This will take 10 minutes to complete and provides valuable information to maximise the value from your consult. Sonya prioritises sticking to her scheduled times however sometimes short 5-10 minute delays may occur due to the nature of the consults. Please keep an eye on the computer screen for the "Join" button to pop up. This means Sonya has entered the virtual consult room and is letting you in for the consult to start.
Do I need to have anything prepared for the consult?
Please ensure you have completed and submitted the online AIA New Client Intake Form emailed when your booking was made. Feel free to share any latest blood results or changes in medications or investigation reports with Sonya during or prior to the consultation. These can be emailed to email@example.com. Choose a quiet room for your consultation to ensure good sound quality and minimise distraction. Ensure your audio is working and your computer or phone has ample charge and that your internet connection is strong and stable.
