Only our ED treatments offer a recurring subscription service. Toenail Fungus treatments are billed monthly for a period of 6 months, at that time. You can renew the service by conducting a follow-up visit with the doctor to assess your progress and continue treatment. Most patients see the best results by treating the condition for 12 months.
If you sign up for a subscription, your subscription will continue and automatically renew until terminated at the price, intervals, and other terms that you agreed to when signing up. Please see the Billing and Cancellation section below for more information on payment information, cancellation, refunds, and changes to subscription plans.
BILLING AND CANCELLATION
We accept credit and debit cards issued by U.S. banks, as well as PayPal. If a credit card account is being used for a transaction, Distinct Dermatology may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the payment. All charges and fees will be billed to the credit card you designate during the setup process. If you want to designate a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card, you must change your information online. This may temporarily delay your ability to make online payments while we verify your new payment information.
You represent and warrant that if you are making online payments that (i) any credit card, debit card, and bank account information you supply is true, correct, and complete, (ii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit/debit card company or bank, (iii) you will pay the charges incurred by you in the amounts posted, including any applicable taxes, and (iv) you are the person in whose name the card was issued and you are authorized to make a purchase or other transaction with the relevant credit card and credit card information.
You may cancel your subscription at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cancellation will take effect for the next billing cycle following the date of cancellation. Billing Cycles for Toenail Fungus treatment subscriptions are at 6-month intervals and will be billed to the credit card on file monthly.
Subscription fees are non-refundable due to the nature of the products and services being provided. Please note that orders cannot be canceled once shipped by the pharmacy because the medication cannot be returned or refunded. Exception for Money Back Guarantee, which is conditional to patient continuing therapy for at least 6 months in length and must include oral antifungal along with topical treatment. Treatment success or failure will be reviewed and determined by medical professional.
Changes to Subscription Plans
You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information when registering to use the Digital Services and establishing your account (“Registration Information”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Distinct Dermatology has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Distinct Dermatology may suspend or terminate your account. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords and any usage and activities that occur in connection with your account. You agree not to allow others to access your account or utilize your password. Doing so will compromise the security of your account.
You agree to immediately notify Distinct Dermatology of any unauthorized use of your password or account, and to ensure that you properly exit from your account at the end of each session. Distinct Dermatology shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with any of these terms and conditions.
The following actions are expressly prohibited in relation to your username and password used to obtain the Digital Service:
- Sharing, disclosing, permitting access to, or otherwise facilitating the use by any person of your username and password;
- Using the username and password to cache the Digital Service in such a manner as to be accessible by persons who have not properly registered with Distinct Dermatology; or
- Using the username and password to permit multiple persons access to the Digital Service through a local or wide area network.
If you have forgotten your username or password, Distinct Dermatology will use an email address previously provided by you to send your username or temporary password. You understand that any other individuals using the same email address will be able to gain access to your Digital Service account information, but only if they provide the correct answers to your security questions.
Your use of the Digital Service and any content accessed through the Digital Service must comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances, including any laws regarding the export of data or software. You must be at least 18 years old to register and use the Digital Service, or you must be the legal guardian for someone under age 18 whose data is accessed through the Digital Service. You may not interfere with or disrupt the proper operation of the Digital Service.
If you use the Digital Service to enter and maintain your personal information, you understand that you are responsible for safeguarding and securing your mobile device and the associated credentials (such as user identifiers and passwords). If you leave your mobile device unattended, or if it is lost or stolen, you understand that your personal information may be accessible to others.
DISCLAIMER OF MEDICAL SERVICES
Distinct Dermatology operates as a treatment service coordinator only. Distinct Dermatology does not provide medical advice or care, nor does it dispense pharmaceutical products. Any telemedicine consults obtained through our Digital Services are provided by licensed, independent medical practitioners that provide healthcare services via telemedicine through a network of United States based health care providers (each, a “Provider”). Any prescriptions issued by your Provider are filled and shipped to you by a licensed pharmacy. Your Provider and/or pharmacy is directly responsible for providing you with a Notice of Privacy Practices that describes its collection and use of your health information, not Distinct Dermatology.
As the treatment service coordinator, Distinct Dermatology connects customers to medical providers through a telehealth consult/visit. Medical providers offering their services through a telehealth encounter on the Distinct Dermatology platform are compensated for a fixed fee as part of the overall service fee charged to the customer.
NO MEDICAL ADVICE
The Providers are independent of Distinct Dermatology and are merely using the Digital Services as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from Distinct Dermatology. Your interactions with a Provider via the Digital Services are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither Distinct Dermatology, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Digital Services or provide a link to the services, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Digital Services, nor any information obtained on the Digital Services. Distinct Dermatology does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skills of any Providers who deliver services via the Digital Services. You will be provided with available Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Digital Services. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider.
The content of the Digital Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind. You should always seek the advice of your qualified healthcare professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. Distinct Dermatology does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be included on the Digital Services. Reliance on any information appearing on the Digital Services, whether provided by Distinct Dermatology, its content providers, its clients, visitors to the Digital Services or others, is solely at your own risk.
Our website offers the opportunity to receive online medical consults for persons who may be experiencing certain medical conditions. A Provider, not affiliated with Distinct Dermatology, will conduct any medical consult scheduled through our Website. The Provider will conduct a medical evaluation to determine whether a prescription is appropriate to treat the symptoms you are experiencing. All prescribing is based solely on the independent medical decision making of your Provider. There is no guarantee you will receive a prescription. All Providers work for independent physician-owned medical practices. The Providers do not have a financial relationship with Distinct Dermatology and are compensated based solely on their personally performed services. The Provider’s compensation is the same whether or not a prescription is issued, and regardless of what pharmacy you select to dispense the prescription.
NOT FOR EMERGENCIES
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
Distinct Dermatology’s Digital Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay seeking medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Digital Services. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or medication.
RISKS OF TELEHEALTH SERVICES
Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who is not in the same physical location. While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. In order to use the telehealth services, you will be required to review and agree to an informed consent regarding the use of telehealth (the “Patient Consent”) that will be provided to you by the Providers through the Digital Services. You agree that Distinct Dermatology is a third-party beneficiary of the Patient Consent and has the right to enforce it.
You will not be able to obtain a prescription product unless you have completed a consultation with one of the Providers through the Digital Services, the Provider has determined the prescription product is appropriate for you, and the Provider has written a prescription.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to read fully and carefully all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. Distinct Dermatology has negotiated discounts for its customers with its pharmacy partners and our service fee proposal includes the cost of a telehealth Provider consultation as well as the cost of medication when dispensed from our pharmacy partner. However, Distinct Dermatology fully honors patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct your Provider to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice, provided that you are willing to pay the additional cost charged by such pharmacy.

We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card charged. If your credit or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit or debit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Your account may also be restricted or terminated for any reason, at our sole discretion. Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled by us after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge.
