Consultations

Your first consultation includes a full medical assessment, and takes just over an hour.

You will be asked to fill in a questionnaire, giving your symptoms, past illnesses, allergies and medications. Dr Wendy Rose Isbell then talks to you about your illnesses and symptoms. She will want to know about your medication, and about any allergies. A full medical examination is done, and blood tests, prescriptions or referrals are arranged if necessary. She may give you a homeopathic remedy or recommend Flower Essences or Homeobotanicals for you to take at home.

You are asked to come for follow up appointments after your initial consultation so Dr Wendy Rose Isbell can monitor your progress, and arrange further treatment if necessary. This is especially important if you are undergoing homeopathic treatment as it is usually best to have more than one dose at the start of your homeopathic treatment. The average number of doses for a sustained homeopathic treatment is 3 to 6, although you may get better faster or more slowly.

Fees

There is a base fee for all consultations, with a surcharge for new patients to allow for the first medical assessment to be performed, and a separate fee for homeopathic remedies, and for Flower Essences and Homeobotanicals. Children under 18, Community Services Card holders, and patients that have Dr Wendy Rose Isbell as their GP all attract a subsidy from the government so their fees are reduced.

Fees may be claimed back on health insurance, usually at specialist rates. However, charges for the homeopathic remedy, Flower Essences and Homeobotanicals will not be reimbursed.

If you have a Community Services Card and an ongoing illness you may be eligible for a Disability Allowance.

If you have had 6 or more medical visits in the last 12 months, or are on a hospital waiting list, you may be eligible for a Care Plus subsidy payment toward your fees. Ask Dr Wendy Rose Isbell if you think you would be eligible.

Employment Opportunities

From time to time we have employment opportunities for casual and part time workers, on a flexible basis. Staff members need to be polite and friendly, yet professional. They must have a positive attitude, and complete tasks promptly and accurately.

They need to be sensitive to the needs of others, and have a commitment to customer service, and to the smooth running of the practice.

There are vacancies for reception and administration staff and nurses, but not at this stage for managers, therapists or trainees.

If you think you would fit in with this practice, and know you can be kind, willing and professional, then we would like to hear from you.
