Dr Adrian Wenck  | Sedationist | Clinic 66 | Chatswood

As the sole male in my family (even the dog is a girl!), I feel I can claim a certain empathy with my female patients; I aim to treat every woman as I would want my own wife or daughters to be treated if they were in the same situation. And for those men considering a vasectomy at Clinic 66 – been there, done that too!

The purpose of the anaesthetic doctor is to ensure a person’s time at the clinic is comfortable and worry free. More than just administering medications, this also involves setting your mind at ease by listening to your concerns, demystifying the process with careful explanation and assuring you of a safe and as pleasant an experience as possible.


I have been a doctor for over 30 years and I have concentrated in the area of providing anesthetic services in the field of reproductive and women’s health for over 25 years. 


As well as training in major metropolitan hospitals, I spent significant time working in regional areas. This included working for a number of small base hospitals, which has given me intensive experience in a wide range of medical situations and emergencies.


This training was followed with invaluable time in General Practice which helped me to develop a broader understanding of medicine (as well as a good bedside manner). I earned my fellowship to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 1993, then soon after found my true calling in anaesthesia.

Over the ensuing years I have provided anaesthetic services for many day surgeries and clinics throughout Queensland and New South Wales.

As time passes, I find that in addition to technical competence, I have developed a greater empathy and understanding of the emotional concerns of my patients.
I'm passionate about helping my patients to feel more comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation.
