Dr Fiona Gordon

I am a GP with many years of experience, much of it in the local area.
I love my work and thoroughly enjoy seeing a huge variety of people in a relationship centred style of medicine.
I remain constantly aware of the privilege of sharing peoples lives. There are not many other jobs where you are able to walk beside people through all of life’s challenges, be they joyous or difficult.
Over the years I have seen many ‘gaps’ in the provision of really good medicine and this clinic is an attempt to directly address some of these. It also hopes to model a positive and happy work environment for all the awesome people who work in it.
In my non medical life I walk my beloved dog, swim, read, laugh, have a regular yoga practice, eat lots of veges and marvel at the continued patience and love of my man.

Yes (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.
