Appointments to quit smoking

I am available for consultations in-person to help smokers quit. This involves a full assessment and developing a personalised plan for your needs. Treatment is based on evidence-based medical advice, medication or vaping nicotine where appropriate and ongoing support as long as you need it.

You do not need a referral to see me, but a letter from your doctor with details of your health and medications is helpful.

The first consultation is 45-60 minutes, the second usually 30 minutes and subsequent appointments are usually 15 minutes. To make a booking online, fill out the form above. Otherwise you can ring me on 0415 976 783 or send an email to mendel@bigpond.net.au.  Please download and complete this assessment form and email it to me before your appointment.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please contact me as soon as possible so the time can be allocated to someone else.

Prescriptions for vaping

If you are a vaper, I am available to discuss your need for a prescription.

It is a criminal offence to import or use nicotine liquid in Australia unless you have a prescription from a doctor.

I provide this service by video or phone consultation to vapers Australia-wide. I prefer video consultations with Zoom, but can also do Skype, Facetime or WhatsApp.

All prescription consultations for current vapers are bulk-billed.

Please fill in this smoking and vaping questionnaire and contact me for an appointment by phone 0415 976 783 or by email mendel@bigpond.net.au.
