Please read the following carefully

You acknowledge your understanding of our terms and conditions and our Privacy Policy when you submit or complete any form provided by you at Beijing Clinic Pty Ltd.

Payment Policy
Fees are payable at the time of consultation and can be made by cash, credit card or EFTPOS. We do provide an invoice at time of payment. If you require medical fund receipts, please advise. Herbal Guard is not responsible for which medical fund you belong to and what rebate you are entitled to. That is between the private fund’s discretion.

Treatment Schedule
The treatment schedule recommended by your health professional is designed to give you the best possible results. Missed or rescheduled appointments may undermine the efficiency of your treatment. If your treating practitioner is ever ill or not available for any reason, we will always endeavour to have a colleague available to treat you.

All Herbal Guard practioners have your patient file available to them in such circumstances to help ensure you continue to achieve the best possible outcomes. If we are unable to have a colleague available, we will call you prior your arrival at Herbal Guard to reschedule your appointment for another convenient time. A centre credit can be organised if we are unable to organise another time available. The credit will be to the value of the treatment in which you pay for. If it was a voucher payment, it will at the value of what was paid at time of purchase.

Waiting Time
Despite our best intentions, we sometimes run late! This is usually because someone has required extended attention. Be assured that when your turn comes we will not rush to catch up, but will give you the time you need. Please feel free to ring us prior to your appointment to find out if we are running behind. In the eventuality that we are running well over time, we will contact you prior to your appointment.

Refund Policy

Please choose carefully. We do not normally give refunds if you change your mind or make a wrong decision, due to our products being under the strict OH&S policy.

We will not refund on remedies or therapeutic goods prescribed especially or cosmetics without a seal. Please be aware that it is your
