Our Amazing Doctors
The Holistic Medical Centre is proud to be a teaching practice. This means we support our Doctors to become Fellows of the Royal New Zealand College of GPs, fellowship being the highest level qualification. We also support our doctors in their ongoing learning of Integrative Lifestyle Medicine.
To ensure you have the best health outcome we promote a team approach. All of our doctors work closely together and in collaboration with our Naturopaths. They consult with each other and may refer to the Naturopaths for a specific purpose or for their expertise in a specific area.
