In brief: Informed Consent

Hello! this is a form that explains what procedure you are having, why it is being done, the risks, benefits, and allows you to ask the doctor any questions you may have prior to saying you will allow them to perform anything on you.
If you don't agree with what is in the informed consent, you don't sign and the doctor cannot perform the procedure..
