Patient Responsibilities

It is our privilege to serve you. To fully participate in all aspects of your care you are expected to be responsible, to the best of your ability, for the following actions in support of your treatment:
  • Provide a complete and accurate medical history, including medications and drugs you have used, previous illnesses, injuries or medical care you have received, and your current health status.
  • Ask questions when you do not understand.
  • Follow your provider’s instructions once you have agreed to the recommended care.
  • Accept the consequences of your actions if you choose not to follow your provider’s recommendations, which may include discharging you from the practice if your refusal prevents us from providing care according to ethical and professional standards.
  • Take care of your financial obligations to MFHC.
  • Be aware of the rights of other patients, MFHC staff, and MFHC property.
  • Keep scheduled appointments and be on time for those appointments.
  • Actively participate in decisions concerning your health care.
