Dr Michael Katiforis
Double Bachelor of Health Science/Applied Science (Osteopathy)
Mike is an enthusiastic individual with a strong passion for health and helping out others. These two reasons in particular are what led him down the path of osteopathy. His interest in osteopathy began from a young age as he had always been intrigued about how the human body functioned. His interest grew even further through his love of playing soccer and after being exposed to multiple injuries during his playing career.
Mike is very friendly, empathetic and cares for the wellbeing of others. He believes that a strong patient practitioner relationship is essential and that this provides the foundation for good communication and education. He believes that putting himself in his patient’s shoes helps him establish what’s important to them, and therefore providing treatments that aims to get them back to doing things they enjoy and value.
When Mike is not working, he enjoys spending time with family and hanging out with his friends. He is a soccer fanatic and loves watching his beloved Arsenal play. He also enjoys going to the gym and spending time down at the beach.
