Dr Ventzi Bonev, Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist


After practicing as a Consultant Neurologist in South Africa for seven years, Ventzi joined Corbett Neurophysiology Services full-time in 2007. As an Overseas Trained Physician, he was initially required to undergo peer-review evaluation jointly at the Gold Coast University Hospital and with Professor John Corbett, the founder of Corbett Neurophysiology. Since 2011, Ventzi has sub-specialised exclusively in neurophysiology, and has provided consultations, examinations and detailed clinical neurophysiology examinations and reports (NCS, EMG and EEG) on many thousands of patients.

Late in 2021, after a long and successful career as a Specialist Neurologist, Professor John Corbett decided at the age of 81 to “take his shingle down” and begin his well-earned retirement. Ventzi took over the practice, which will continue to provide specialised neurophysiology services and renamed the practice “Coastal Neurophysiology”. The clinic is moving just down the road to 8 Rawlins Street, Southport. Ventzi continues to be assisted by Corbett Neurophysiology Services’ highly experienced staff, including a neuroscientist with over 20 years’ experience. We anticipate a seamless transition with our phone and fax numbers remaining the same.

Ventzi lives on the Gold Coast with his family and consults in Southport. In the process of assessing some thousands of patients during the past fourteen years, he has formed close professional relationships with colleagues and referrers throughout South East Queensland. He intends to maintain this association for the remainder of his professional career, in parallel with maintaining his exclusive sub-specialty focus on neurophysiology.
