Dr Mark Donohoe, one of Australia's best known Nutritional, Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine doctors, and his partner, Fiona Donohoe-Bales, of Bloom Yoga and Wellbeing, are combining to rebirth Mosman Integrative Medicine for 2018 and beyond.

We are now making changes to realise the original dream of Mosman Integrative Medicine - a centre to provide the community access to the best of evidence-based modalities for transforming health, providing each person the tools and techniques to build vigorous and resilient health. 

In short, we are moving from Integrative Medicine to Integrative Healthcare, taking what we have learned over the past three years to curate and provide the best information, education, products and modalities to improve our clients’ and patients’ health and recovery from serious and complex illness and diseases.

To register your interest in Bloom Yoga and Wellbeing Lifestyle Medicine courses and resources please email your name and contact details to Fiona or visit Womb in Bloom

We are just 1 km from the heart of Mosman at 4 Best Avenue, Mosman (in the Georges Heights precinct).

Other Practice Information

The following information is simply background information of a general nature.

Medicare rebates 
Medicare rebates are generally applicable for Australians for all medical consultations related to illness and disease diagnosis and treatment. Medicare does not cover prevention generally, and that is one of Medicare's greatest failings! It is an excellent disease treatment system, but a poor disease prevention system.

Mosman Integrative Medicine does not bulk-bill under any circumstances. All payments must be made at the conclusion of the consultation.

Long consultations
Complex and chronic illnesses are extremely difficult to manage within the constraints of normal General Practice in Australia, with its high reward for consultations under 15 minutes addressing one medical item per consultation.

Shoe-horning patients into brief consultations always resulted in compromises. To practice Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine, with the focus solely on the best care of our patients, we have had to decouple consultations and fees from the Medicare rebate.

Phone, FaceTime and Skype consultations
Many of our patients are very sick and come from outside the Sydney area, often from interstate or abroad. While much of the work and planning is done at the first consultation, follow-up consultations are usually required when all test results are back.

Telephone or video consultations are available for such follow-up of initial response to treatment and to identify abnormalities on the pathology testing which require additional or alternative treatment, further testing or referral.

The duration of these consultations can vary from a few minutes to more than an hour and are billed in increments of 10 minutes.

Selling treatments
There are a number of therapeutics that I prescribe that are not easily available in Australia, or are available only at considerable cost or with considerable difficulty. When this results in patients failing to take their prescribed treatment, we try to source these products for my patients at the lowest possible cost and for their convenience.

Mr Digby

Mr Digby, our much-loved Maltese Cavalier poodle, has been an important part of Dr Donohoe's patient care at MIM, and has delighted, calmed and supported many a patient over his eight years of "work" with us. 

Patients who do not want any contact with dogs, or who may be allergic to animals should let us know so that we can make sure he is not in the vicinity of the Practice on the day of your appointment. 

Mr Digby made a name for himself chasing ducks on YouTube a while back. Over 13 million people have viewed the video on YouTube and Facebook, and it can be watched by clicking here.
