Medical FAQs

Q.

Do you practice general medicine as well as integrative medicine?

A.

Yes we do! We can help you with all aspects of your health and look after the whole family

Our special interest lies in women's and children's health, digestive issues and chronic health problems. We find that complex issues often benefit from an integrative approach.

We do not do complex skin procedures ourselves but can refer you to our trusted network of skin specialists.

Q.

What is integrative and functional medicine?

A.

Integrative and functional medicine takes into account the physical, psychological, social and spiritual wellbeing of the person with the aim of using the most appropriate, safe and evidence-based treatments available. It also acknowledges the importance of a trusting therapeutic relationship.

We take a comprehensive history, perform specialised testing and tailor a personalised plan that combines nutrition, fitness and lifestyle as well as clinically proved natural products and medication (if necessary) to address the root cause of illness, rather than focusing only on the symptoms.

We believe that chronic health problems require this comprehensive approach. We believe that a great relationship with your doctor is essential. To make this happen, we offer longer appointments so that you never feel rushed.

Q.

Can I claim my appointment on Medicare?

A.

Yes! We have direct online claiming from Medicare with the rebate being paid into your account within 24hrs.

Q.

Do you bulk bill?

A.

We bulk bill children 5yrs old and younger. Other than that, we do not routinely bulk bill patients. We can assist you by providing a direct claim from Medicare with the rebate being paid into your account within 24hrs. To make this seamless, it is important that you keep your Medicare card valid and details up to date.

It is at our discretion as to whether we agree to bulk bill you under special circumstances. We may consider this if you are on a pension or have a genuine hardship.
