The doctors at Lotus Holistic Medicine spend almost all their time at the clinic in consultation with clients face-to-face or via Skype or telephone.
These questions are best handled in the context of a consultation. We recommend first consulting these FAQs, then any consultation summaries or information sheets provided by your doctor, then making a face-to-face, phone or Skype consultation if the answer cannot be found.
Your emails are received and actioned by our wonderful Reception team; who are not clinical staff and cannot provide medical recommendations.
Note: Our next new patient appointment is not until at least March 2022, or later, across all of our Doctors. We thank you for your patience and understanding that this is the timeline you can expect upon enquiry.
To book your follow up appointments, the easiest way is to either book at the reception desk after your appointment, or via our online booking system. You can utilise this by visiting our HotDoc page or clicking the “Book Appointment” button above. You can also find us on the HotDoc Smartphone app.
Typically, monthly appointments are recommended for the first 3 months, with follow up appointments ranging from monthly to yearly thereafter depending on your medical needs.
Your initial consultation must be face to face with our Doctors.
You also must physically attend a minimum of 1 appointment per year in-clinic. This is both for us to ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, as well as to ensure you are eligible for maximum Medicare rebates.
For a 30 minute consult, this is $180-$240 with a $75 rebate. Your out of pocket is between $105 – $165.
These fees are in line with the standard charges for General Practitioners, however a standard GP will generally only offer consultations of between 5 – 20 minutes.
As we offer longer consultations, this is why the gap is larger.
Please note the following:
1. Cancelling within 24 Hours / No Show Fee: will be 50% of the Doctor’s Consult Fee
2. New Patient Cancellation / No Show Fee: will be the $150 deposit taken at the time of booking
3. No new appointments can be made without first paying your outstanding balance.
If you have a preferred pharmacy, please advise your doctor.
