The clinical procedures performed are usually beneficial and seldom cause any problem. In rare cases, underlying physical defects, deformities, or pathologies may render the patient susceptible for injury. The medical provider, of course, will not provide specific health care if he/she is aware that such care may be contraindicated. It is the responsibility of the patient to make it known or to learn, through health care procedures, whatever he/she is sufering from: latent pathological defects, illnesses, or deformities, which would otherwise not come to the attention of the medical provider.

I agree to settle any claim or dispute I may have against or with any of these persons or entities, whether related to the prescribed care or otherwise, which will be resolved by binding arbitration under the current malpractice terms which can be obtained by written request.
