HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY INITIAL CONSULTATION?
Please bring your baby with you and prepare to feed within the consultation. I will require any hospital paperwork you have from the birth. Please also bring baby's green book so I can see how baby's weight has been tracking.
DO YOU OFFER REMOTE CONSULTATIONS?
Yes I do offer telehealth consultations, over the phone, however video consultations are tricky at the moment due to overloaded internet traffic. You may want to consider emailing me some photos prior to your appointment in lieu of a physical examination.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS?
That depends on which clinic I am working from, as they have different fee structures. Both clinics have transparent fees published on their websites. I book an hour for an initial consultation, which is billed as a long consult (time over 20 mins) for baby and a long consult for Mum.
WHY IS THERE A CHARGE FOR BOTH MOTHER AND BABY?
Because my consultation is very thorough, and I ask questions about both other and baby, and examine you both, I must by law write notes on both of you. This requires me to bill both of you, which actually helps you obtain a better Medicare rebate than if I charged only one of you.
