Your continued use of the Platform Services after the effective date of the amended terms will constitute your acceptance of the amended Terms.

Not a Healthcare Provider; No Medical Advice
Please note that OSB, itself, does not provide any healthcare services. Applicable healthcare services are furnished by third-party medical providers practicing within independently owned and operated professional practices. The inclusion of any healthcare provider on the Platform Services shall not be considered as an endorsement of such healthcare provider by OSB and shall not mean that OSB has conducted any due diligence or other investigation regarding the healthcare provider.
