Your first appointment

At Gen Physio, your first appointment with a Dietitian will focus on understanding your health and nutrition goals; lifestyle; medical history and key factors impacting your nutrition; and dietary habits. Through this discussion, your Dietitian will be able to discuss realistic and achievable strategies that align with your identified health and nutrition goals.

Our Dietitians are skilled in providing advice and guidance on the best dietary and lifestyle changes to meet your needs and help you reach your health goals. Through this consultation, you will be provided with individualised, tailored advice to help you make the most of your health and wellbeing.

Follow-up Dietitian appointments

We understand how important following up with your Dietitian is to help you achieve your health goals. That’s why our team will often recommend regular visits to monitor and support your progress.

Follow-up appointments are important for ensuring you stay on track to reach your desired health outcomes. With our professional and experienced Dietitians, you can be sure you’re receiving the best care and advice for your individual needs.

Telehealth

At Gen Physio, you can benefit from the convenience of accessing Dietitian services remotely via telehealth. This innovative technology allows us to deliver health services wherever you are, using telephone and videoconferencing.

With this service, you can have access to specialised nutrition advice and dietitian services in your home, no matter where you are located.

Referrals

A referral is not required to see a Dietitian. However, seeing a GP before your appointment may be helpful, as your doctor may provide insight on chronic health conditions or order a blood test to help give your Dietitian more background information. There is also a possibility that you may require a GP referral to access government benefits, such as Medicare or the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
