Dr Carlos Fuentes

General Practitioner


MD 1996 Spain


Ever since I’ve been in my 20s, I have always dreamed of making New Zealand my home.

I came to visit in April 2018 and I fell in love with this country’s natural beauty, multiculturalism, and care for the environment. My trip gave me the final push to”cross the pond” and solidified my decision to take this adventure of a life time.

I did my training at Baylor college of medicine at the prestigious Methodist Hospital in Houston Texas.

My areas of expertise are management of chronic illness; diabetes, asthma, allergies, COPD, Hypertension, skin disorders, heart failure, kidney disease and geriatric care.

I develop excellent rapport with my patients and consultants. I treat my patients with respect and compassionate care.

I have adopted New Zealand as my home and enjoy taking care of my patients due to the diversity and multiple backgrounds that we can find in New Zealand.

I enjoy spending time with my wife, three children and dog. I love to go outdoors and enjoy the mountains and bike on the weekends. I love cooking, watching movies, and inviting friends to taste my new recipes. In my spare time I am learning to play the guitar and enjoy learning new languages.

Languages Spoken: English & Spanish



Vocationally Registered

No (What's this?)

The term "vocational registration" indicates that this doctor has done some additional years of further study and has passed comprehensive examinations set by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. In addition to these examinations she/he has committed to an ongoing programme of study to keep up to date with the advances in general practice. His/her participation in this study programme is audited. Passing the examinations and the commitment to the study programme confers on this doctor the status of "specialist" in general practice, and is your assurance that this doctor is practicing to a high standard.

Doctors who are not vocationally registered can currently work in general practice as long as they are under the supervision of a vocationally registered general practitioner. The Medical Council of New Zealand would like all doctors who work in general practice to attain vocational registration and many doctors who are not vocationally registered are currently working towards achieving this qualification.
