The Terms and Conditions is the legal agreement (the “Agreement”) that governs your (“You”, “Users”) use of the Services, whether you are a Patient, Doctor or visitor in the Website. By using Doocle, you confirm that you have read and agreed to be bound by this Agreement. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND, ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORISED TO ACCESS OR USE DOOCLE AND YOU SHOULD EXIT THE SERVICES AND CANCEL ANY CONSULTATION IMMEDIATELY.
We will preserve the text of this Agreement as you entered into, and it will remain available on the Website. However, We encourage you to save or print this Agreement for future reference.
Doocle is NOT for EMERGENCY or URGENT situations.
IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE IN AN URGENT OR EMERGENCY SITUATION, YOU SHOULD SEEK IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE FROM YOUR LOCAL DOCTOR / EMERGENCY ROOM. DO NOT USE DOOCLE.
1.1 The Doocle platform enables Patients and Doctors or other medical professionals to schedule video consultations for medical advice through a real-time connection using video streaming (collectively the “Services”).
1.2 We provide the Services remotely. The Services include:
remote video and voice consultations with Our healthcare professionals;
the ability to enter questions and symptoms to determine the best course of action for healthcare needs;
the ability to ask questions of Our healthcare professionals;
the ability to upload images for the medical professional to use; and
access to healthcare records as uploaded onto Doocle only. Doocle medical professionals will access your medical records only from the Services.
1.3 The Services are delivered through the Website and any other platform that We may provide.
1.4 Some medical conditions are not suitable for remote consultations. Patients should always seek advice from a medical doctor in person if they have concerns about medical needs and advice being communicated through the Services.
2.1 You can register for an Account if you are at least 18 years of age.
2.2 Children or young persons under the age of 18 may not use the Services.
2.3 To sign up, you must provide your full name, telephone number, email address and complete address. You warrant that any information you submit is yours, accurate, complete and up-to-date.
2.4 Your Account is not transferrable. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account and registration credentials. You are also fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you actually authorised them. We take no liability for any loss or damage arising from their unauthorised use.
2.5 You should notify Us immediately of any unauthorised use of your Account and logins or any other breach of security that you know or suspect.
This Agreement is binding between you and Us as soon as:
3.1 You receive the confirmation for your Account and logins from Us; or
3.2 You access or use the parts of the Services that are not dependent on creating an account.
4.1 If you are a Patient, you are ultimately responsible for choosing your own Doctor and communicating with the Doctor through the Services.
4.2 You acknowledge that the medical services provided by Doctors through the Website differ from the typical diagnosis services offered by other qualified healthcare providers. Doctors will not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining a Patient in person and observing your physical condition and, consequently, may be unaware of information that would affect the nature of the medical services provided.
4.3 You agree to contact a Primary Care provider immediately should your condition change or your symptoms worsen. If you are not registered with a Primary Care provider, you agree to contact a local hospital for advice.
4.4 You acknowledge and agree that any complaint, grievance or claim you may have that is in any way connected with a Doctor and/or Doctor’s practice must be addressed and brought directly against the Doctors or their practice, and not against Us.
5.1 We make no representation or warranty as to the content of any advice, treatment or other response from any Doctor / medical professional. Doctors are independent contractors and not Our employees. We do not endorse any views expressed or advice provided by Doctors.
5.2 We do not guarantee that a remote consultation is the best course of accessing advice or indeed the appropriate course of treatment for a particular healthcare concern or medical issue. The absence of a physical examination may affect the Doctor’s ability to diagnose your condition, disease or injury.
5.3 The Services are not substitute for a primary care provider. Doocle is for second opinions only and is not intended to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a healthcare provider. Any diagnosis provided by Doctors to a Patient is limited and provisional. You should discuss any second opinion provided by a Doctor through the Services with your own healthcare provider.
5.4 The Content on Our Website is provided for education, scheduling, booking appointments, allowing communications between the parties and general information only. You must not disregard, avoid or delay obtaining medical advice from a qualified healthcare provider based on what you have read on the Website.
5.5 The Content provided on the Website about the Doctors has either been obtained by Us from generally available public records and databases, written by Us from publicly available information and databases, or has been submitted to Us by Doctors. We do not provide medical services.
6.1 Any provision of medical services by the Doctor to you is directly between both of you as two parties. You acknowledge that We are not a party to such arrangement, booking or contract. The provision of any medical services including second opinions by a Doctor to you shall be governed by your contract with each other.
6.2 “Medical Services” means the medical consultation, advice, treatment, assistance, procedure or other services that the Doctor will provide to you through the Doocle platform.
6.3 The Services are not substitute for a primary care provider. Doocle is for second opinions only and is not intended to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a healthcare provider. Any diagnosis provided by Doctors to a Patient is limited and provisional. You should discuss any second opinion provided by a Doctor through the Services with your own healthcare provider.
6.4 We are not an employer of the Doctors, nor do We guarantee to introduce any quantity of Patients to Doctors.
6.5 We have no control over and cannot guarantee the availability of any Doctor at any particular time. We will not be liable for cancelled or otherwise unfilled appointments, or any injury resulting therefrom, or for any other injury resulting or arising from or related to the use of the Services whatsoever.
6.6 You are strongly advised to perform your own investigations on the Doctor, including, but not limited to, making confirmatory telephone calls to the appropriate licensing or certification authorities to verify listed credentials and education, or contacting and speaking with a current Family Physician / Primary Care provider and the medical association(s) relevant to the Doctor’s specialty.
7.1 Consultations are charged per blocks as set by your chosen Doctor.
7.2 Patients may only purchase a complete Consultation and not individual minutes.
7.3 Rebate, refund or compensation will not be given to the Patient for non-usage of any partial or full time available in a Consultation, nor for failing to prevent the start of a new Consultation.
7.4 If you end a Consultation, this may prevent the communication and receiving of the Services. We are in no way liable if you choose to end the consultation prematurely.
7.5 Consultation times are subject to change and are only made available to Patients at Our sole discretion. If the Service is inaccessible or there are no appointments available to suit you, you miss an appointment you have made or start a connection that fails or attend an appointment that has been cancelled, you understand and agree that it is your sole responsibility to seek appropriate alternative medical advice from alternative service providers.
7.6 We may record consultations, activity, and data for the purposes of providing the Services, ensuring the quality of the Services, and giving you access to recordings of your use of Services.

8.2 You warrant without exception that any information you provide is honest, legitimate and an accurate representation of your situation as you see it. With regard to information from other service providers or otherwise uploaded to the Services, you warrant and confirm that such additional information is accurate, legally provided and was not tampered.

15.4 The Doctor, at his or her sole discretion, provides a diagnosis based on his or her own professional judgement and legal obligations, and the information communicated by the patient. Note that online consultations have limitations in this regard and an online diagnosis must not be substituted for a face-to-face consultation with relevant history-taking, physical examination, and interpretation of investigations in person.
