Currently our practice runs as an appointment only clinic. We run our own reception. If you need to pick up any medicines or visit to talk, make sure you call before you come and we can tell you what the best times are.
If you get our answering machine, please leave a message and a practitioner will return your call ASAP.
Do I need to make an appointment? Yes
When should I arrive? 15 min prior to your consultation is optimal. This gives you a chance to relax with a cup of tea and fill out any forms required by some practitioners.
What if I arrive late for my appointment?
Arriving late means that your time is limited. Your consultation will end on time so the following client is not delayed.
What if I need to cancel an appointment?
If you are unable to make your appointment we need 24 hours notice otherwise a cancellation fee may apply.
What about payments for treatments / consultations?
We accept cash and direct deposit from your phone. Please check with your practitioner for debit and credit card facilities. Clients can use an ATM 50 Meters from the premises.
Health fund rebates?
As of April 2019 the Australian government removed many natural therapies from getting private insurance rebates, including Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine. The current status is that people will not receive rebates from consultations.
This is currently under review.
