New Patient Forms / Clinic Information
Welcome to urban sense wellness clinic.
This page contains important information about your forthcoming appointment and requires you to complete the online New Patient Health History Form. (See link below)
What Happens at Your Initial Consultation?
Prior to your consultation, your Practitioner will review your completed New Patient Health History Form. This information will allow your Practitioner to undertake a detailed and comprehensive discussion during your consultation about your current health history and establish your key health goals.
Initial Consultation Duration
Please allow between 70 - 90 minutes for your initial consultation.
Information on our fees can be found on our Schedule of Fees page.
Our Approach to Health
At urban sense wellness clinic, we take your health concerns seriously. That's why we have developed our own 3 step process to manage your health goals.
Step 1: Your initial consultation is designed to ensure we understand your complete health history and your underlying medical condition.
Step 2: Next, we perform a series of comprehensive diagnostic tests and evaluations designed to establish your baseline level of wellness and any underlying contributing factors relating to your current condition.
Step 3: After we assess your results your practitioner will then prescribe a tailored treatment plan to maximise your return to wellness and good health.
New Patient Health History Form - Online Electronic Form
As part of our integrated approach to your health, we request that you complete the Online Patient Health History Form. A link is attached below. Note: Other appointment types may require a different form.
You will notice that the information we ask you to supply is both extensive and thorough in its level of detail. The more information you’re able to supply to us, will assist in helping your Practitioner understand your specific health issues as comprehensively as possible. It will also contribute to the development of any future treatment plan.
To complete this information properly takes some patients at least 20 minutes. Please allow yourself enough time prior to returning your forms to complete this task.
How to Complete the Form
The Patient History Form is completed online electronically.
When Does This Form Need to be Completed?
Your completed Patient Form needs to be completed online, at least 48 hours prior to your initial appointment.
Please Note. If you are unable to complete your online New Patient Health History Form, please let our reception staff know as soon as possible
Arriving late to your appointment means that there will be less time available to see your Practitioner and can lead to undue stress on the day.
Pathology / Blood Tests
In addition to the above, we recommend that you complete the following blood tests if possible before your initial appointment. If you have completed any of these tests with your GP or another practitioner within the last six months please ask for a copy of these tests to bring along with you to your consultation.
Full Blood Count
Full Biochemistry (Including Uric Acid and Liver Function)
FBE and Iron Studies
Serum Copper and Plasma Zinc
RBC Folate and Serum B12
Thyroid Function Test: TSH, FT4, FT3
Fasting Insulin and HbA1c
These tests are not compulsory to attend your initial appointment, but help in providing your Practitioner with an accurate picture of your current nutritional and health issues. This is an evidence based natural medicine clinic and results of Pathology Testing if required, can take sometimes 2-6 weeks before your results are ready.
Current Medications and Supplements
Please bring along to your consultation, all of your current prescription medications and supplements.
Initial Consultation and Additional Fees
In addition to your Initial Appointment Consultation Fee, further charges may apply for Nutritional and Herbal Supplements, Diagnostic Assessments, and Pathology Testing. Your Practitioner will discuss this with you at your consultation, should these be required.
Payment for your consultation is due on the day of your appointment.
Young Children and Infants
To make the best use of your consultation and to allow your Practitioner to focus on you and your health concerns, we recommend if possible, that infants and young children be left at home with a relative as they can easily be distracted and become restless during this extended initial appointment.
If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason, please call the clinic 48 hours in advance to enable cancellation and re-scheduling of your appointment. If we do not receive sufficient notice, a cancellation fee will be charged. This fee will need to paid before you can re-book another consultation.
