New Obstetrician for Toowoomba and Darling Downs
Dr David Chettle has opened his practice Evolve Women’s Health in the Medical Centre at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital, Toowoomba. Dr Chettle, a specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, began seeing patients in the first week of March.
Dr Chettle recently moved to Toowoomba from Brisbane with his wife and three children. Dr Chettle said that the reason for the move was to provide a better lifestyle for his family with an improved work-life balance.
“Toowoomba is such a beautiful city, you have everything you could possibly need here, without being amidst the traffic and noise of Brisbane. We are really enjoying all the beautiful parks and open spaces and the luxury of being only 5-10 minutes away from most things”, he said.
With extended family in Brisbane, Dr Chettle said that Toowoomba was a logical choice for his family, being just an hour and a half from the City, but also with the facilities and opportunities he was looking for.
“St Vincent’s have recently updated their facilities, so I’m excited to have the opportunity to operate in some of the new technologically advanced theatres” he said.
“My goal in opening Evolve Women’s Health is to provide exceptional care to the women of Toowoomba and the greater Darling Downs region. My wife and I have personally experienced the roller coaster of having a baby and we understand how difficult it can be. Our hope in opening our practice is to offer excellent care in a warm and welcoming environment.
“Our practice is a bit different from the usual, in our waiting room we have a separate play area for the kids, with dedicated kids TV; tea, coffee and cold water for our patients, as well as snacks and poppers for the kids. Our hope is that our patients and mums-to-be feel considered and comfortable and are able to relax a little whilst visiting us.”
Dr Chettle said he and his family had found the local residents to be extremely helpful and welcoming.
“I’m looking forward to becoming part of the Toowoomba and Darling Downs Medical Community” he said.
