All appointments booked for an ADHD assessment with Dr Bochsler require a private (non-Medicare) one-off consultation. Your psychiatrist may also need to speak with your GP or other professionals involved in your care, and in some cases may need to speak with your carers or family members to get additional information to assist with your assessment.
If diagnosis of ADHD is confirmed Dr Bochsler will provide support to your GP to act as the primary prescriber for medications if they are required. All states have their own requirements regarding prescriptions. The psychiatrist will send a comprehensive report and management plan to your GP to assist your GP in applying for authority and prescribing medications.
Stimulant prescribing rules are state-based. Prescribing authority will be transferred to your GP following completion of your assessment, Dr Bochsler DOES NOT PRESCRIBE THESE MEDICATIONS. Please ensure your GP is happy to take over prescribing following your assessment.
ADHD consultations will incur out of pocket fees, as listed below.
Please note that we require a minimum of 48 hours notice to cancel an appointment. Due to the high volume and demand for ADHD referrals, late notice cancellations or failure to attend these appointments will incur a $150 fee which will be deducted from any refunded fees.
It is a requirement for these consultations that the below questionnaires are completed and returned prior to scheduling an appointment. Please download and complete these forms and send them back to us (via firstname.lastname@example.org).
Note: your appointment will not be booked until we have received all of these completed questionnaires
It is also a requirement for these consultations that your GP agree to act as the ongoing prescriber for any medications. Please discuss this with your GP and ask them to review, sign and return the below form, and send it to us along with the above questionnaires. If this GP is different to the referring GP, we will need a new referral.
Please note: whilst we would like to be able to assist with these questionnaires unfortunately our team do not have the capacity over the phone to do so.
Once you have completed these forms and have sent them to email@example.com, we will contact you to arrange your appointment.
