I hereby request and consent to the performance of the following diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities of oriental medicine on me (or the patient named below, for whom I am legally responsible) by any licensed doctor of Oriental Medicine credentialed by Gambei: acupuncture and other oriental medicine procedures; pulse evaluation; manual palpation on a variety of areas of my body; muscle, orthopedic and neurological testing; modes of physical therapy such as massage, heat/cold therapy, electrical and/or magnetic stimulation; the prescription of herbal and homeopathic medicines, as well as dietary supplements, exercise regiments and lifestyle counseling.
I have had the opportunity to discuss with a doctor of Oriental Medicine the nature and purpose of acupuncture, including the procedures and treatment protocols associated with oriental medicine. I understand that, although acupuncture and other medical procedures have helped millions of people, no guarantee of cure or improvement in my condition is given or implied.
I understand and am informed that, as in the practice of conventional medicine, in the practice of Oriental Medicine there are some risks of treatment. I understand that while unlikely, possible risks include, but are not limited to: bleeding, bruising, pain or other strong sensations at the location of needle insertion, nerve pain, aggravation of current symptoms, appearance of new symptoms, puncture of organs, and burns. I do not expect the doctor to be able to anticipate and explain all risks and complications, and during course of treatment I wish to rely on the doctor's judgment, based on the facts then known.
I have read or have had read to me, the above consent. I have also had an opportunity to ask questions about its content, and by signing below, I agree to the above named procedures. I intend for this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment for my present condition and any future condition(s) for which I seek treatment.
