ADHD – bookings with Dr Bochsler

Thank you for choosing Call to Mind for your upcoming telehealth appointment to assess whether ADHD is the appropriate diagnosis.

Please take the time to read this information carefully as it contains IMPORTANT information relating to your upcoming consultation.

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.

Fees:

ADHD consultations will incur out of pocket fees, as listed below.

Fee $750

Rebate $0

Payment details will be obtained before your booking and your account charged 3 business days prior to the appointment. If funds are not available, the appointment will be cancelled. At the conclusion of your appointment, any applicable rebates will then be processed with Medicare (which can take 48 hours).

Cancellations/Refunds:
