Consultations are individualised to your needs and the concerns you raise with your Dietitian. More information can be found below about what to expect from your consultations as you progress. Consultations can be provided in person or via telehealth (online video call or via the phone). At Habits for Health, we know your time is valuable and we allocate your appointment time to you alone. We do not double book or overlap our appointment times. Our consultations are longer so that you have the time required to discuss your concerns with your consultant, and we do our best to keep all appointments on time.
