NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP : I am a registered naturopath in Australia. I will not entertain you unless you have completed and submitted the new client questionnaire. I will discuss with you your medical condition and the possible treatment based on the information that you have disclosed. I will initiate action only after you have communicated your decision to proceed with any treatment and only after your assurance that you have a complete understanding of the situation, and the risks associated with the decision at hand. I will also advise you on any significant risk which will affect the judgement of an intelligent, and reasonable client. You always have the right to refuse any proposed treatment approach in its entirety or any part or phase of the treatment affecting only certain parts of your body.
DISCLAIMER ON CONSULTATIONS : The above notwithstanding, I do not practice medicine and I do not diagnose nor treat diseases or medical conditions. My services are not intended to be a replacement for or substitute for those of a licensed physician. I advise you, if needed, to be under the care of a licensed physician and encourage open communication between myself and your current medical practitioner. I do not handle medical emergencies of any kind and refer my clients as such to ring 000 or go to the emergency room of their local hospital. I will not provide you any medical or other professional advice or opinion as a result of web-based consultation with me.
If you provide personal health information to me in the course of a consultation, the consultation shall not involve or constitute the practice of medicine or any other profession. It will not create a physician- patient relationship between us, and is not intended to be a substitute for a physical examination and face-to-face consultation with your personal physician.
All matters regarding your health require medical supervision by a healthcare professional selected by you. You and your personal health care providers shall have exclusive authority and control over your health and health care, including all diagnosis, treatment and other determinations related thereto, and nothing discussed in a consultation between us is intended to or shall influence, restrict or interfere with your personal healthcare providers’ exercise of independent clinical, medical or professional judgement in providing healthcare services to you.
As such, I shall not be liable or responsible for, and you hereby release me from any loss, claim, liability or damage allegedly arising from any information or suggestion made during any consultation between us or from any material or content found in this website, including but not limited to articles and blogs.
In addition to the foregoing, you understand and agree that your participation in the consultation is pursuant and subject to all applicable rules and regulations adopted from time to time by me, as well as pursuant and subject to the Terms & Conditions, the Member License and the Privacy Agreement of Kate Driver naturopath and women’s health coach (the “Additional Agreements”), the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, and you agree to comply with such rules and regulations and the Additional Agreements by participating in the consultation.
