We are delighted to introduce Tara... in training for a career as a guide dog! She can be found close to our receptionist Linda. We think Tara can be the MMC mascot, at least for the time being. Tara is full of unconditional love that she is willing to bestow on anyone in need, so we are hoping for some positive health outcomes...
We are very pleased to welcome a GP registrar back into our practice. We have been a teaching practice for the College of GPs since 1981, and we are looking to expand our commitment to teaching of nurses and doctors as space allows. The future of our health system is dependent on nurturing a skilled, well-trained workforce committed to primary health care. Dr Anita Naik completed her basic medical training in India. She moved to New Zealand with her family in 2009 and requalified to work as a doctor here. Since then, she has worked in various hospitals in Waitemata, Auckland, Lakes and Waikato DHBs. After having gained experience as a Registrar in Psychiatry in Waitemata and Auckland for two years she chose to begin her training in General Practice in Dec 2014. She is currently a GP Registrar at Mairangi Medical Centre having completed her first six months at ‘Health New Lynn General Practice’.
