Cancelation Policy

Our goal is to provide quality health care and education in a timely manner. As such, we have had to implement an appointment cancellation policy.  This policy enables us to better utilise available appointments for our patients in need of our services.  Please be courteous and notify us by phone or email if you are unable to attend an appointment at least 2 working days prior to your scheduled appointment.  We will then be able to allocate this time to someone on our waiting list.  Please note that if you miss an appointment or reschedule inside the requested 48 hours the full consultation fee will be charged.


Net Medical Expenses Tax Offset

Naturopathic consultations (at our clinic in Noosa Heads) and supplements can count towards the net medical expenses tax offset.

Please inquire with your accountant for up to date advice on this ‘medical tax offset’.
