A word on weight loss…

A Fresh Nutrition Dietitian will base their advice to you using a  “Non Dieting” approach. They focus on:

  • Helping you achieve balance in your meals and make quality food choices within your lifestyle, family, budget, culture and food preferences.
  • Helping you to eat with awareness (getting back in touch with your body’s signals of hunger and fullness, limiting distractions, eating slowly and enjoying satisfying meal times).
  • Helping you to take the steps to nurture yourself to improve your overall life quality.

Fresh Nutrition Dietitians Bulk Bill (no gap) Medicare EPC Plans (Speak to your GP about these).

Alternately, Private Health Fund rebates apply if you are not eligible for a Medicare EPC Plan (check with your fund).

Coronavirus Health Alert

As the threat level of COVID-19 is currently low in South Australia, we’re now offering face-to-face appointments. We continue to monitor the situation in other States closely.
We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.

If you have symptoms of fever, flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. If you require help to arrange this, please book a telephone consult with a GP first, and an appropriate safe review can be arranged.

For patients with other conditions who would prefer a telephone or video consult, these appointments continue to be available.

Please be aware that a private or gap fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults from 1st October 2020.

Medicare GP telehealth items are restricted to circumstances where a patient has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e. the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.

Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe, and we remain prepared to transition back to telephone triage of all consults should COVID-19 threat levels increase.
