Patient Information and Consent Form
I have been truthful, concise and disclosed correct details in regards to my present and past state of health. If any of these details do change in the future, it is my responsibility to update the treating practitioner at the time.
This consent form will cover the entire course of treatment for my present condition, and for any other future condition(s) for which I seek treatment. I understand that I can withdraw my consent at any time.
Duty of Disclosure
In the best interest of the client’s health, it is the client’s responsibility & obligation to notify (all of) their health practitioner/s of any changes to their situation (e.g., medications, personal details, symptomatology, examinatory testing, etc.).
It is the client’s responsibility & obligation to keep their medical doctor/s and/or specialist/s informed of any consultation/s with your Naturopath, including any supplementation or other recommendations made during consultations and / or treatment, as this may change the nature of any past, current or future medical (or other health-related) recommendations that may be made to them. Furthermore, it is the client’s responsibility & obligation to keep your Naturopath informed of any consultation/s with medical doctor/s and/or specialist.
At times it may be necessary for your Naturopath to contact the client’s medical doctor/s, specialist/s, and/or other health professional/s as required, or if requested by the client. However, contact with medical doctor/s and/or specialist/s will not necessarily be automatic.
The services offered by your Naturopath are provided on a serviced based fee, Fees are currently set at $149.00 for Initial Consultations and $120 for Follow Up Appointments. This fee is payable at the time of consultation either by cash, credit, or EFTPOS. Rebates may be available through your private heath fund - reception will provide you with your receipt.
If you cannot attend your appointment, please notify your naturopath as soon as possible. Appointments cancelled without at least 24 hours notice are charged at the full fee.
I acknowledge that I am aware of, and understand the potential risks of Naturopathic treatment. I am also aware and understand that results cannot be guaranteed. Through the consult and treatment I also have the opportunity to ask questions about the nature, extent and purpose of the proposed care, and that I have been given sufficient time to make a decision giving the consent for the care to proceed.
