This research is concerned with briefly studying the general health legislative situation in in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with a focus on the doctor's commitment to enlighten the patient. It relies on the provisions of the health professions practice system with a review of the legislative and jurisprudential situation prevailing in the comparative systems. It starts with a review of the legal basis for the commitment to enlightenment, followed by the legal nature of the commitment to enlightenment and the limits and stages of that right. Then, we ended up by pointing out the shortcomings that were not covered by the current legislative texts, so that we finally recommend solutions and treatment for those uncovered issues.
