SPECIAL NOTE ON THE TERM PRESCRIPTION USED ON SKINMILES
Prescription is not to be construed as a written instruction by Dr Alek Nikolic as a medical practitioner, that authorises a patient to be issued with a medicine or treatment but only amounts to a recommendation. A patient who has not consulted in person is not a patient but rather an online customer. A person who has not consulted in person with the medical practitioner can in no way whatsoever be held to have received an actual written prescription. All use of the products must be followed by the product’s instructions for application. No liability can be ascribed to the medical practitioner where there was no physical one on one consultation.
