Your healthcare provider is responsible for creating a personalized treatment plan based on the health information you’ve provided. They conduct their assessments based on what has been submitted. Based on these, it is equally your responsibility to provide honest and accurate information. Failing to do so can put you at risk of being misdiagnosed and for your conditions to not be treated properly. This is critical. Please bear this in mind. Should any changes arise, or if you need to update and clarify some information about your health, message or call us anytime.
This treatment may not be 100% effective. It could only work partially or may not at all resolve the condition for which you are seeking treatment. In case the treatment does not work, or you are experiencing side effects or worsening symptoms, you are encouraged to call or message us anytime. You may also directly call 911 or seek medical help immediately, in cases of emergency. In such instances, you may need to seek alternative treatment such as those listed below or in the follow-up plan.
Each time, there is always a risk for your healthcare provider to misdiagnose your condition, which in turn affects their recommendation for treatment. This risk is always present with a doctor in person, although finding additional signs and symptoms could aid in the assessment. The healthcare practitioners practicing through the Thrones Health platform rely on evidence-based practice, health guidelines, and clinical decisions for support to minimize these risks.

When your healthcare provider recommends a treatment, it’s deemed to be the most suitable treatment for you, meaning, potential benefits would outweigh potential risks. However, you are entitled to evaluate this information. Gather your own thoughts with the aid of the manufacturer’s insert, any inputs from your in-person healthcare team, as well as other relevant information you can get hold of, in order to decide if the treatment plan is appropriate for you. Regardless of what is recommended, it will still be up to you. You are free to not follow the recommendations given you, although this comes with risks typically associated with no treatment.
Your healthcare provider will always base their recommended treatment on the medical information you’ve provided and the medical guidelines appropriate for your case. But do know that alternative treatments are always available to you, even helpful in some cases. Some of these treatments may necessitate an in-person exam or procedure that the online platform cannot fulfill. You can still talk to us for advise or directly to your doctor in-person to consider these alternative treatments.
