Terms and Conditions
1. Website Content
Other than the personalized content we send you in a message within or through the Site or the personalized advice we give you during a video visit, you should not consider Content on the Site to be medical advice.
2. User Accounts
When you register on the Site, you need to create an account ("Account") by entering your name, email address, password, telephone number, physical address, and certain other information we need to know in order to provide the Service. You may not transfer or share your Account password with anyone, or create more than one Account. If you create more than one Account this substantially limits our ability to provide appropriate care because we have no way of linking your various accounts and no way of knowing that previous accounts you set up relate to you. If you create more than one Account this increases the chances that you will experience serious adverse events from any medicines we prescribe. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account password and for all activities that occur under your Account. You are responsible for changing your password promptly if you think it has been compromised. To change your password go into ‘Account’ within the Site. We reserve the right to take any and all action, as it deems necessary or reasonable, regarding the security of your Account. You may not use anyone else’s account at any time.
3. Right to Modify
4. Ownership of Site
Certain names, logos, and other materials displayed on the Site may constitute trademarks, trade names, service marks or logos ("Marks") of Medzino or other entities. You are not authorized to use any such Marks without the express written permission of Medzino. Ownership of all such Marks and the goodwill associated therewith remains with us.
6. Services Provided - Medical Care/Advice from Medzino
We offer an online telehealth communication platform for Providers and their patients to connect via the Site through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunications technologies. The Site facilitates communication between patients and our Providers regarding consultations and treatment options for men’s health, women’s health, sexual health, skin conditions; chronic health conditions; and healthy wellbeing (i.e. smoking cessation, acid reflux, cold sores, and migraine relief).
Medzino doctors provide medical advice and/or care through diagnoses and prescription services. Medzino contracts with United States based Providers who provide clinical telehealth services. These Providers deliver clinical services via the Medzino platform to their patients. Providers are subject to Medzino's background checks and credentialing processes before they are able to consult on the Medzino platform.
Medzino and the Providers are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you. The Providers are employed by Medzino and are using the Site as a way to communicate with you only. Your interactions with the Providers via the Site are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Medzino does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
You should always seek the advice of qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions.
**IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A HEALTH-RELATED EMERGENCY, CONTACT 911 OR GO TO THE NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM IMMEDIATELY.**
7. Risks of Telehealth Services
By using the Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with telehealth services. These include but are not limited to the following: information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Provider; delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment; a lack of access to your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your health information. You are asked to review the Telehealth Consent Form included with these Terms as Exhibit A.
8. Prescription Services
Neither Medizno nor its contracted doctors endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication, he/she will limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in his/her own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written.
Providers do not prescribe DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services. You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will 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. Medzino and our partner pharmacy fully honor patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct your Provider to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.

INFORMED CONSENT FOR TELEHEALTH SERVICES
Telehealth involves the use of electronic communications to enable healthcare providers at different locations to share individual patient medical information for the purpose of improving patient care. Telehealth services offered by Medzino may also include chart review, remote prescribing, appointment scheduling, health information sharing, and non-clinical services, such as patient education. The information you provide may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or patient education, and may include any combination of the following: (1) health records and test results; (2) images and asynchronous communications; (3) live two-way audio and video; (4) interactive audio with store and forward; and (5) output data from medical devices and sound and video files.
The electronic communication systems we use will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient identification and imaging data and will include measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
Medzino Services are an addition to, and not a replacement for, your primary care physician. Responsibility for your overall medical care should remain with your local primary care doctor if you have one, and we strongly encourage you to locate one if you do not.
- Improved access to care by enabling you to remain in your home while the Medzino provider consults and obtains test results at distant/other sites.
- More efficient care evaluation and management.
- Obtaining the expertise of a specialist as appropriate.
- Delays in evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment and technologies.
- In rare events, our provider may determine that the transmitted information is of inadequate quality, thus necessitating a rescheduled telehealth consult or a meeting with your local primary care doctor.
- In very rare events, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.
- In rare events, a lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors.
If you need to receive follow-up care, assistance in the event of an adverse reaction to the treatment, or in the event of an inability to communicate as a result of a technological or equipment failure, please contact Medzino at [PHONE NUMBER].
By checking the box associated with "Informed Consent", you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:
- I hereby consent to receiving Medzino’s services via telehealth technologies.I understand that Medzino and its providers offer telehealth-based medical services, but that these services do not replace the relationship between me and my primary care doctor.

I understand that telehealth may involve electronic communication of my personal medical information to other health practitioners who may be located in other areas, including out of state.
- I understand there is a risk of technical failures during the telehealth encounter beyond the control of Medzino. I agree to hold harmless Medzino for delays in evaluation or for information lost due to such technical failures.
- I understand that I have the right to withhold or withdraw my consent to the use of telehealth in the course of my care at any time, without affecting my right to future care or treatment. I understand that I may suspend or terminate the use of the telehealth services at any time for any reason or for no reason. I understand that if I am experiencing a medical emergency, that I will be directed to dial 9 - 1 - 1 immediately and that Medzino providers are not able to connect me directly to any local emergency services.
- I understand that alternatives to telehealth consultation, such as in-person services are available to me, and in choosing to participate in a telehealth consultation, I understand that some parts of the services involving tests may be conducted by individuals at my location, or at a testing facility, at the direction of the Medzino provider(e.g.labs or bloodwork).
- I understand that I may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of telehealth in my care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.
- I understand that my healthcare information may be shared with other individuals for scheduling and billing purposes. Persons may be present during the consultation other than the Medzino provider in order to operate the telehealth technologies.I further understand that I will be informed of their presence in the consultation and thus will have the right to request the following: (1) omit specific details of my medical history/examination that are personally sensitive to me; (2) ask non - medical personnel to leave the telehealth examination; and/or (3) terminate the consultation at any time.
