Cancellation Policy

Please note that cancellations within 24hours will incur a $50 cancellation fee. We understand that at times things come up and appointments need to be changed but we appreciate advanced notice so that your unwanted appointment time can be offered to another client and that the dietitian does not get left wondering if you are able to attend your allocated appointment.


If you have complex health condition(s), shared care with your GP or medical specialist is encouraged therefore a referral or letter from your doctor, detailing your current medical conditions and treatments is appreciated. If you have a referral please fax through to The Food Clinic on 03 9111 0136 prior to your appointment. However you are also welcome to attend the clinic as a private patient, therefore not requiring a referral.
