Cairns Neurophysiology | Our Team


Dr. Andrew McNabb MBBS FRACP

Reporting Neurologist - Nerve Conduction Studies & Electromyography

Dr Andrew McNabb joined Cairns Neurophysiology as a reporting Neurologist in 2012, after relocating to Cairns. He has a very strong patient focus and is proactive about professional development, attending many national and international conferences to keep up to date standards using recent, evidence based practice. He is a general neurologist with particular interest in neuromuscular conditions (NCS/EMG) and strokes. He played a fundamental part in advancing stroke services at Cairns Hospital, implementing new services. Dr McNabb understands educational importance for junior staff and dedicates many of his own hours to training junior doctors, running extra educational sessions for them and in the process was nominated and won the 2014 teachers award at Cairns Hospital.

Dr. Ian Wilson BSc MBBS FRACP

Reporting Neurologist- Electroencephalograms

Dr Ian Wilson joined Cairns Neurophysiology as a reporting Neurologist in 2015 having returned to Cairns after completing neurology training in Melbourne. He is a general neurologist with special interests in epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and neuro-ophthalmology. He completed a fellowship in epilepsy monitoring and the evaluation of patients for epilepsy surgery and has established an epilepsy clinic at Cairns Hospital. He has regular meetings with the Royal Brisbane Epilepsy Case Conference and has an ongoing relationship with the epilepsy surgical centers in Melbourne. He has extensive experience reporting prolonged EEG monitoring and has direct experience of the benefits of ambulatory EEG in the evaluation of epilepsy.


Holly Skye BMSc

Practice Manager & Neurophysiology Scientist Electroencephalogram and Nerve Conduction Studies.

Originally from Victoria, Holly relocated to Cairns in 2008 and commenced at Cairns Neurophysiology when it opened in 2009. She successfully completed her Bachelor of Medical Science through Charles Stuart University, Wagga Wagga. Understanding some of the angst that may be associated with medical conditions and appointments, she pays particular attention to the needs of each and every patient. She has implemented clinic strategies to keep patients and doctors well informed, from referral to report process, ensuring a relatively easy process. She takes time with patients to explain neurophysiology investigations during their appointment and offers expert advice where necessary. Throughout her career she has developed a strong interest and passion for neuromuscular disorders, attending national and international conferences. During her spare time she enjoys time out on the reef, and particularly enjoys diving.

Alyssa Tieppo

Neurophysiology Scientist

Alyssa joined the team in 2018 after graduating from a Bachelor of Biomedical Science, majoring in Human Physiology and Anatomy, at the Queensland University of Technology in 2016. After experiencing a seizure herself, Alyssa knew she was on the right path in becoming a neurophysiology scientist as she is able to understand some of the concern around the procedures of medical investigations. Alyssa enjoys attending regular conferences and aims to maintain a high standard of professional development. Her passion is all things brainwaves (EEGs), from infants through to the elderly. She lists her favourite test as ambulatory EEG monitoring. Alyssa is keen to extend her knowledge into neuromuscular testing.
