What to expect from a consultation with me

Your first appointment is a long consultation that allows us plenty of time to discuss your health concern in detail and start to work towards identifying the underlying cause.

I will ask you questions about your current health concern, as well as discussing your health history, your diet and lifestyle background, family history, and relevant physical examinations.

Prior to your initial appointment, I will send you a case history form that should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. This allows me to start considering your health and ensures we make the best use of time in our initial session.

Included in the cost of your initial consultation is:

  • 60 – 90 minute consultation (length depends on presenting health concern)
  • Pre-appointment preparation – review of case history
  • Review of relevant test results
  • Post-appointment reflection and additional research
  • Time to communicate with other professionals in your care team – e.g. your GP or specialist

Our immediate follow up appointment may be scheduled for between 2-8 weeks after our initial appointment, depending on the direction of treatment and whether any additional tests were required after our first session. This session is either 45 or 60 minutes, depending on the complexity of your health, to allow enough time to thoroughly discuss your treatment plan.

In the follow up appointment, we will:

  • Pre-appointment preparation and review of your case
  • Review of results from any ordered tests
  • Comprehensive discussion
  • Evaluate the 

After the initial assessment process (initial appointment and first follow-up appointment), we will have a number of ongoing return sessions to monitor your health and provide ongoing support throughout the treatment plan.

These return appointments are typically 30 or 45 minutes, and will initially be more frequent, for example once every 2 weeks, and as your health progresses over time the sessions may become less frequent, for example once a month or once every 2-3 months. The duration and frequency of these ongoing appointments is something we discuss and decide upon together throughout the treatment plan.

The cost of your return appointments include:

  • Pre-appointment preparation and review of your case
  • Reflection of current treatment directions
  • During consultation review of your health and discussion about successes and challenges of the treatment plan
  • Discussion about need for additional or review testing, or modifications of the treatment plan
  • Post-appointment case work, including revision of treatment strategy and additional research
  • Communication with other professionals – review letters to GPs, etc.
