Medical Disclaimer

You agree to seek immediate medical attention should your condition change or your symptoms worsen. If you require immediate medical attention, you should contact your local emergency services immediately. Although DocChat recruits Providers who are highly skilled and trained in their area of expertise, all Providers are independent contractors, and are therefore solely responsible for any treatment response. You are solely responsible for all information and/or communication sent during a video/telephone/email consultation or other communication. DocChat does not guarantee that a video/telephone/consultation is the appropriate course of treatment for your particular health care problem.

Service & Use of Services

DocChat Services provides a tele-medical healthcare resource to connect individuals with participating physicians (the “Providers”) in real time, via live streaming video, telephone, instant message, text message, and/or secure e-mail for the diagnosis and treatment of patients. It is not intended to replace your normal checkups, physical and or relationship with a primary care physician or specialist.

*DocChat and its physicians reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of these Services.

DocChat grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to access, use and display its service (“Account”) subject to the Terms herein on any machine(s) or device(s) on which you are the primary user; in each case (a) in compliance with these Terms, and (b) to the extent permitted under all applicable laws and regulations (foreign and domestic). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall not, and shall not permit anyone else to, directly or indirectly: (i) copy, modify, reproduce, translate, localize, port or otherwise create derivatives of any part of the Service or Content (as defined below); (ii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or structure, sequence and organization of all or any part of the Service; (iii) rent, lease, resell, distribute, use the Service for timesharing, service bureau, or otherwise exploit the Service in any unauthorized manner; (iv) remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels on or in the Service or Content; (v) engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Service; or (vi) engage in any fraudulent activity or activity that facilitates fraud. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

Our Service may change from time to time and/or we may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Service (or features within the Service), possibly without prior notice to you.

DocChat retains the exclusive right without obligation to introduce, discontinue or reintroduce any services or features at its discretion.

DocChat is not intended for use outside the states specified in the listing on our site at DocChat.io/providerstates. Accessing the Services from outside of these territories is prohibited.

Prescriptions

The Providers do not prescribe Narcotic medications under any circumstances. Each state has its own rules and regulations in regards to writing prescriptions; prescriptions may not be available in your state. The Provider has sole discretion as to whether or not a prescription is appropriate, as well as to the quantity, and there is no guarantee a Provider will write a prescription. Although a DocChat Provider may write a prescription, DocChat is not a pharmacy and DocChat shall not provide any medication to you. You must obtain those from a pharmacy. DocChat does not guarantee that a prescription will be written.

You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider shall be solely for your personal use. You further 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.
