What to expect
Upon your arrival we will ask you to complete our comprehensive intake form before the consultation commences. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out this paperwork so we can get a detailed view of your current health and any health concerns you may have.
We start by gaining a thorough understanding of your current condition so we can develop an appropriate care plan for you. Then, we’ll get straight to work on helping to relieve your symptoms and improving your overall health.
What to bring
We suggest that you bring along any recent blood tests or other relevant health reports that you have received recently, however this is not essential.
Your diet is an important part of your health, so please write a list of everything you ate and drank over the past 3 days. That way we can see how your diet is contributing to your symptoms.
We need to consider your current medications, so you can write down your prescription medicines and over the counter medicines and your dosage, or if its easier you could take a photo or bring them in with you.
If you have Private Health Insurance “extras” that covers Naturopathy or Nutrition, bring your card along with you. If covered, most health fund claims can be processed through our HICAPS terminal so that you’ll only need to pay the “gap” on the day.
Where we are
Our clinic is located at 1127 Frankston-Flinders Road, Somerville. On-site parking is available at the rear of the clinic as well as limited on-street parking on Frankston-Flinders Road (please check signage for restrictions).
Should you need to change or cancel an appointment time we request a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. This enables us to offer available times to those needing a last minute appointment. A cancellation fee is charged if adequate notice is not given.
If this is your first time seeing a Naturopath or Nutritionist, don’t worry, we are here to make sure you understand the process every step of the way. From the first welcome you receive as you enter our clinic through to the outstanding care our expert Naturopath will provide you with, you can rest assured that you are in great hands.
We encourage you to bring a family member or friend along to your appointment if you’d like to – this may allow you to feel more comfortable and also help them to understand your condition as well.
If you have any questions prior to your appointment, please call our friendly reception staff on 5977 7488.
Thank you for choosing Somerville Chiropractic Family Wellness Centre. We look forward to helping you achieve better health naturally.
