You are entitled and invited to seek further information as to this advice including what evidence exists for the use of any prescribed assessment or treatment, safety and risk factors involved in an assessment or treatment, possible outcomes and costs likely to be incurred with any treatment.
Some assessments and treatments may be considered to be outside the parameters of conventional medicine (considered “complementary, unconventional and/or emerging”) as defined by non-integrative medical doctors. You understand that some doctors may see these treatments as complementary, unconventional or emerging and may lack placebo-controlled double-blind studies of their scientific proof such that their use currently remains controversial. Some tests or treatments recommended will not be covered by Medicare and/or Private Health Insurance.
