MEDICAL ADVICE

PD will provide goods or services to the customer based on the order sheet provided by the customer, and may from time to time discuss the case with the customer through email, telephone or in person. The customer acknowledges that such discussions, and any representations by PD, should be used merely as a guide rather than a definitive recommendation to adopt any specific action or treatment. Nothing transmitted in the course of such discussions shall constitute the establishment of a doctor-client-patient relationship between the customer and PD. Responsibility for the diagnosis of a medical condition, and for the prescription of treatment planning or medicines, rests solely with the customer.

GOVERNING LAW
21. These Terms are governed by the laws of New Zealand. No action or proceeding may be commenced or maintained in relation to the site, the Services or these Terms except in a New Zealand court.
