The Site is intended to facilitate the provision of the Service to registered users.

IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, IMMEDIATELY CALL 91.1
THE SERVICE MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR ALL MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR CONCERNS.
THIS SERVICE ENABLES COORDINATION AND COMMUNICATION WITH A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER.
IT DOES NOT REPLACE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ANY PHYSICIAN.
Our Service is currently only available to individuals utilizing the Service in the United States.
Health care providers providing Services through the Site, or as facilitated by Dr. Hank, are licensed to practice in the states in which they treat patients.
SPECIAL CONSENT TO TELEHEALTH SERVICES
Telemedicine involves the delivery of health care services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a health care provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. Telemedicine may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or patient education, and may include, but is not limited to:
- Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information, or other data between a patient and health care provider;
- Interactions between a patient and health care provider via audio, video, and/or data communications; and
- Use of output data from medical devices, sound, and video files.
The electronic systems used in the Service will incorporate reasonable network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information and imaging data, and will include measures to safeguard the data to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
RISKS OF TELEHEALTH SERVICES
By using the Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with telehealth services. These include but are not limited to the following: information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Provider; delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment; a lack of access to your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your health information.
YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH DR. HANK
Dr. Hank provides a platform for you to consult with our pharmacy partners, and obtain access to additional information, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your health care and wellness. By submitting your information to the Pharmacy, you authorize the Pharmacy personnel to contact your physician using the contact information you provide, or by other means. The health and wellness resources made available through our Service are not a substitute for direct in-person health care services in all cases. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both rests with you and the health care provider. You understand that by coordinating and in certain cases consulting with a health care provider through the Service, you are not entering into a provider-patient relationship with Dr. Hank.
Our pharmacy partners include Dunklau Pharmacy Holdings, LLC, PostMeds, Inc., and PCM Venture I Pharmacy (each, a “Pharmacy”).
Dr. Hank does not endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication through the Service, he/she will limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in his/her own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee that a prescription will be written. Providers do not prescribe DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. Dr. Hank honors patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct Dr. Hank to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
In some cases, a health care provider may use the Service to provide advice or treatment to you. A health care provider consulting with you through the Service may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. Therefore, the health care provider may not be aware of facts or information that would affect his or her opinion of your diagnosis. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation, Dr. Hank strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss all diagnosis and treatment options with a health care provider. Moreover, a health care provider utilizing Dr. Hank may be limited by state law in prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination. By deciding to engage the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) the diagnosis you will receive is limited and, in some cases, provisional; (ii) the health care services are not intended, in all cases, to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a health care provider; (iii) a health care provider acting through the Service may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on” physical examination; and (iv) the absence of a physical examination may affect the health care provider’s ability to diagnose your condition, disease or injury.
Other than the personalized content we may send you through an in-App message, you should not consider Content on the Site to be medical advice.
REGISTRATION AND USER ACCOUNTS
You agree to keep in confidence your username and password and to exit from your Secure User account at the end of each session. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for all activities that occur under your account. You are responsible for changing your password promptly if you think it has been compromised. You may not transfer or share your password with anyone, or create more than one account. Creating more than one account substantially limits the ability for a health care provider using the Service to provide appropriate care and may be unsafe to you. Dr. Hank explicitly disclaims liability for any and all losses and damages arising from your failure to comply with this section. You may not use anyone else’s account at any time.
