"Quote by Arfy…

"Dr Cole promised a refund and reneged."

It was not up to Arfy. Done.

Yes it was up to Arfy, if he had agreed to accept the lower offer, he chose not to .... Done.

Again, my point was that your case, your documentation, proves that consent forms in fact do NOT act as gag orders. If they did then you would not be speaking as freely as you are due to these alleged legal constraints disguised as consent forms. I hope you understand now.

How long was it again before Arfy felt comfortable sharing his story with the public, 12 - 18 months ? The consent form did a pretty good job of gagging him for this time period ...... You cant have it both ways he was gagged by a consent form for a period of time "


Those were Arfy's words. Not mine. HE said that the offer was "reneged". If you wish to debate Arfy on this then by all means, go ahead but it has no bearing on the facts. Arfy was not silenced by the consent form he signed. And yes, done.

What Arfy "felt comfortable" with is irrelevant. It's what he is bound to, or not bound to, by the disclaimer he said he signed that IS relevant and what he signed did not prevent him from speaking. It was his comfort level, as you just stated and not the form itself. Remember, Dr. Woods is talking about legal forms, not comfort forms.

Do you understand what a consent form is? Consent forms are put in place as requirements by the various medical organizations (AMA, NHS, etc.) to make sure patients can make a decision based on all of the relevant information that they are legally entitled to have. In the UK, the NHS says the following about consent.

"Consent to treatment is the principle that a person must give their permission before they receive any type of medical treatment or examination. This must be done on the basis of a preliminary explanation by a clinician.

Consent is required from a patient regardless of the intervention – from a physical examination to organ donation.

The principle of consent is an important part of medical ethics and the international human rights law."

It's a big deal when something is referred to as a human right but this is what informed consent is about. By saying you have been informed about a procedure does not give a doctor automatic rights to take a patient to court for saying they are unhappy. It's beyond ludicrous to say so and informing patients about what can happen at other clinics is not considered to be informed consent. At best it is uninformed consent.
