TeleHealth Video Consults are now available as an alternative to clinic-based appointments. Details are available via the TeleHealth page on my website.
Having seen thousands of children with behavioural issues, in my opinion the majority of issues are best treated with the implementation of strategies that a parent or parents will put into place at home. Therefore, much of what is discussed in a clinic-based appointment is directly with the parent and typically does not rely on the child’s input. This means that TeleHealth Video Consults are a very effective means of providing the same treatment, without needing to attend a clinic. (For more information regarding this approach to the treatment of behavioural issues, please see my article “The Most Common Cause of Behavioural Issues”.)
This service is primarily for rural and remote families whom obviously find it very difficult to access services. If you live in a rural area (please see the TeleHealth page for criteria) and if you have a Mental Health Care Plan, you can access full Medicare Rebates for these services.
However, please note that TeleHealth Video Consults are available to ANY Private Patient. In other words, if you do not wish to access the Medicare Rebate and therefore chose to pay for the consult privately, TeleHealth sessions can be a convenient way to address the concerns you have about your child’s behaviour. (Priority is however given to rural and remote families.)
We are doing TeleHealth as well and clinic appointments at Christies Beach. Simply fill up the form or contact us.
