Dr Richard Schloeffel

Dr Richard Schloeffel graduated in 1978 from NSW University along with post-graduate training in an isolated rural general practice. He worked in country practices for thirteen years and spent five years working in the developing world, including Papua New Guinea, China, India, Bali and Eastern Europe.

For the last twenty years he has been the principal at Pymble Grove Health Centre where he has been treating complex and chronic disorders with an integrative team of practitioners.

This broad experience has been invaluable in developing the diagnosis and treatment of chronic disorders and the ability to look beyond the existing paradigms to a deeper and more profound understanding of complex diseases, particularly Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Borreliosis and co-infections as well as Auto Immune Disease.

Dr Schloeffel has treated over three and a half thousand patients with CFS and related disorders, refining diagnosis and appropriate investigations and management protocols. He has lectured widely on CFS as well as Borreliosis and co-infections.

He is currently President of The Australian Chronic Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases Society (ACIIDS) and is assisting with The Tick Bourne Disease Research Unit at Sydney University. He is pro-active in helping Doctors and Patients understand chronic disease.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that in 2017 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for his work with Chronic and Infectious Diseases.
