About

A new and unique medical centre in West End, River Tree Health will be known as the place to go for more considered treatment.

A place where our clients see the collaboration between practitioners as we consider a multifaceted, integrated approach to gaining and maintaining wellness.

This is a medical practice for clients who want a better service and a contemporary approach to medicine.  Unlike an “old-school” medical clinic, River Tree Health provides a beautiful ambience where clients feel comfortable, relaxed and special, and confident in knowing their practitioner is taking time to properly analyse and refer to the team to consider evidence based physical, mental and emotional approaches to help clients recover from and prevent illness, and work towards enhancing optimal lifelong health.

We aim to help our clients be so healthy that they spend less time visiting doctors and less money on medications over the long term.  This process takes time, so we will truly partner with our clients over a period of time to help them achieve a significant improvement in their health.

We love what we do and want to share our knowledge for the good of our team, our clients, and our community. We are serious about our own development and actively engage in shared learning experiences, as well as sharing new research and knowledge with our internal and external communities.

River Tree Health is a contemporary practice aiming to use technology to the benefit of our clients, helping them access us easily, in person or remotely, for a better client experience.  We aim to stay contemporary and look forward to integrating new approaches for the benefit of our clients and our team.

The Team

River Tree Health has established a team of integrative medical practitioners and allied health professionals who work together to provide the best care tailored to the needs of the client.

All our practitioners share an underlying interest in the recent research on gut-health. While our regular clients can schedule to pop-in for a quick script renewal or medical certificate, our practitioners and all at River Tree Health will encourage and educate our clients and our community in the benefits of taking the time for proper investigation and developing root-cause treatment plans, for longer term and sustainable health. 

With our ongoing motivation to stay contemporary, we will support all our practitioners to learn, share and develop our knowledge and expertise together as a team. We are a multidisciplinary community who share a love of understanding how our disciplines interact to effect an outcome which is greater than the sum of its parts.
