Booking of Surgeries and Consultations and Advance Payments
You understand that The Esthetic Clinics operates out of multiple hospitals and centers and that booking a surgery/procedure involves a significant involvement of time and labor on our part. You also understand that we need to pay advances to book your surgery and procedures. These advances include but are not limited to payments made to our surgeons, anesthetists, nurses, facilities and for booking the facilities of other hospitals. Having run into losses with patients, who book surgeries, then compare prices with other centers and finally cancel surgeries, often without any updates to us, we have revised the terms and conditions for advance booking of a surgery, as explained below.
We now mandate the payment of an advance amount, for the booking of any surgery, from 01012014. This advance is typically the equivalent of 50% of the total surgery fees payable to The Esthetic Clinics. You, paying the advance amount towards booking your surgery, is taken as you being aware of and understanding the terms and conditions, associated with surgery booking, as enclosed herein.
Should any surgery or procedure be booked by you, by paying an advance and then the same is cancelled/ postponed by you for any reason, barring any life threatening medical emergency to the patient, you understand that the advance paid by you towards booking the surgery, will be forfeited by you, in total. NO REFUND will be payable to you, in such case, by The Esthetic Clinics and/or its associates or affiliated hospitals.
For any life threatening medical emergency, you will be within your rights to postpone your surgery, provided that the same is informed at least 12 hours in advance, to The Esthetic Clinics. For this, you must present to The Esthetic Clinics and be examined by our doctors OR your condition must be certified by at least two independent Registered Medical Practitioners of repute and good standing and must be substantiated by medical reports.
Finally, you agree that you will indemnify The Esthetic Clinic against any damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) arising out of a claim by a third party relating to any material you have posted.
You agree that this Agreement is entered into between you and us in the State of Maharashtra, India and is performed within the State of Maharashtra and governed by and shall be construed in all respects under the laws of the courts of Mumbai, exclusive of its choice of law or conflict of laws provisions. In any claim or action by you directly or indirectly arising under this Agreement or related to the Service, you and we each irrevocably agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Mumbai.
If any of the provisions of this Agreement are held to be not enforceable by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, then such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.
