Angela Hsiao

Dietitian & Diabetes Educator

I am an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) and Credentialed Diabetes Educator (CDE). I am passionate about providing dietary advice, diabetes education and support for patients with gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes as well as dietary advice for patients with obesity, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, renal disease, liver disease and food allergies or intolerances. I am fluent in English and Mandarin.

I have a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics degree from the University of Sydney and I have been practising as an accredited dietitian since 1999. I have been a diabetes educator since 2008, after completing my second post-graduate certificate from UTS. I have been in private practice for over 15 years and have a conjoint appointment with the University of Western Sydney.

Claire Garsin

Receptionist

I started working with Dr Monika Fazekas-Lavu as a Practice Receptionist in February 2021. I look forward to providing Dr Monika and Angela's patients with the quality care and support they deserve.

Prior to working at this practice, I worked as an Advertising Creative Designer within the Australian Publishing industry for over 11 years.

 

Recently, I enjoyed a career break to focus on caring for our two beautiful children and supporting my husband's career aspirations. I enjoy a good holiday, volunteering at our local church, baking with my children and enjoying the sunshine of our beautiful city Sydney.

Natalie Marocchini

Receptionist

I started working with Dr Monika Fazekas-Lavu as a Practice Receptionist in June 2021. I am thankful to Dr Monika for giving me the opportunity to work in her practice and provide the utmost quality of service, to not only our patients but to Dr Monika Fazekas-Lavu & Angela Hsiao.


Prior to working with Dr Monika Fazekas-Lavu, I worked as an Administrator Assistant within an Income Protection Insurance company for 2.5 years.


In my free time, I enjoy doing a little retail therapy, travelling and spending quality time with my family.
