Do you work with people outside of the Sydney area?
Yes I work with people outside the Sydney area both nationally and internationally, non-local consultations are done via telephone and skype.
Are your services or Lab Tests covered by Medicare?
No, Functional medicine is not conventional medicine.
Medicare only pays for standard conventional medical tests. The tests I order are Functional Medicine Tests and are completely different to the standard one size fits all conventional tests that have not uncovered your health problems.
However if you have private health insurance please check with your insurance provider to determine if your plan includes out-of-network benefits. If so, you can submit a statement from your consultation and the insurance company may reimburse you directly.
My Personal Training/Injury Rehabilitation services can be claimed depending on your insurance provider. I advise contacting them to confirm.
How long will my treatment take?
This can depend on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, how long you’ve had it, how much time, energy and attention you’re willing to devote to treatment, and how well you respond to treatment.
However, generally, treatment programs for chronic conditions can last between three and six months, with most clients seeing improvement within the first month. Clients may elect to continue with a maintenance program after their initial treatment plan is finished.
How much will my treatment cost?
This also depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of supplements, herbs and other therapies needed during treatment, and the number of consultations you receive. Please see my Functional Medicine services page for a complete description of my services and rates.
How long does it take for my test results to come back?
Between 2-3 weeks as some tests need to be sent to laboratories in America.
How can I learn more about whether you’re the right practitioner for me?
The best way to determine whether we’d be a good fit is to book in for a free consultation (via phone/skype). This will give you a sense of who I am, how I work, my approach and what conditions I treat. From which I then highly advise you to use your own intuition to decide.
