CHIROPRACTIC INFORMED CONSENT (For Chiropractic Patients ONLY)
Dr. Paul's goal is to provide you with adjunctive and supportive care for your health condition. We do not claim to treat or cure any disease or medical diagnosis.
Our office does not take insurance. However, a superbill may be printed out for you, so you can send it to your insurance. Most services at our office are not covered by insurance. These services are considered experimental and may not be billed to your insurance. Nutritional support may be offered for your case. Nutritional supplements are not FDA regulated and have not been proven to cure or treat any disease or illness.
Our services are not a replacement for your medical treatment. We choose to work alongside your medical provider as this serves you in the most effective manner possible.
Dr. Kwik will never give advice on the use of your medications. Medications must be managed by your medical doctor. You must work with a medical doctor for the management of any medications you take now or in the future.
I completely understand that there are no guarantees of help, correction, relief, or cure, written, spoken or implied. I understand that this clinic does NOT treat any disease or any medical diagnosis.
I am making a sane and conscious decision to seek advice as per the above understood terms for either myself and/or my dependents. In doing so, I agree to the above terms and acknowledge this with my signature below:
If agreed upon between Body Intelligent Center and myself, I hereby request and consent to the performance of chiropractic adjustments and any other chiropractic procedures, including examination test, diagnostic x-ray(s) and physical therapy techniques, on me (or on the patient named below for which I am legally responsible) which are recommended by the Body Intelligent Center.
I understand and am informed that, as in the practice of medicine, in the practice of chiropractic there are some risks to treatment including, but not limited to, fractures, disc injuries, strokes, dislocations and sprains. It is not reasonable to expect the doctor to be able to anticipate and explain all risks and complications of a given procedure on any particular visit, and I wish to rely on the doctor to exercise judgment during the course of the procedure which the doctor feels at the time, based upon the facts then known, is in my best interests.
I have read, or have had read to me, the above explanation of the chiropractic adjustment and related treatment. By signing below I state that I have weighed the risks involved in undergoing treatment and have myself decided that it is in my best interest to undergo the chiropractic treatment recommended. Having been informed of the risks, I hereby give my consent to that treatment. I intend this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment or my present condition and for any future condition(s) for which I seek treatment.
