Own your Health and Wellness


I’m Katherine Lypourlis, a general practitioner passionate about health and wellness, with a special interest in preventative medicine.

I believe patient healthcare should be provided in a way and in an environment that empowers individuals to identify their own health goals and decide on the best course of action to achieve these goals. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship between GP and patient is paramount. Clear communication and trust are essential so that open conversations can occur and the health care journey can begin.

I seek to collaborate with patients and their wellness provider team. I aim to take the time needed to understand patients’ personal health and wellness goals, to then provide them with evidence based, up to date, resources, tools and education, to empower them to take an active role in achieving these goals. I strive to provide my services in an inclusive, supportive, welcoming environment, where people feel safe, strong and confident.

I graduated from Monash University with a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree in 1999. I worked at Monash Medical Center and at the Austin and Repatriation Medical Center as a resident, prior to specialising in General Practice and receiving my Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) in 2011. Since then, I have worked as a general practitioner in South Australia, in Canada (Victoria, BC), and most recently back in Melbourne.

I became a doctor to help people become the strongest version of themselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. I pride myself on approaching health and wellness with understanding, empathy and care. I am grateful for, and respectful of, the privilege that I have to be included in the personal journeys of my patients.

When I’m not working, I enjoy exercising in any form, travelling to any place that has a beach, and spending time with my extraordinary, funny friends and wonderful family- Dallas, Mary, Jorja, Kallie and Alfie (our golden retriever).
