Informed Consent for Oriental Medical Treatments and Consultations
I hereby request and consent to the performance of all procedures within the scope of the practice of a Doctor of Oriental medicine, including but not limited to, herbal treatment, therapeutic nutrition, homeopathy, dietary and lifestyle consultation and recommendations, acupuncture and other physical procedures, on me (or on the patient named below, for whom I am legally responsible) by Dr. Tansy Briggs, DOM (Dr. Briggs) and/or other doctors of Oriental medicine who now or in the future treat me while employed by, working or associated with, or serving as back-up for Dr. Briggs, including those working at the same clinic or office, or any other office or clinic, whether signatories to this form or not.
There are some risks to treatment. If physical procedures such as acupuncture and moxibustion or heat therapies are used, risks include but are not limited to some bruising of the skin, slight bleeding, risk of burn and/or scarring. The risk of infection is small when all needles are sterile. Needles are considered sterile when they are either disposable or are autoclaved according to applicable state legal requirement.
I do not expect Dr. Briggs to be able to anticipate and explain all risks and complications. I wish to rely on the doctor to exercise judgment which she feels at the time is in my best interest, based upon the facts then known, during the course of the procedure.
I understand that I have the choice to accept or reject the proposed diagnostic procedure or treatment, or any part of it, before or during the diagnosis or treatment.
I understand that Dr. Briggs is not providing Traditional Western medical care, and that I should look to my Western primary care practitioner (i.e. MD) for those services and for routine check-ups.
I understand that the estimated number of times I may need to return for treatment will be determined after the initial visit or phone consultation, and Dr. Briggs has not committed to any treatment/consultation other than the initial visit or consultation.
I understand that the estimated frequency of treatment/consultation will be determined after the initial visit or phone consultation.
I have had an opportunity to discuss with Dr. Briggs the nature and purpose of Integrative Oriental medicine. I understand that results from any treatment are not guaranteed.
I understand that all phones consultation(s) with Dr. Briggs are for educational purposes, as an introduction to Integrative Oriental Medicine approaches to health.
I have read the above information, or have had it read to me. I’ve had the opportunity to discuss the above information with the doctor. I understand this information.
