We offer 3 appointment types to suit your needs:
a) Dual Doctor-Dietitian appointments (most popular and recommended appointment type):
If you are a new patient to our clinic, it is required that you book a dual doctor-dietitian appointment for the initial consultation. We take 1-hour (30 minutes with each practitioner) to get to know you and provide a comprehensive clinical evaluation to establish medical and dietary issues that may also require medication and blood tests. Subsequent appointments may be with both or single practitioners depending on your treatment plan.
b) Dietitian only appointments:
These are either a 1 hour initial or 30 minute subsequent appointment with an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD). This appointment type is suited if you are wanting to adopt dietary change for general health, weight loss, chronic disease management or if you have received a referral from your GP for dietary intervention.
c) Doctor only appointments:
This is a 30 minute appointment with our doctor. This appointment type is best suited if you are on track with you diet but require blood tests, medical management or simply would like to consult with the doctor experienced in implemented low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets.
