Naturopaths, Massage, Nutritionists, Acupuncturists & Osteopaths in Brisbane

Doctors at Vibe Natural Health in Brisbane

Many of our clients express frustration at not being able to find an experienced Doctor who will take the time to get to know them. A doctor who will ask the right questions, “go the extra mile” when needed, and really listen to their concerns. Providing comprehensive, and results focused care is important to us at Vibe Natural Health, which is why our standard Doctor’s consultations are 45 mins for an initial client and up to 30mins for a follow up consult. Our goal is to ensure you have the time you need to feel heard, ask questions, and fully understand your treatment plan.

Our doctors work closely with all of the allied health practitioners at Vibe, offering co-consults with our Naturopaths, and integrative care plans with our Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and Remedial Therapists, for those patients who may benefit from a team care approach.

She will happily work with your existing allied health practitioners on request, and is open to her patients using evidence based treatments, herbal medicines and nutritional supplements where she feels these might be of assistance and it is safe enough to do so.
