About our Dietitian Services
Dietitians educate patients about the importance and value of nutrition in food and provide individualised advice, clear direction and support to individuals on their journey to achieving their personal goals.
Health conditions that may benefit from consultations with a dietitian include weight management, diabetes mellitus, diverticular disease, eating disorder management, cardiovascular disease, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, mental health, osteoporosis, arthritis, nutrition support for the underweight/malnourished, renal disease, coeliac disease, nutrition support for the elderly, liver disease and nutrition during oncology.
What will happen at my initial consultation?
At the initial consultation our dietitian will get to know you in order to provide you with the most appropriate individualised advice. In order to do this, background information will be collected about your medical history, lifestyle habits and eating patterns with a strong focus on what will work for you, your lifestyle and your health and wellbeing goals. As well as this, recent blood tests that you may have had will be analysed and measurements will be taken such as height, weight and BMI. The initial consultation will take approximately 45 minutes.
How much will my appointment cost?
Initial consultation: $90
Review consultation: $70
