Treatment Authorization: *
I (print name)
consent to the use or disclosure of my protected health information by -View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C. for the purpose of diagnosing or providing treatment to me or my minor child, obtaining payment for my health care bills or to conduct necessary health care operations at 1-View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C.
Notice as to Nature of Services: I understand that the care I receive at 1-View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C. may be nontraditional or unconventional. Many of these services may not be recognized as standard medical practices, and may be considered investigational or experimental. Medications prescribed may be approved by the FDA for a different condition than that for which it is prescribed for me. I understand my doctor may request laboratory evaluation that may include venipuncture, analysis of stool, urine, saliva and breath.
Notice that Services are not Primary Care: I understand that no physician or any other practitioner I see at 1-View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C. is acting as my primary care physician unless otherwise agreed to by a physician in writing. As such, emergency services are not offered. I understand that even though my physician(s) and I-View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C. practitioners may address issues affecting my general health, the practice is focused on psychiatric care and it is in my best interest to have a primary care physician to ensure that I am fully apprised of all available conventional means to address any medical conditions I may have. This is also important because services are exclusively office-based and are not affiliated with a hospital. If I become so ill that I require hospitalization, it is vital that I have a primary care physician with hospital admitting privileges familiar with my health problems and history. I understand that in addition to a primary care physician, it may be in my best interest to have appropriate specialists, such as a cardiologist if I have cardiac problems or a pediatrician if I am seeking treatment for my children. I also understand that it is my responsibility to inform 1-View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C. who my primary care physician and specialists are, to let my physician know of any diagnoses I have received, and of any treatments I have had or am now undergoing for current conditions, and that I should keep my physicians and any practitioners I see informed on an ongoing basis. I also understand that it is very important to let my primary care physician know about any treatments performed at 1-View Psychiatric NP & Behavioral Therapy P.C. in order to properly and safely coordinate my care.
