DocSuggest Healthcare Services Private Limited ('DocSuggest', docsuggest.com, 'Site', 'we', 'us') provides its services to you subject to the notices, terms, and conditions set forth in this agreement (the "Agreement"). These terms of use (the "Terms of Use") govern your use of the Site, both as a casual visitor and as a registered user.

In addition, when you use any DocSuggest service (e.g., Doctor Search, Call Centre enquiry), you will be subject to the rules, guidelines, policies, terms, and conditions applicable to such service, and they are incorporated into this Agreement by this reference. By using the Site, and/or by registering with us, you signify that you agree to these terms of use, including that you consent to the information practices disclosed in Privacy Policy.

DocSuggest reserves the right to change this Site and these terms and conditions at any time.

DocSuggest retains the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated any of these Terms of Use.

Accessing, browsing or otherwise using the Site indicates your agreement to all the terms and conditions in this agreement, so please read this agreement carefully before proceeding.

We are not a medical practitioner or provide medical advice

The Information that you obtain or receive from DocSuggest, and its employees, contractors, partners, sponsors, advertisers or otherwise on the Site is for informational and logistical purposes only.

The information provided on the Site is not intended as a substitute for, nor does it replace professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Do not disregard, avoid or delay obtaining medical advice from a qualified health care professional. Do not use the Site for emergency medical needs. Your use of information provided on the Site is solely at your own risk. Nothing stated or posted on the Site or available through any service is intended to be, and must not be taken to be, the practice of medicine or the provision of medical care.

We do not recommend or endorse any specific tests, physicians, procedures, opinions, or other information that may appear on the Site. If you rely on any of the information provided by the Site, you do so solely at your own risk.

Contents Posted on Site

You are responsible for any notes, messages, emails, postings, photos, profiles, opinions, ideas, images or other materials or information posted or transmitted to the Site (collectively, "Content"). Such Content will become the property of DocSuggest. DocSuggest shall be entitled to, consistent with our Privacy Policy, use the Content or any of its elements for any type of use forever, including but not limited to promotional and advertising purposes and in any media whether now known or hereafter devised, including the creation of derivative works that may include Content you provide. You agree that any Content you post may be used by DocSuggest, consistent with our Privacy Policy and Rules of Conduct on Site as mentioned herein, and you are not entitled to any payment or other compensation for such use.

No Contractual or Professional Relationship

By using the services of DocSuggest, no contractual or professional relationship is created between the patient and the health care provider.

DocSuggest makes every effort to validate the qualifications of the medical professional, as we aspire to become a single source of quality information to provide non-emergency medical care. Nevertheless, we make no guarantees, representations or warranties whatsoever, whether expressed or implied, with respect to professional qualifications, expertise, quality of work or other information herein. Further, we do not, in any way, endorse any individual described herein. In no event shall we be liable to you or anyone else for any decision made or action taken in reliance on such information.

We cannot guarantee the availability of any health care provider at any particular time. We will not be liable for cancelled, delayed or otherwise unfulfilled appointments or any injuries resulting there from, or for any other injuries resulting from the use of the Site or Services whatsoever.

You are strongly advised to perform your own investigation prior to selecting a health care provider including verification of listed credentials and education.

Fees and Charges

Even though the DocSuggest provides free of charge service to search and book appointments with the health care provider, the health care provider will charge for the usual consultation and medical services rendered. DocSuggest has no control or concern with the fees and costs charged by health care professional listed by the Site or informed by the call centre team. The charges incurred for any medical services rendered by collaborating health care professional profiled on the Site will apply and will be entirely your responsibility.

In addition, DocSuggest has all the rights to levy any penalties for non-standard behaviour including consistent 'No-Shows'. In any case, DocSuggest will warn the user for any such impending penalties. This is done to discourage and/or stop any person and/or entity jeopardising the true intent of our service.
