Your Appointment

What to expect

Your initial appointment is one hour long and involves a very extensive assessment so that we can determine all the factors contributing to your condition(s). Follow up appointments are generally half an hour. 

The treatment room is very private and comfortable.

In some cases where your condition relates to the pelvic floor muscles, bowel or bladder it is beneficial for Kate to perform an internal vaginal or rectal examination as part of the assessment. The information from this assessment is very valuable in determining the best treatment options for you.   

If Kate recommends an internal examination for you, this will be discussed in more detail at your appointment. If you are not comfortable with having an internal examination, that is totally up to you. Our real time ultrasound machine can also provide information about the pelvic floor function and only requires visualisation of the lower tummy area. 

Consult Costs:

   Initial Consult 1 hour $180.00

        (Concession $150.00)

   Follow Up Consult 30 mins $110.00

        (Concession $95.00)

If you have private health cover for physiotherapy, you will be able to claim a rebate for the consult. 

Kate does also accept Care Plan referrals (CDM/TCA) from your GP. In this instance you will receive up to 5 sessions of physiotherapy for which you will receive a Medicare rebate of $54.60. You will be billed at concession rates for your appointment if you have a Care Plan. You will need to pay for the consult in full on the day, then claim back your rebate from Medicare either online or in person.  

  

Please fill out the contact form and get in touch if you have any questions.

I saw Kate last week and she is an amazing pelvic health physio. Her knowledge and assistance is worth more than I can explain in words. Thank you Kate and I look forward to my next appointment

Thank you Kate for helping me after the birth of my baby. I was so fearful before I saw you, I felt like my body was broken. You restored my confidence in my body and I will always be thankful for that.
