Even with the latest renovations to our practice, it’s still the people (your medical experts) that make health care personal for you. Below our doctors, share a little about themselves.
I joined City GPs as a partner in 2014 having working as a general practitioner in Wellington for the previous 10 years. I am interested in all aspects of general practice and finds this provides a very stimulating and rewarding career. Through competitive cycling I have developed an interest in nutrition, fitness and wellness which I enjoy sharing with patients where needed.
I am married with two young girls who keep me very busy outside of work.
MBCH, FRNZCGP, Dip Paediatrics
I am an experienced doctor having worked in hospitals in New Zealand and overseas before training in General Practice. I have enjoyed working as a GP in the Wellington region for the last seven years and have come from another group practice setting. Over this time I enjoyed developing patient relationships and being involved in the local community.
I completed my medical training at the University of Otago and also hold a Diploma in Paediatrics from the University of Auckland. My GP fellowship was completed in Wellington. Outside of work, I enjoy running and surfing, and spending time with my family.
MBBS, BSc (Hons), MRCP (UK), FRNZCGP
I trained as a hospital physician in London and worked predominately in emergency and general medicine. More recently, I've worked in emergency medicine in Australia, oncology at Wellington Hospital and enjoyed shifts as a rural doctor in the beautiful South Island.
I have a particular interest in oncology, nutrition and metabolic health (diabetes, obesity etc.), which my scientific (biochemistry) background supports.
I love spending time with my young family, getting outdoors, climbing Mt. Kaukau and reading. I now consider Wellington my home and have fully embraced the Kiwi lifestyle; especially my new Weber BBQ!
MBChB, BSc, BNurs
I’m a parent of an adult daughter and have a small fluffy dog. I worked as a nurse before retraining as a doctor. I have interest and experience in youth health, older adult health, and travel medicine, and I enjoy the huge variety and satisfaction of working in general practice. I believe in working in partnership with patients to achieve their best health while respecting their priorities and values. In my spare time I like to travel to new and interesting places, go tramping in the NZ wilderness, and I try to keep fit by doing Crossfit.
After graduating from Otago Medical School, I spent a few years travelling overseas and working in a variety of medical specialities until deciding on General Practice. I completed the training programme for this in New Zealand and have been enjoying the diversity and complex nature of general practice at City GPs since then.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family in the outdoors doing activities such as skiing and tramping.
MBChB, Dip.Obst, FRNZCGP
Originally from Germany, I attended medical school in Köln (Cologne) and arrived in NZ in 1989. I was a House surgeon/Senior House officer in both Nelson and Wellington, started with City GPs in 2007. In my spare time I am an ardent tramper and lover of the outdoors.
Lic. Med. M.D.
I am from Finland and have been living in beautiful New Zealand for the past four years. I undertook my medical degree at the University of Tartu in Estonia. In general practice I especially enjoy that I get to meet people from 0-110 years of age and am privileged to walk together with my patients in their health journey. I am a big fan of skiing, books and dancing and love the great outdoors.
I graduated in 2008 and after initially training in anaesthetics and intensive care I switched to General Practice in 2015 and I’ve never looked back.
I was a GP in Manchester, UK for 5 years before making the move to New Zealand in 2022. I have areas of interest in sports and exercise, men’s health and elderly care including dementia.
Outside of work you will generally find me playing sport, eating food, spending time with friends or travelling the world.
I studied medicine at the University of Otago and also have a degree in Neuroscience. Having initially started training in hospital medicine, I decided to move into General Practice as I wanted to know my patients in the context of their lives. I have particularly enjoyed the variety of medicine and working with patients to address their concerns and move forward together to optimise their health and wellbeing.
Outside of work, you’ll find me chasing after my toddler and enjoying Wellington’s best coffee.
