Do I have to do anything before my first appointment?

Prior to your initial consultation you may be emailed an online health questionnaire to complete (privacy protected, you need login details which are sent to you also), to provide us with your current and previous health history.
This gives us time to review your health details and ensures time is not wasted during your initial appointment in collecting this information.
Obtain copies of previous blood tests (no older than 6 months) to bring in with you.
Ensure you have had 200ml of water prior to your consult as a urine sample is collected at our consultation.
No coffee prior to your visit as this may give false readings of some tests.

This will depend on your health complaint but generally the following topics will be discussed
• the reason for your visit

Comprehensive clinical testing will be performed to give us a better understanding of your condition.
Together this information will help us formulate a personalised treatment plan to get you back on the track to good health.

How often will I need to have a consultation?
