About Remuera Village Medical Centre

Located in Remuera Village for 55 Years.

Located in Remuera Village for 55 years, our team of dedicated doctors have been caring for the community since 1960.

Following extensive renovations in 2008, the clinic now has excellent facilities that provide a platform for modern medical care, while retaining its community and family flavour. We pride ourselves on the ability to provide accessible medical care with extended hours of operation. We understand that illnesses do not always occur during normal 9-5 working hours. Our staff know and understand our patients, so they can rest assured that their needs will be met, even when their registered Doctor is not present.

I enjoy the diversity of general practice and I appreciate the bond that I have developed with many families over the years since coming to RVMC.  I am a passionate advocate for women’s and children’s health, however at the same time, I like all aspects of general medicine.  For some years now I have been an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Auckland Medical School and I enjoy being involved in the education of medical students.  I have two children and enjoy spending time with my family.

After practicing in Croatia, I immigrated to New Zealand 14 years ago with my family.  I have been practicing around the greater Auckland area.  Family care and well being is my priority.  I enjoy being a member of the team at RVMC and being involved in the community.

I enjoy all aspects of general practice working with both patients and their families to be able to provide the best possible healthcare outcomes.  I have a special interest in children’s health, women’s health and managing chronic conditions.  Prior to entering medicine, I completed a BSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science and Psychology and worked at the Auckland University Exercise and Rehabilitation Clinic.  I graduated from Otago Medical School in 2012, and after working at Auckland hospitals, I begun working in General Practice in South Auckland prior to joining RVMC.  I live locally with my daughter and enjoy spending time with family and friends.

I am excited to have joined the team at Remuera Village Medical Centre recently, which serves the community where I grew up after coming to New Zealand from Hong Kong.  After spending 6 years in the UK and Germany with the British Army I decided to study medicine, completing my degree in 2017.  Since then, I have been working in hospitals across the Auckland area and chose General Practice for the incredibly varied nature of the role.  My wife Rachel and I are expecting our first child soon.

Hello, I am Louisa and have worked as a nurse here at RVMC for almost 20 years.  Previously I worked in the emergency department at Auckland Hospital.  I have 4 grown up children and 3 grandchildren.  I was taught in my nursing training that the nurse is the patients advocate and I try to practice this in my work here.

Practice Administrator

I enjoy the dynamic environment that general practice has to offer, where no day is the same. I joined RVMC in 2016 as a receptionist and since moved on to become the Practice Administrator, where I oversee reception and administration work. In my spare time you’ll find me with family, friends or my two dogs. My interests include music, film analysis and animal fancy.
