How the Online Consultations works?
To get started, we'll deliver the body composition scales to your home before your appointment so you and your doctor can understand your individual biometrics (body fat, visceral fat, and muscle mass, biological age) and your basal metabolic rate (the number of calories your body burns at rest). Your body composition results will enable the Doctor to recommend a calorie intake per day for the Doctor prescribed weight loss meals that will help accelerate your results. Telehealth consultations work the exact same as a face-to-face consultation. With the scales with you, you and your doctor will be able to understand your body composition, and talk confidentially about your individual results and goals. If your doctor prescribes you a medication, we can send your e-script to your email or via SMS. PLEASE NOTE: You will only be eligible for a Medicare rebate for your Telehealth appointments, if you have had a face-to-face appointment with us in the last 12 months (as stipulated by the Australian Government). If not, you will be out of pocket our full fees.

From the very first week you start putting into practice what you have been seeing, eating and living for 2 days a week to help make your changes permanent. This has significantly contributed to the success for our patients losing the fat and keeping it off long term.

There are 3 Doctor's consultations. The initial consultation with the Doctor and then there will be the second consultation - which is 3 weeks after you have started the meals and the final consultation which will be at 6 weeks after you first started the meals.
