Dr John Gordon

General Practitioner


MB ChB 1991 Manc; FRNZCGP 2013


John trained in the UK (St Andrews and Manchester), qualifying in 1991.  He worked in NZ as a junior doctor from 1993 – 1995 (including 3 months as a House Surgeon at Masterton Hospital). 

He returned to Scotland to complete his GP training and, after a brief spell working in rural South Africa, he was a partner in a large GP practice just outside Edinburgh, until the end of 2011. 

He enjoys the wide variety that comes when working in general practice, and has a special interest in dementia.  He brings to NZ a wife and 4 children, and loves almost any sport.  He is never happier than when whacking a tennis ball or strumming a few tunes on his guitar.
