PATIENT’S REQUEST FOR MEDICAL SERVICES

Perhaps you have heard reports of a “malpractice crisis.” Lawsuits can be costly, time-consuming and distracting. This form is for patients requesting medical care by the [MEDICAL PRACTICE NAME], and its employees and affiliates, including but not limited to [DOCTORS’ NAMES] (jointly and severally, the “Clinic”). Feel free to decline to sign this form, or see a different doctor. You may freely use our phones to call anyone for advice in filling out this form.

If the answer is “yes”, then stop now and request emergency help immediately.

Each provision shall be severable from the remainder and enforceable to the fullest extent of the law.
