Dr. Sacha Cattani - ATUNE Health Centres - General Practitioner

BA, Major in Psychology, MBBS, FRACGP

Our newest addition to ATUNE is Dr. Sacha Cattani, an experienced, fully vocational General Practitioner, with a passion for patient-centred and holistic care, based on the values of prevention and Lifestyle Medicine.

The field of Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence-based branch of medicine focused on self-care, whereby the patient actively takes.a role with their GP in the prevention and treatment of disorders caused by lifestyle factors (like heart disease, overweight/obesity and Type 2 diabetes.) This approach is in contrast to the former, more paternalistic doctor-centred consult.

Using her knowledge and skills in Lifestyle Medicine, Dr Cattani will ensure that you, the patient, are fundamentally in control of what you want your health to be like, now and in the future. Dr. Cattani feels most rewarded in working alongside her patients to see them thrive and achieve their best possible selves.

Dr Cattani's professional interests lie in person-centred weight management, mental health, contraception & sexual health. She also sees patients for more traditional GP consults. She offers consults in English or Spanish.

In her spare time, Dr Cattani enjoys ocean swimming and doing outdoor activities with her family and close friends in beautiful Lake Macquarie.
