We remain open as an Essential Allied Health Service.
Weight & Metabolic Solutions Australia is committed to supporting your health at this challenging time. To support our community of patients and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 we have implemented new appointment and clinic policies and procedures as per the National Guideline.
Nutrition, Psychology and Psychiatry
Our Dietitian, Lisa Bartzis and Psychologist Hayley Fung and Psychiatrist Dr Anastasia Braun and Psychiatrist Dr George Bruxner are still seeing their regular patients who are in need of support, but under strict COVID-19 Infection Control standards.
General and Bariatric Patients
We will also continue to provide ongoing consultation for our general and bariatric patients, as well as continue to offer initial consultation for new patients. We will bulk bill all consultations with a valid referral. Without being able to predict what will happen from week to week, we are unable to provide definite surgery dates, however will be able to place you on the waiting list. If the suspension of elective surgeries are lifted anywhere in this year, we will provide you a reduced fee coded COVID19.
Duty of Care and Support to our patients through the stress...
Our team are operating from the clinic or remotely via Telehealth by utilising Zoom, Skype or Coviu platforms already built into our clinic operations - its standard for our long distance patients.
Our community and patients are so important to us. We want to be here for you to lean on during the stress and anxiety that many of us are undoubtedly feeling. We are dedicated to our ongoing support for your continuity of care. Maintaining your health during uncertain times, disruption and increasing stress is essential, not only for your long-term health but also to assist in your capacity to cope with the current state of the world.
We have committed ourselves to operate 100% via remote pathways should the need occur so that we provide ongoing care to our current patients and are available to new patients who find themselves needing our support at this difficult time.
