Dr Katherine Rybak


Dr Katherine Rybak

Katherine’s upbringing took place in Hobart. In 2010, she earned her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from the University of Tasmania. Following this, she undertook her residency at Geelong Hospital and Western Health before settling in Melbourne. Having immersed herself in the Inner West community, Katherine considers herself fortunate to have cared for its members for several years and to now consider herself a local. Katherine is proud to be affiliated with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

In her practice of General Medicine, Katherine finds fulfillment in the diversity of cases and interactions with people. She harbours a particular interest in paediatric care but also finds fulfillment in various other areas, including Adolescent Health, Orthopaedics/Sports Medicine, Women’s Health, Mental Health, Preventative Health, and Travel Medicine. Katherine is accredited for Implanon insertion and proficient in conducting skin checks, minor procedures, and biopsies.

With her passion for early childhood development, she offers expert guidance and support to parents through the critical stages of infancy, ensuring both health and developmental milestones are met. She is adept at managing common childhood illnesses, chronic conditions, and developmental concerns, creating a nurturing environment where young patients feel comfortable and cared for. Her holistic approach encompasses not only medical treatment but also preventive care, including vaccinations and health education, aimed at fostering the long-term well-being of her patients. She remains committed to offering the highest standard of care to her young patients, ensuring their healthy transition into adulthood, by continuously updating her knowledge on the latest paediatric advancements.

Beyond her professional endeavours, Katherine devotes herself to her toddler. Despite the demands of parenthood, she still manages to pursue her passions for baking, gardening, and attending theatrical performances.

Please note: As a result of her special interest in paediatrics, Dr. Rybak does not bulk bill children. Dr Rybak will continue to bulk bill Health Care Card and Pensioner Card holders for Standard appointments.
