Kerith Duncanson has recently set aside a few hours each week when she will exclusively see clients in an online consultation. This means that it does not matter where you live, as the consultation will be conducted completely online using the Coviu platform.

You do not need a doctor’s referral to see us, however, there are a number of federally funded programs that may enable you to see one of our Dietitians at no cost to you (for a limited number of consultations).  We therefore suggest that you discuss this with your GP prior to making an appointment to see us.

If you do not have a referral from your doctor then you will need to complete a credit/debit card payment at the time of the consultation, so please have your card details ready when you complete the booking. Your card will only be charged when you attend the appointment.

You can make a booking online to see Kerith by using the button above.

A standard initial consultation usually takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes, whilst a standard follow-up consultation is typically 30 to 45 minutes.  Of course, the duration of the consultation will depend on your specific needs, requirements and circumstances.

The fees will depend on how you have been referred to us.

Where no appropriate funding body covers a consultation, then fees will apply as follows:

  • $150 for an initial consultation,
  • $120 for an extended follow-up consultation, and
  • $90 for a standard follow-up consultation.

Most private health funds will subsidise consultations with an Accredited Practising Dietitian. Check your health fund for your eligibility.

Many of our clients are referred to us through the Priority Allied Health Services (PAHS) program, or through relevant Medicare (Team Care Arrangements) and Department of Veteran Affairs (Gold Card) initiatives. Clients referred through these programs will typically incur no out-of-pocket expenses as they are subsidised by the respective funding organisation. However, eligibility conditions apply, so you will need to check with your doctor in the first instance.
