The therapeutic agreement is an agreement between doctors and patients which gives doctors the power to give forensic examination services. In the legal aspect of the therapeutical agreement, there appears the rights and responsibilities of each party. This means that both patients and practitioners have their own rights and responsibilities. The method used in this research is the doctrinal method with deductive and inductive approaches.
