Your first appointment is the most critical time with your practitioner. This is were information is collected and synthesized to develop a working diagnosis and treatment plan. Once you have made your appointment our receptionist will send you a confirmation email with some simple instructions preparing for your first visit. The power of Naturopathy is tailoring treatment to the unique individual and the Naturopath will look at diet, work factors, sleep habits, leisure activities, test results, supplements and medications as well as the symptoms you are experiencing.
Please Arrive on Time or Early
Extra time is allocated for a first Naturopathic appointment so it is important to arrive on time, and preferably a little earlier so that nothing interferes with this appointment.
On arrival our receptionist will give you a health history form to complete. This can take up to 15 minutes (or a little longer in complex cases). We pride ourselves for running on time so that we do not waste your valuable time. Please assist us with this by arriving punctually for your appointment.
What To Bring
Our practitioners integrate the best that modern research has to offer with the wisdom that comes from the natural medicine tradition. To achieve the best results please bring with you the results of any blood tests, medical reports or other medical tests you have had with your doctor or elsewhere, and a list of your current medications and supplements.
Also bring your Health Fund card so we can process your claim through HiCaps.
What form of payment is accepted.
We will process your health fund rebate on the spot wherever possibly through the HiCaps terminal so please bring your health funds card with you. We accept payment by Eftpos, Visa, Mastercard and cash.
Do supplements cost extra
The visit fee covers the consultation and treatment only. Additional costs are incurred for any tests that may be conducted (such as a zinc taste test) or supplements prescribed. Your practitioner will let you know if any additional testing is required and tell you the cost of this before they conduct the test.
