Appointment Structure & Fees
How it works
PATIENTS - APPOINTMENT OVERVIEW & FEES
All new patients follow the below appointment structure. Both before and after your appointments, we spend time researching your health, reviewing your goals and finding the best options for you. This also involves communicating with your other health care providers, presenting your case to our Studio You practitioner board or writing reports. We do this because we practice the highest level of best practice procedures possible and take your health seriously. Partnering with us means we leave no stone unturned as we leverage cutting edge science and implement them into highly effective customised treatment plans.
VISIT 1: Case Review Consultation (60 mins)
Your first visit involves a full case history, referrals to appropriate practitioners & recommendations for any pathology. You will receive a clear, written treatment plan that addresses your immediate concerns. Emma Sutherland, Senior Naturopath: $185, Annamaria Tizzone + Sonya Reynolds: $155
VISIT 2: Testing appointment (45 mins)
Approximately 1 week later, point of care testing occurs with weight, body measurements, zinc test, pH test, tongue analysis, full dietary analysis and specific questionnaires.
