Meet the staff
Our world-class team take great pride in providing our patients with a personalised treatment experience.
Qualified gynaecology professionals
Gynae North has a team of six highly qualified and experienced specialist gynaecologists, ably supported by our specialist gynaecology nurses. Together with our Administration and Support staff, Gynae North provides patients with an individual, personalised treatment and a high level of patient care.
Our expert team of Doctors is lead by Medical Director, Dr Vince Chapple, and Clinical Director, Dr Jay Natalwala.
Vince and Jay have worked together in practice for over twenty-five years. Each with a skillset and expertise that complements the other, and sharing their special interest in infertility, endometriosis and laparoscopic surgery, they are committed to delivering first-class patient care.
Above their significant clinical experience, each of our Fertility Doctors is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RANZCOG), with additional Masters training in Reproductive Medicine.
