I aim to work alongside your GP/ consultant/regular medical attendant. I do not replace them.
The majority of my patients are individuals for whom standard pharmaceutical medicine on its own is not restoring their quality of life. Remember no one system of medicine/medical approach is ‘perfect’. The best medicine is individualized medicine – the ‘right’ medicine which means that it works effectively for the individual, restoring health and maintaining wellness.
Before making an appointment please make sure that any symptoms which are worrisome or need urgent assessment or treatment have been brought to the attention of your family doctor or consultant and that recommended assessments have been completed – we do not want your health to ‘fall between the cracks’.
Fees and Charges
Please note some fees increase effective Monday March 3rd, 2020.
Consultation fees have been held steady for four years despite significant cost increases.
We have been able to reduce some fees. Some fees have remained unchanged.
If you wish to cancel please give us two working days (48 hours) notice. A credit/visa card guarantee of 50% of the fee is required to confirm appointments. If you do not cancel your appointment within two working days (48 hours), or do not show up at all, you will be charged the amount of the deposit. Thank you for your understanding.
Second and subsequent consultations €225 (€245)- within one year of the last consultation
Some long-term bioidentical hormone replacement patients who are very ‘settled’ on their treatment and who do not require detailed reassessment may be offered ‘shorter’ recheck appointments at a reduced fee.
Pre-Procedure Consultation Once-off fee of €85 – to make sure procedure will be safe for you

Many standard blood tests are available at no charge through the hospital system. The phlebotomy fee is €35.
Some non-standard blood tests are done through private laboratories .
Tests such as salivary cortisol and DHEA are available directly through international laboratories such as Genova – you pay the wholesale cost of the test directly to the laboratory. This also applies to the Great Plains Laboratory Tests which we use (moulds, chemicals, etc)
For Dr William Walsh’s brain nutrient panel which includes homocysteine and urinary kryptopyrroles the cost is €370.
Food IgG, urinary organic acid testing, urinary mycotoxin (fungal toxin) testing, non-metal environmental chemical testing including glyphosate are among those tests offered by the Great Plains Laboratory including . For these tests you pay the laboratory directly. It is so important to investigate as fully as possible in unexplained illness so that the treatment approach is as rational as possible. To assist you to save your time we try to keep test kits for these tests in the clinic. I rely quite a lot on urinary markers for fungal/mycotoxins/ environmental chemicals in the body and also on urinary markers for bacterial infection such as clostridia in the bowel. See note below regarding stool testing.
Female hormone problems and testing for hormone levels in the past we experimented with saliva testing for female hormones but we found that these tests were quite expensive and did not yield significant extra diagnostic information. We prefer to rely on blood tests for oestrogen and progesterone taken at various points during the menstrual cycle – more reliable and much less expensive.
Stool testing in the past I used to do testing very frequently but found it to be quite an expensive and now I rely more on urinary markers to pick up clinically significant gut infections.
Heavy metal testing It is very difficult to be definitive about what is the best way to test for heavy metals. Over the years I have explored many options and at present we have gone back to the hair toxic metal screen which is offered by BioLab Medical Unit in London.
