COVID-19 Informed Consent Agreement


I, the undersigned patient, consent to an in-person consultation and/or to have my Provider and/or his/her staff (hereinafter collectively “my Provider”) perform medical procedures, whether regarded as necessary, elective or aesthetic, during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic and after. I understand in-person consultations and/or having my procedure performed at this time, despite my own efforts and those of my Provider may increase the risk of my exposure to COVID-19. I am aware that exposure to COVID-19 can result in severe illness, intensive therapies, extended intubation and/or ventilator support, life-altering changes to my health, and even death. I am also aware of the possibility that the procedure itself may result in a more severe case of COVID-19 than I might have had without the procedure.

I also understand in-person consultations and/or having my procedure performed at this time increases the risk of my transmission of COVID-19 to my Provider & the Practice Staff. This virus has a long incubation period, there may be as yet unknown aspects of its transmission, and I realize that I may be contagious, whether or not I have been tested or have symptoms. To reduce the possibility of COVID-19 exposure or transmission at my Provider's office, I accept that my Provider will implement infection-control procedures with which I must comply, before, during and after my consultation and/or procedure, for my own protection as well as that of my Provider. I understand my cooperation is mandatory, whether or not I personally feel such COVID-19 procedures and/or preventive measures are necessary.

I have informed my Provider of any COVID-19 testing I or any person living with me during the past 14 days has received, as well as the results of that testing, and if I am tested between now and the date of my procedure, I will immediately provide the results of that testing to my Provider. I understand my Provider may require that I be tested, possibly at my own expense and regardless of any prior testing, and that the results of that testing must be satisfactory to my Provider before I may receive my procedure.

I confirm neither I nor any individual living with me has any of the COVID-19 symptoms listed by the Centers for Disease Control https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/COVID19-symptoms.pdf, which website I have consulted; neither I nor any individual living with me during the past 14 days has experienced any such symptoms; and that I and all persons living with me for the past 14 days have practiced all personal hygiene, social distancing and other COVID-19 recommendations contained within all governmental orders issued by my city and state. I understand I must honestly disclose this information to avoid putting myself and others at risk.

All topics above have been discussed with me, and all my questions have been answered to my satisfaction. Being fully informed, I accept the risk of COVID-19 exposure and I will bear the cost of any COVID-19 treatments required. I have been given the opportunity to postpone my in-person consultation and/or procedure until the COVID-19 pandemic is less prevalent, but I choose to have my in-person consultation and/or procedure performed now. I have read this COVID-19 Informed Consent Agreement and am authorized to consent on my behalf.
