LEGAL DISCLAIMER, IN PLAIN ENGLISH
Personalized Wellness Plans are designed for generally healthy people and for people with chronic, stable conditions and symptoms. Personalized Wellness Plans (PWP) are not appropriate for acute disease or for a new illness, especially with significant symptoms that have not yet been appropriately evaluated by your local primary care provider. Please see your local health care provider for acute illness, new symptoms as well as for your ongoing care. Virtual Medicine has limits, as does Dr Sachs’ role as a consultant.
Dr Sachs reserves the right to reject your PWP application and refund your fee, if she feels she cannot safely help you.
