I have been in General Practice in Auckland for the past 24 years. Born in Tanzania, grew up in Uganda and I did my medicine in Punjab, India. I came to New Zealand in 1978 and worked at the Waikato Hospital for 6 years: initially as an intern and then registrar.
I moved to Auckland in 1984 and have been in the city in General Practice since. I owned my own practice in K'Road for a while before leaving for a 2 year OE.
I came back to NZ in 1992 and started working in Accident Medical clinics and then moving into General Practice Locum work.
I have worked in parts of Africa, India, Australia and New Zealand. I started working as a locum with CityMed in late 2005 and have now joined the team as a full time Director.
