Every client begins their health journey at the Wellness Centre with an initial appointment.
This includes a thorough health assessment and review of your pathology results from a nutritional medicine context to individualise treatment from a practical and evidence-based position.
Prior to attending for your initial appointment, it is advantageous to provide any previous pathology results for review if available.
You may be recommended to have further pathology investigations depending on your case and we are experienced with liaising with other health professionals to achieve the best health outcome for you.
What to Expect
Prior to your initial consultation at The Wellness Centre, you will be sent a health questionnaire to complete and return for your practitioner to review before the consultation. You are also encouraged to supply copies of any previous pathology testing for review.
We ask you to allow an hour to an hour and a half for your first consultation and to wear or bring with you shorts and a t-shirt for the body composition assessment which will require access to your thigh and torso for body fat measurement.
During the consultation, we will discuss your current and past health history, discuss your dietary intake, activity level, sleep and complete a physical examination, bone density ultrasound, and body composition ultrasound. Depending on your individual needs, you may be recommended to complete a home sleep test.
You may also be recommended further testing which you can discuss with your medical doctor or we can arrange private testing through Laverty Pathology.
