New Patient Appointments 

Please download, print off and complete our New Patient Application Form, and bring it in with you to your first appointment.

We request that all new patients arrive 30 minutes early for their first Doctor’s appointment to allow time for the completion of paperwork and to attend a pre-consultation visit with our Clinic Nurse prior to your appointment with your Doctor.

If you have already completed the New Patient Details form, you will only need to arrive 15 minutes prior.

Cancellations

If you are unable to attend your appointment please review our Cancellation and No Show policy here, which is also available at Reception in the Patient Information Folder and displayed on the wall.

Results

Test results require an appointment with the doctor. Your doctor will ask you to return for the results of a test rather than telephone. On some occasions, your doctor may feel it is suitable to give the result over the phone or to request our Clinic Nurse to give you your results. We ask that you respect the doctors decision regarding this.

Medical Services Available

Functional & Lifestyle Medicine: Dr Sharon Chant is a Functional Medicine doctor. As a Functional Medicine doctor, Sharon strives to maximise your health with nutrition, meaning the right foods for your body and your metabolism.

Exercise, healthy mind and good thoughts, quality sleep and spiritual practices are all needed for optimizing mind, body and spirit. Vitamin and mineral supplements may also be needed to reach your optimal health.

Dr Chant had 20 years in Homeopathy before commencing Medicine in her mid 40’s. She was brought up in a family where their family doctor was ahead of his time and used Vitamins and Minerals to balance body function; so this was where she headed when she graduated from Medicine.

She has a bachelor of homeopathy, a bachelor of medicine (hons) and has completed further studies with the Institute of Functional Medicine and the Walsh Institute (Bio Balance). Click Here for more information
