Professional Medical Advice Service

The service provided through the Professional Medical Advice Service is different from the diagnostic services typically provided by a physician. It is a remote diagnostic consultation and second opinion.

Professor Portinaro will not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you or child in person and observing your physical condition. There are important aspects of the practice of medicine that sometimes require a physician to personally examine and observe the condition of the patient.

Therefore, the physician may not be aware of facts or information that would affect his or her opinion of your diagnosis. Remote observation is limited by the nature and amount of information you will provide to Professor Portinaro through the service. Because this is a limitation on the accuracy of his opinion, and this is a risk to you,

you acknowledge that you understand the limitations of the remote diagnostic and treatment options provided. We suggest you to share the recommendations provided by our Service with your local physician.

By deciding to engage this service, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of this limitation and agree to assume the risk of this limitation.

Your participation in this program will be considered an indication of acceptance of:

  • The diagnosis you will receive is limited and provisional;
  • Professor Portinaro’s opinion received through our Service is not intended to replace a full medical evaluation or a face-to-face visit with a physician;
  • Professor Portinaro does not have the same amount or type of information that can be gained through an in-person physical examination, and that this information may be important to the services provided.
  • Due to the remote procedures the absence of a physical examination may affect Professor Portinaro ability to diagnose your condition, disease or injury.

If you engage in the service provided by this website you agree that you assume the risk of these limitations, and you understand that no warranty or guarantee has been made to you regarding the success of your treatment or the results of the service provided by Professor Portinaro’s Professional Medical Advice Service.
