATURE ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OR RELIANCE
ON ANY INFORMATION THAT IS SO PROVIDED.
- Replies from Visitech are not encrypted and therefore, like all
unencrypted E-mails, may be intercepted and viewed by others.
Accordingly, you agree not to send or request information by web
form or E-mail that you consider confidential or sensitive in
nature. You also give your consent to Visitech for responding to
your inquiries by E-mail, and agree that the faculty of Visitech
shall not be liable for any breach of confidentiality or privacy
that may result from interception of such E-mails by any third
