Intent / Description of Phone Consultation
I understand that this is a phone call consultation only and this is NOT meant to replace a complete examination or evaluation. The intent of this phone consultation is not diagnosis or treat any condition, but merely to review your case and discuss the available options, answer any questions, and the current treatment models. I understand that the doctor doesn't have all data necessary to make a complete diagnosis or prognosis regarding treatment, exams, x-rays and any other testing. I acknowledge that, by preliminarily reviewing any diagnostic imaging or having a pre-treatment consultation to determine whether it is appropriate for NCC to treat you, neither NCC nor Dr.Chris Barker, D.C, are accepting your case for treatment. I agree that my case will be accepted for treatment only if Dr. Barker and NCC provide a written plan agreeing to establish a doctor-patient relationship. Until that time, I agree that no doctor-patient relationship has been established by any preliminary review of any diagnostic imaging or a pre-treatment consultation even if I have been charged fees for such review or consultation. I further agree that the initial review or preliminary consultation with NCC is only for purposes of determining whether your case is appropriate for treatment performed by NCC and Dr. Barker.
