What We Do
Our services are provided through the Site (which may include Mobile Applications), which is a tele-health online solution that allows participating medical professionals and health care staff (“Healthcare Providers” or “Providers”) to communicate with their clients and patients (“Patients”) to provide health care services online and perform virtual house calls via a secure Internet connection (the “Services”). We are not a medical service provider, health insurance company, or licensed to sell health insurance.
The Services are not intended for use by health care providers and patients in connection with active patient monitoring so as to allow immediate clinical action or continuous monitoring by a health care provider or the patient.
USE OF OUR SERVICES IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR EMERGENCIES. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A MEDICAL OR MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY, OR IF AT ANY TIME YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR CARE OR TREATMENT, CALL 911 OR GO TO THE NEAREST OPEN CLINIC OR EMERGENCY ROOM.
While the Services may provide access to certain general medical information, and also allow patients to communicate with health care providers, the Services we provide cannot and are not intended to provide medical advice. We advise seeking the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions regarding personal health or medical conditions. Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from a doctor or other qualified healthcare provider because of something posted on the Site. If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem or condition, please contact a qualified healthcare professional immediately. THE CONTENT ON THE SITE IS NOT AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED MEDICAL ADVICE OR A SUBSTITUTE FOR INDIVIDUAL MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO YOUR health care providers FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT, INCLUDING INFORMATION REGARDING WHICH DRUGS, THERAPY, OR OTHER TREATMENT MAY BE APPROPRIATE FOR YOU. NONE OF THE INFORMATION ON THE SITE REPRESENTS OR WARRANTS THAT ANY PARTICULAR DRUG, THERAPY OR OTHER TREATMENT IS SAFE, APPROPRIATE, OR EFFECTIVE FOR YOU. FURTHER, A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER’S ABILITY TO USE OUR SERVICES is not an endorsement or recommendation of that health care provider by Scotland Primary Care.
To the extent medical advice is provided to you by a health care provider through the Services, such medical advice is based on your personal health data as provided by you to the health care provider and the local standards of care for your presenting symptoms, based on the information you provide. The medical advice provided by your health care provider is not under the control of Scotland Primary Care, nor is it provided to or used by Scotland Primary Care.

Continued use of the Site or Services following posting of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and satisfaction with the Services as so modified. We also reserve the right to discontinue the Site and/or Services at any time without notice. We will not be liable to you or any third-party should we exercise our right to modify or discontinue the Site or the Services.
