Our Doctors


A Doctor that has trained and committed long term to being a quality General Practitioner will have previously worked in the Hospital system for a number of years, then spent a minimum of three years (and usually more) in specialty training to eventually become a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (FRNZCGP). All our doctors have either achieved this, holding the qualification of FRNZCGP, or are well on their way to this goal
