Note, Island Daily Medical, PLLC. (“The Family MD,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) is not a medical group. Any telemedicine consults obtained through our Site are provided by independent medical practitioners including, but not limited to, Bicycle Health Medical Group, P.A. (“Bicycle Health Medical”), an independent medical group with a network of United States based health care providers (each, a “Provider”). Bicycle Health Medical (or your own medical provider if you do not use a Bicycle Health Medical Provider) is responsible for providing you with a Notice of Privacy Practices describing its collection and use of your health information, not Bicycle Health. If you do not agree to be bound by those terms, you are not authorized to access or use our Site, and you must promptly exit our Site.
1. Services Provided – No Medical Care or Advice by The Family MD
The Providers are independent of The Family MD and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from The Family MD. Your interactions with the Providers via the Site are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither The Family MD, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Site or Service, nor any information obtained on the Site. The Family MD does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
The Family MD does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the Site or Service. You will be provided with available Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Site. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider.
The content of the Site and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by The Family MD. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. All information provided by The Family MD, or in connection with any communications supported by The Family MD, is intended to be for general information purposes only, and is in no way intended to create a provider-patient relationship as defined by state or federal law. While The Family MD facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Providers, The Family MD does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the Provider you select.
The medical services, treatment, and care you receive may vary depending on the Provider you interact with. Please contact your Provider directly for any questions regarding your care or medical treatment.
Not for Emergencies
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
The Family MD’s Site and Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Site. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.
Risks of Telehealth Services
Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. In order to use the Service, you will be required to review and agree to an informed consent regarding the use of telehealth (the “Patient Consent”) that will be provided to you by the Providers through the Site. You agree that The Family MD is a third-party beneficiary of the Patient Consent and has the right to enforce it against you.
Prescription Policy Certain products available through the Site require a valid prescription by a licensed healthcare provider. You will not be able to obtain a prescription product unless you have completed a consultation with one of the Providers through the Site, the Provider has determined the prescription product is appropriate for you and the Provider has written a prescription.
If a Provider determines a prescription product is appropriate for you and writes a prescription, you may fill the prescription at any pharmacy of your choice as prompted during your use of the Service.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. The Family MD fully honors patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct your Provider to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.

15.No Third Party Rights
17.Supplemental Terms Applicable to Providers
To be a healthcare provider using the Site (for purposes of this Section 17, “Provider” or “you”) you must be a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional contracted or employed by The Family MD, and must agree to comply with all laws, medical board rules, and other rules and regulations applicable to you as a Provider or otherwise. Your relationship with the The Family MD users (including, but not limited to, your The Family MD Medical patients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with The Family MD. The Family MD does not practice medicine and offers no medical services. As set forth more fully below, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices, and other interactions with patients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Provider and The Family MD are each responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, and The Family MD shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.
The Family MD does not provide any medical advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or medical issues associated with Provider, goods, or services offered by Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations. Provider should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and should not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining Provider’s compliance obligations under law. Provider and The Family MD agree that The Family MD is not providing to customers, patients, or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice. THE THE FAMILY MD SITE AND THE SERVICES ARE NOT MEANT TO SUBSTITUTE OR MODIFY YOUR PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT IN ANY WAY.
Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical practice. While software products such as the Site and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider can offer patients, many factors, including but not limited to the provider/patient relationship can affect a patient outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Site and Services, and the provision of medical services to Provider’s patients. In this regard, Provider releases The Family MD and waives any and all potential claims against The Family MD as a result of Provider’s use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s patients.
As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold The Family MD harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any patient of Provider, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a patient, which is brought against The Family MD, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider’s use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain The Family MD’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of The Family MD or defect in the Site or Services. The Family MD will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement.
If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images, or other materials to us or our Site (“Provider Content”) or provide any Provider Content to patients or other consumers, you agree not to provide any Provider Content that (a) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (b) violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets, or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (c) contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component. Provider is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary agreements and consents from, and providing all required notices to, patients and other consumers. You agree not to contact other users through unsolicited e-mail, telephone calls, mailings, or any other method of communication. You represent and warrant to The Family MD that you have the legal right and authorization to upload all Provider Content at the Site. The Family MD shall have a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable right and license to use the Provider Content however The Family MD desires, including without limitation, to copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from or sell or distribute such Provider Content or incorporate such Provider Content into any form, medium, or technology throughout the world. The Family MD is and shall be under no obligation: (i) to maintain any Provider Content in confidence; (ii) to pay to you any compensation for any Provider Content; or (iii) to respond to any Provider Content.
The Family MD does not regularly review Provider Content, but does reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Provider Content submitted to the Site. You grant The Family MD the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Provider Content. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Provider Content.

18.ARBITRATION REQUIREMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS MAY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. APPLICABLE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Exceptions and Opt-out. As limited exceptions to the above:
you may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and
we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our respective intellectual property rights.
Initial Dispute Resolution and Notification. You agree that before initiating any Dispute or arbitration proceeding, we will attempt to negotiate an informal resolution of any dispute. To begin this process, before initiating any arbitration proceeding, you must send a Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) by certified mail to the attention of The Family MD’s Legal Department at the The Family MD address set out below. In the Notice, you must describe the nature and basis of the Dispute and the relief you are seeking. If we are unable to resolve the Dispute within 45 days after The Family MD’s receipt of the Notice, then you or The Family MD may initiate arbitration proceedings as set out below.
Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. Any arbitration will be conducted by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by these Terms. The JAMS Rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to JAMS and give notice to the other party as specified in the JAMS Rules. JAMS provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com. JAMS will appoint an arbitrator that is either
a retired federal or state court judge, or
an attorney who has been licensed to practice law in the state of New York for at least 10 years. The arbitration will be conducted by an in-person hearing, unless we both agree otherwise.
If JAMS fails or declines to conduct the arbitration for any reason, we will mutually select a different arbitration administrator. If we cannot agree, a court will appoint a different arbitration administrator.
Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or other municipality) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement. During the arbitration, both you and The Family MD may take one deposition of the opposing party, limited to 4 hours. If we cannot agree on a time and location for a deposition, the arbitrator will resolve any scheduling disputes.
Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If you assert a claim against The Family MD, you will be responsible for paying a $250 consumer filing fee. The Family MD will pay for all other filing, administration and arbitrator fees and expenses. If your Dispute is for less than U.S. $10,000 (including attorneys’ fees and costs) and the arbitrator, upon final disposition of the case, finds your Dispute was not frivolous, The Family MD will reimburse your initial filing fee. If we prevail in arbitration, we will pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
Class Action Waiver. YOU AND THE FAMILY MD AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, neither JAMS nor the arbitrator may consolidate another person’s claims with your claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding for any purpose.
