Dr Katherine Lypourlis

General Practitioner


Dr Katherine Lypourlis is a General Practitioner passionate about health and wellness, with a special interest in preventative medicine.

Dr Katherine Lypourlis has over 12 years of General Practice experience and believes 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.

Dr Katherine seeks to collaborate with patients and their wellness provider team. She aims 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. She strives to provide her services in an inclusive, supportive, welcoming environment, where people feel safe, strong and confident.

Dr Katherine graduated from Monash University with a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree in 1999. She 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, she has worked as a general practitioner in South Australia, in Canada (Victoria, BC), and most recently back in Melbourne.

She became a doctor to help people become the strongest version of themselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. She prides herself on approaching health and wellness with understanding, empathy and care. She is grateful for, and respectful of, the privilege that she has to be included in the personal journeys of her patients.

When she’s not working, Dr Katherine enjoys exercising in any form, travelling to any place that has a beach, and spending time with her extraordinary, funny friends and wonderful family- Dallas, Mary, Jorja, Kallie and Alfie (our golden retriever).
