Small print to be read before you make your reservation

THE TREATMENT AGREEMENT

You are entitled to honest and complete information. You will receive this information from the doctor during the initial consultation, which always precedes any treatment. The doctor will provide you with unambiguous and complete information about the treatment, options related to the treatment, any side-effects, the expected result, recovery period and aftercare necessary or desired, the medication, potential complications, risks and the costs.

The doctor expects you to provide honest information and answers related to the reasons why you want to undergo a procedure. He/she expects you to be open about your expectations with regard to the end result and provide truthful and complete information about any medication you are taking, your medical history and the condition of your health.

By signing the treatment agreement the patient acknowledges that all the terms and conditions related to the provision of information have been met and that he or she understands and agrees to this information. If you are of the opinion that you have not been adequately informed in a timely or comprehensible manner, we advise you not to grant your consent for the scheduled treatment.

You can request an additional, free consultation with your surgeon or other doctor at the Wellness Kliniek for a second opinion at any time. It is important that you look forward to your procedure with confidence and only then make a reservation for your treatment.
