Our mission is always to empower individuals and communities to gain and maintain complete physical, mental and social well-being by taking ownership and pride in their health.

We believe the use of Medical Nutritional Therapy through food and diet is vital to preventing and treating disease while simultaneously creating a future for better health. Good nutrition plays a vital role in our wellbeing, it can reduce our health risks and promote recovery from a variety of conditions.

However, food is also a beautiful part of our everyday lives and is intertwined with our social connections, culture, and traditions.

Our Dietitians understand and value this multi-faceted connection we have with food because food plays an equally important role in their lives!

They focus on understanding you as an individual and will work with you to create individualised nutrition plans that are realistic, sustainable and delicious!

Modern Medicine



MHCPs, TAC, WorkCover, NDIS, TAC and HICAPS for private health claiming is available onsite. With the exception of plan-managed NDIS participants, accounts must be paid in full on the day of the appointment and our friendly reception team will prepare the necessary information for you to claim your entitlements.

GP Health Care Plans (CDMs)

Medicare will rebate your consultation up to an amount which increases every year. For an example for the 2022-2023 financial year the rebate from Medicare was $56. We will need paperwork of your CDM prior to your appointment for the rebate to be claimed which we can do for you onsite on the day of your appointment. Your GP will usually send this directly to us but sometimes you will need to bring this to us if they give the paperwork to you.

While we provide the claiming facilities for this as an added service to our clients, eligibility for any rebates though insurance or Medicare is your responsibility to manage to ensure you can access your entitlements.


Self-managed and plan-managed participants.


There is no age limit to treating minors. If a parent is booking in a child, there is the option to have an initial appointment without the child so the parent can discuss any issues freely.

Cancellation Policy

To avoid the consult fee, notify us at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to cancel or reschedule so we can arrange to care for another client during that time. If the required notice is not given and you can’t make your appointment but we are successfully able to fill that place, no fee will be charged.


Initial 1 hour: $120
Return 30 minutes: $95
Return 45 minutes: $120

CDMs (Formerly EPCs) Out of Pocket Fee

Initial 1 hour: $27.65
Return: $17.65
