David Holden
David Holden has 30 years full time Clinical Experience, he is one of THE most experienced Natural Medicine Practitioners in Australasia.  He has two degrees, five Post Graduate Qualifications,  and has studied Post Grad Naturopathic Oncology in the USA since 1997.

*The reason Oncology & hard to treat cases are charged for at a highly hourly rate is due to the extra work involved in reading MRI / CT / X ray scan results, medical Oncology reports, laboratory test results and writing letters to Medical Oncologists and Hospitals and other Specialists that may become involved in such cases. There is also a lot more work having to liaise with other Medical Health Professionals. This work is very time consuming and there is additional administration and behind the scenes work with cancer cases that isn’t billed for. This is recognition of the extra work involved for both David and his Admin staff in such cases. Our work doesn’t finish when your consult does, often this is where the real work begins! We receive NO subsidies from the Government or the DHB’s and PHO’s. Please bring to all sessions any supplements, herbal medicines, homeopathics or medically prescribed drugs so David can double check for any interactions or he cannot guarantee your safety without sighting your prescriptions. Drug-drug interactions are surprisingly common; drug- supplement interactions are far rarer and usually not as serious.

**A cancellation fee of $150.00 will be charged if an appointment is cancelled within 48 hours of the appointment unless debilitating illness, accidents, or emergencies has necessitated short notice cancellation and then the fees may be waived at our discretion. Please ensure you keep appointments to avoid us charging our cancellation fee.

The cancellation fee applies in particular to new patient bookings.

A WORD ABOUT OUR FEE STRUCTURE

Most people don’t fully realize that medical fees in NZ are at least 50% subsidized by the NZ Government so it is not a level playing field between fees charged by your GP & Medical Specialists compared with non ACC registered Private Naturopathic Specialists like David Holden. We receive NO subsidies on Nurses, Admin staff and Practitioner’s time, so the costs of running our business are very high. Our practitioners do not get all of the fees charged; a set % is paid to run administration services provided at Holden HealthCare for bookings and client liaison. We also have high building rentals, tax and GST as well, it all adds up!

More and more patients are taking out private health insurance and some of these companies will pay out on a % of certain practitioners’ fees (between 25-50%) but not on tests. They will also NOT pay out for dietary supplements, herbal medicines and homeopathics prescribed by David.

Our advice is take out a good health insurance policy that covers you for Specialist Naturopathic Services. If you have any questions about your bill please ask Holden HealthCare’s front desk staff, they are there to help you and handle all billing enquiries.

Phone 09 282 3588 or email us.

Payment plans may be available by prior arrangement with our Office Manager in some cases. It is best you discuss any arrangements BEFORE your initial consult.
