Check your policy to see if you are covered to see a NZ Registered Dietitian.
Typically you will need to pay for your consultation and will be provided with a full receipt, which you can then claim back part or all of the cost (depending on your level of cover) with your insurance company.
What to expect
Your first consultation with our dietitians is usually for one hour. We can see you in-person in our clinic, online or speak by phone. In that time, we discuss your health concerns/goals, what you want from the consultation and complete a full assessment of your diet, medical history and lifestyle.
Your dietitian will then use their clinical expertise to help tailor a realistic plan that is right for you. Your plan will be printed or emailed to you along with any supporting resources.
We then meet again to review your progress and this is usually for 30 minutes. The number of appointments you will need varies for each individual and will be discussed at your first consultation in more detail. As a guide many people with IBS meet with us for 3-4 times but there is no set number of consultations. It is about what you want from us.
Our dietitians will only recommend tests such as blood, stool or breath if they are indicated and valid.
What to bring with you
When you book with us, you will be emailed an online form to complete. This allows your dietitian to prepare for your appointment, so that you can get the most out of it.
If you like, do bring a family member or friend. As we say, “two sets of ears are often better than one”, and especially if the other person does most of the cooking at home.
If you have recent blood results, a letter from your doctor, medication lists/any supplements and/or food/symptom diary, you can upload them to the online form you complete prior to your appointment or bring along with you.
We realise that plans can change and you may need to reschedule your appointment. To be fair to other clients and our dietitians we appreciate if you can provide at least 48 hours notice if you need to reschedule your appointment.
Please be aware that cancellation within 24 hours (72 hours if including the weekend) of your appointment will incur a full consultation fee – as it is difficult to fill your appointment within this time. If the consultation is pre-paid, this will be regarded as a used appointment.
We thank you for your understanding.
