GP Team

Dr. Sarah Philpot

Weight Loss Practitioner

Sarah has been part of the medical weight loss team as a Bariatric GP since 2008. She graduated in Medicine in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK in 1989 and after a working holiday, decided to emigrate to Australia. She completed her fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practice in 1996 and moved to Buderim in 1997 to work as a GP and raise her four children.

She has always had a special interest in preventative medicine and especially lifestyle choices which influence health. It was therefore a natural progression in her career to join the team.

She has gained a good knowledge and expertise with lap bands, being able to give support and advice as well as performing adjustments. She also offers follow up reviews for all other Bariatric surgery procedures.
