Your First Visit
Here’s What To Expect
When you first come to the clinic, we aim to greet clients with a warm welcome. As a team we want to do everything we can to try and ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed in the clinic environment. We hope to achieve providing an informal, relaxed yet professional space.
Each speciality and practitioner are different in the way they work and what is required when you come into the clinic for the first time. Usually there will be an initial meeting appointment, which offers an opportunity for practitioners to gain an overview of the problem you would like to address and what you would like to achieve by coming along. This also offers an opportunity for you to ask the practitioner some questions about their speciality and how they might be able to help you.
