Your consultation with the dietitian can last from forty to sixty minutes, depending on the complexity of the issues involved. At this consultation, the dietitian will review your usual diet in the context of your medical history and the specific reasons that your doctor reffered you.

Then the dietitian will work with you to develop a dietary plan that will fulfill your medical needs as well as being tailored to suit your lifestyle and particular situation. Education on this dietary plan will ensure that you are well equipped to make the necessary nutritional and lifestyle changes. The dietitian will then review you on an ongoing basis as required, to continue supporting you.

 

A medical consultation involves a meeting with your specialist lasting from twenty minutes up to one hour depending the complexity of each medical case. At the consultation, your doctor will review your/your child symptoms and perform an examination. He or she will also review your/and your child's medical history, including any past surgery, your family's medical history and medications - both current and previous medications, and any other relevant information. It is important you complete the online health questionnaire prior to your consultation.

After assessment, your doctor will create a management plan that may involve any of the following,

  • Diagnostic imaging / scans
  • Endoscopy or other procedures
  • Medical therapy
  • Recommended nutritional or lifestyle changes
  • Surgical options

Your opinion and feedback is of the utmost importance in this process.
