As local doctors who own the practice, we aim to provide excellence in diagnostic pathology services, for general and specialist medical practitioners in the Sunshine Coast region, with an emphasis on personalized service, accuracy and reliability.


Coastal Pathology aims to provide testing services in anatomic pathology, cytopathology, specialized chemical pathology and microbiology throughout the Sunshine Coast region - providing a competitor to the existing large corporate pathology companies.


The partners are committed to operating to the highest ethical standard in dealings with all relevant parties (doctors, patients, government and other regulatory bodies), and will assiduously avoid practices which may be (or may be perceived to be) breaches of good and honest medical practice, and fair and reasonable business practice.

Things You Should Know About Us

We founded Coastal Pathology in 2005, because we were committed to providing a local service to the Sunshine Coast’s medical community of the highest quality, wherein accurate, timely and informative results and advice are paramount, rather than shareholder driven concerns for ever-increasing profits.

Since our commencement as a boutique histopathology service, we have since added cytology, microbiology and specialized chemical pathology (disaccharidase analysis). Tests we do not perform are referred to Pathology Queensland and/or Mater Pathology, providing a seamless service for our referring doctors.

Both of the pathologists are trained and accredited in all of the major pathology disciplines, with a combined experience of >30 years in both public and private Sunshine Coast pathology practice.

We also offer a “one-stop shop” consultative service, and are comfortable in answering all your questions about any of your patient’s pathology investigations. Unlike our competitors, we are happy to talk to you about an abnormal neutrophil count, an unusual chemical profile, an uncommon urinary bacterial isolate, etc., rather than having to speak to one (or more) persons you don’t know, located in a distant centralized laboratory.
