Consultation and Fees

ChildD dietitians allow 60 – 75 minutes for an initial consultation and 30 – 45 minutes for review appointments. This allows time for a thorough nutritional assessment, discussion, and negotiation of an individualised plan.

What to bring to your appointment?
A doctor’s referral is not essential, but any medical history or tests can assist with nutritional assessment.
If you would like to claim from Medicare, you will need a special referral or Chronic Disease Management Plan or Team Care Arrangements from your GP. 

Our fees
The fee for an initial consultation is $180 (approx. 60 – 75 mins) and $100 for a review appointment (approx. 30 - 45 mins).
