Sonal works in close association with Dr Derek Lok, who is a senior Gynecologist and Fertility Specialist. He obtained his medical degrees in Hong Kong in 1990 and completed his PhD research in feto-maternal medicine at University of Adelaide in 1994.
Following this, he undertook specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Sydney and Adelaide and then sub-specialist training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) in Adelaide and the United Kingdom.
