Sue Parle

PA / Senior Medical Administrator

Trained as a registered nurse, Sue put a temporary hold on her nursing career when she took on the just-as-busy position of mother to two boys. Upon returning to the workforce once her children were well ensconced in school, she made the move into medical administration. This saw her working for ten years in ophthalmology and colorectal clinics before joining the team at COGA.

Along with her deep sense of empathy, Sue’s strong work ethic and high level of organisation are invaluable to our busy practice. As a conduit between busy doctors and their patients, she is both personable and precise, while also staying on top of broader administration tasks. After working in nursing, she particularly appreciates COGA’s focus on high quality service and patient care.

With a strong belief that women should not have to suffer in silence, Sue finds immense job satisfaction in having the opportunity to assist patients struggling with fertility and smoothing the road for those experiencing menopause symptoms.

In her downtime, Sue enjoys cooking for friends and family, and is an advocate for both yoga and reading as decompression activities. When she can, she loves travelling overseas. Being included in a friend’s traditional wedding in Northern India was a travel highlight. Still, Sue’s heart will always lie in the Greek Islands.
