A discussion about your health problems will take place, with a discussion about the various options available to you. The emphasis will be on a natural and holistic approach to your problems. I will discuss these in detail. A physical examination will not occur unless it is appropriate to do so. I do not replace your own GP/therapist, who will continue to look after your day-to-day needs.
You will probably need to have some pathology (blood) tests done after the consultation.
A follow-up consultation will take place, usually a week later, to discuss the results and plan a management program, normally using natural hormones as necessary.
The cost of the follow-up consultations is $90, of which nearly half will be rebated by medicare. I do not Bulk Bill.
You may get a prescription for the Bioidentical hormones, obtainable from a compounding chemist.
The cost of these varies from $1 – $2 per day, depending on the ingredients. Rarely may cost more.
There are normally 2 repeats, which equates to a 6 month supply. The selected pharmacy keeps the repeat for you.
You will normally have a six monthly check-up consultation, to make sure your levels are optimal, as they do change over time. Use the path form I give you to have your hormone levels checked before seeing me.
Repeats scripts cannot be obtained without a consultation, so plan this well in advance, as there is often a 2-3 week delay in getting an appointment. If there is an emergency script needed, which may happen in certain circumstances, then a $25 fee is payable to cover various costs.
If you have any major issues with your treatment/medication/symptoms then check FAQ on this website, as you may find the answer there. If the answer is not there, then email me at: email@example.com. Sometimes there may be a few days delay in receiving a reply, as I sometimes get over 100 emails in a day, and it can take time to go through them all.
