No Doctor-Patient Relationship or Medical Advice

Communication of information by, in, to, or through this Web site and your receipt or use of it (1) is not provided in the course of and does not create or constitute a doctor-patient relationship, (2) is not intended as a solicitation, (3) is not intended to convey or constitute medical advice, and (4) is not a substitute for obtaining medical advice from a licensed physician. You should not act upon any such information without first seeking a qualified professional regarding your specific matter. Selecting a physician is an important decision that should not be based solely upon Web site communications or advertisements.

You also should not rely upon the transmission of an e-mail message to a physician through this Web site to create a doctor-patient relationship. The transmission or exchange of information will not do so. Without a doctor-patient relationship in the matter, we cannot assure you that your communications will be confidential or that we will treat them as such. Please do not send us any confidential or sensitive information until you speak with one of our physicians and obtain prior written authorization to send that information to us.
