- This is only available on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia where Craig lives and works. Unless you want to fly him in or pay extra for travel time.
- Craig delivers a home-visiting service where he comes to you and works in the privacy and comfort of your own home. This alleviates the need to travel while incontinent and also allows him to work with your partner on board.
- This service applies to pre-operative consults (before prostate cancer surgery) or following the surgery.
- You can select an initial home visit consultation from the diary link below.
Online Appointment (Telehealth)
- A Telehealth appointment is an online video consultation using specialised technology to ensure your privacy and security.
- Craig is located in Australia so you will need to adjust your local time to fit with his limited online availability.
- You will need computer or device access with video and audio capability.
- Ideal for those not able to see Craig personally who need practical advice on their recovery program.
- You can select and pay for a Telehealth consultation from the diary link below.
Both the home service and online telehealth consultations are targeted for men –
- Awaiting surgery to remove their prostate and want to prepare their pelvic floor for recovery
- Recovering from surgery to remove their prostate and are using pads for bladder leakage
- Having urinary symptoms of frequency, urgency or dribbling (even without cancer or surgery)
- Experiencing erectile dysfunction following treatment
- Having post-treatment symptoms of pain, constipation, urinary frequency or urgency

- Looking for general health, nutrition and activity advice specific to prostate cancer recovery
- Seeking reassurance that they are doing all they can to maximise their recovery and health
How Many Appointments?
- The home visit service usually involves between two and six sessions depending on a range of factors like age, other health problems, nature of the prostate cancer and surgical procedure, your ambitions regarding lifestyle and activity and of course your compliance with the exercises.
- For the online sessions, most men require two or maybe three online consults to meet their goals. Again, it relies on them doing the work to achieve the results.
Are These Sessions Covered by Insurance?
- It depends on your insurer, you will need to check with them.
- In Australia, yes – a rebate can be claimed under the Extras table of private health fund members for both the home visit service and the Telehealth service.
Both services is not available under the Chronic Disease Management Program in Australia, but will incur a gap payment to the patient above the subsidy provided by the Government.
- Both the Telehealth rebate and the CDM program require a referral to Craig from your GP or Urologist.
