Optimal Life Natural Medicine
Why is the initial appointment so long?
Our practitioners like to take an extended period of time with you to fully understand your health history and current concerns so they can best formulate a treatment plan that will encompass all areas of your health that may be influencing your current concerns. Your Chiropractic initial consultation will also involve some physical and neurological examinations that allows Dr Scott to understand where you are upon the health continuum and select the best management strategies to help you live your most optimal life.
Can I claim my appointments on private health insurance?
Absolutely! We have a HICAPS machine on site for your convenience and can swipe your card at the time of payment. Unfortunately, we are unable to determine how much your health fund might cover as it depends on which health fund you’re with and what level of cover you’ve taken out. We recommend contacting your health fund directly prior to your appointment if you would like an estimate of your rebate.
How many appointments will I need?
This is often difficult to predict as it depends on your current health concern and how long you have been experiencing symptoms. Following your initial consultation, we book a 30 minute follow up appointment within a week and following this usually your appointments will be 10-20 minutes in length. You may require 5-10 appointments before you start a maintenance treatment plan however this does vary depending on your presenting concerns.
I really need assistance with my health and Optimal Life would be my preferred healthcare provider but financially I don’t think I can afford the regular follow up treatments that might be required. Can you provide assistance in this area?
We are understanding that sometimes financial circumstances impact on how often you are able to receive treatments. Please contact the clinic on 3371 0222 to discuss your circumstances with our friendly team and we will be most happy to work with you so you can achieve optimal health!
