Statement regarding practitioner claiming to be associated with Melbourne IVF
Melbourne IVF confirms that Raffaele Di Paolo has never been contracted by Melbourne IVF nor has he been credentialed at our day hospital.
All of the fertility specialists associated with Melbourne IVF and Virtus Health are fully qualified obstetrician and gynaecologists accredited with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and many of whom have undertaken the further sub specialty training of the Certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Virtus Health has extensive credentialing and accreditation processes in place to ensure the professional conduct of our doctors is of the highest standards.
All Australian fertility clinics are also accredited by the independent Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) and every 12 months the IVF units and their specialist doctors have their credentials, qualifications, continuing education and registrations assessed. Patients are advised to only ever seek fertility treatment in an RTAC accredited fertility unit.
