Users will be able to schedule appointments with our doctors through our platform. The user must select the doctor or health professional according to their specialty.

Select the date of the appointment according to the available dates in the calendar. Once the appointment date is selected, the user must complete the payment process. Please note that the charge will only be made once the doctor or health professional approves and accepts the appointment. At the time the doctor or health care professional accepts the appointment the charge will be made from your credit or debit card according to the payment information provided during the appointment scheduling process.

By scheduling an appointment through the platform, the user offers to purchase the service for the price advertised and indicated on the platform at the time of scheduling the appointment. Once the doctor or healthcare professional accepts and approves the appointment, ARDIG will send an email with the corresponding appointment information including instructions to virtually access the appointment on the day and time scheduled during the scheduling process.

ARDIG may cancel any appointment and may change or discontinue appointment availability at any time at its sole discretion. If an appointment is cancelled, any payment made will be refunded in full. This does not affect your statutory rights.



Payment for services must be made during the appointment scheduling process. Services can be paid through “Stripe” (payment processor available on the website). Payment for the corresponding appointment or service will be charged to your credit or debit card once the doctor or healthcare professional accepts and approves the appointment. Once the transaction is processed, we will send you an electronic receipt of the transaction to the email address you provide during the appointment scheduling process. Users will be able to view transactions made through our services and will be able to review pending and past appointments in the payment section of the website.

If you find any inconsistencies in your billing, please contact us via our contact details or you can make a complaint via the customer service of the relevant payment platform.

If your card is declined, you will receive an error message. No payment will be charged to your card and no order will be processed. There may be a pending transaction on your account until your card issuing bank withdraws the authorization. This usually takes 2 to 5 working days. Your card may be declined for a number of reasons, such as insufficient funds, AVS (Address Verification System) mismatch or you have entered an incorrect security code.

If your payment is declined, you will need to provide an alternative payment method or provide another card on which the payment can be charged and processed.

Your payment information will be processed and stored securely and for the sole purpose of processing the purchase of services. ARDIG reserves the right to contract any payment platform available on the market, which treats your data for the sole purpose of processing the purchase of services.
