Dr Duffy feels strongly that the consultation forms a large part of a patient’s therapeutic journey, therefore she doesn’t conduct consultations by email.
Email communication is reserved for clarification of appointments reinforcement/clarification of prescribing advice.
Please note that, unfortunately, medical insurance does not normally cover treatment for menopause care.
For most women the diagnosis of menopause is a clinical one based on age, symptoms and a change in menstrual pattern. In women aged > 45 years, the diagnosis is a clinical one made by the doctor. However young women aged < 40 require blood tests to be taken to establish a diagnosis of Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI). In addition, blood tests may be suggested to exclude other causes for symptoms such as anaemia or an underactive thyroid gland. This will be discussed in full at the consultation. Some women also request bloods as part of an overall health check and this can be arranged.
The cost of bloods is in addition to the consultation fee.
