Functional Medicine Consultations:
all clients are requested to send in detailed intake questionnaire forms at least 5 days prior to their initial consultation. This is reviewed in detail prior to your initial appointment. During the initial appointment you can expect to be asked further questions related to your physical and emotional health. Examination of relevant areas may be undertaken. A summary will be sent to you by a password protected link to medical record software. In follow-up consultations I will provide detailed review of investigations, may recommend supplements and will provide answers to any questions to the best of my ability.
My intention is to provide a comprehensive health service for individuals wishing to improve their health, understand more about what is needed for their individual body, and eventually for people to feel confident in knowing what is right for them at the right time. (Not to think that people will no longer need medical review if needed in the future).
I am a registered medical practitioner with the Australasian Health Care Practitioner Agency (AHPRA). I completed my medical degree (BMBS BMedSci) at Nottingham University, UK and Rehabilitation Physician specialist training (FAFRM (RACP)) in Australia. Further training in Functional Medicine has been through ACNEM, ACAAM, IFM and SAFM.
I have completed over 3 years of detailed training and examination in functional medicine, with peer review of my clinical interactions. I see my responsibility as a medical doctor with comprehensive review of health, looking for the root cause of disease, and addressing contributing factors to my best ability.
Clients need to be honest with their information. If they have any concerns or something unexpected has happened, please communicate with Dr Braid. Perform your own research on supplements that may be recommended during your consultation.
If a prescription is given it is expected to be taken as recommended. Do not share your prescription with anyone else.
There are additional costs for some recommended functional medicine diagnostic tests. These are not compulsory however may assist in comprehensive health assessment and management. Supplements may be recommended and will need to be purchased by the individual.
Please return the initial questionnaire in the time frame specified. Further questionnaires may be sent electronically prior to future visits.
If a client has significant psychological issues, working with a mental health professional prior to consultation with Dr Braid may be advised.
This service is primarily intended to benefit a woman in her 20-60s looking to address her symptoms which she continues to have, despite being told they are normal. An individual looking to dive deep into finding root causes of their hormonal imbalance, resistant weight, mood changes and skin changes. An individual keen to better understand their gut health and how good gut health contributes to overall wellbeing. This is not a female only practice. Men can also benefit from functional medicine approach to health.
Dr Braid does not see children of 15 years and under.

If you have any issue or complaint arising out of your use of this website or these terms and conditions, you and Braid Health (I) agree to make a genuine effort to resolve the dispute through negotiation and discussion.
If we are unable to resolve a dispute by negotiation and discussion within 14 days, we agree to proceed to mediation with the assistance of an independent accredited mediator, seeking online dispute resolution or mediation by telephone if we are not both in the same location.
