Chamber Spotlight: Two new GP’s join the Raglan Medical Team

Kia ora! I am thrilled to be working in Raglan as a locum physician for 6 months.  What an amazing place!

I moved here with my family from British Columbia, Canada for a change of pace and for a chance to spend more time playing in the ocean.  We are loving Raglan and the vibrant kiwi culture.

As a new GP at the Raglan Medical, I am excited about joining the team; the clinic here is wonderful and the people are amazing.  

Back home, I work as a GP Anesthetist, and do a mix of hospital Anesthesia, Emergency medicine, and clinic GP work.  I enjoy a challenge and learning new things.  I trained in Canada and did my Family Practice and Anesthesia training through the University of British Columbia.  I most recently have lived in a rural ski town, and enjoy spending time in the mountains skiing and mountain biking.  I have also worked overseas in Peru and have previously locumed in Westport, New Zealand.

I am happy to be here in Aotearoa and look forward to providing high quality medical care to the patients of Raglan.  Please come and see me anytime!

Kia ora koutou! I’m delighted to have joined Raglan Medical as a permanent GP at the end of January. 

I grew up and studied medicine in Germany. At university I participated in multiple internships abroad, including Spain, Nepal and Namibia. This sparked my curiosity about new countries and cultures.

After finishing medical school, I moved to Zurich, Switzerland to pursue my specialisation in General Medicine. Luckily enough, that is where I met my husband who grew up in Hamilton and showed me around New Zealand on multiple vacations. Raglan was always a highlight!

 After gaining my specialist qualification in General Medicine and General Practice, we packed our bags and travelled through South America for one year. During this time I gained a broad knowledge about different cultures and people with different social backgrounds. 

Since settling down in Raglan I have worked at Waikato Hospital looking after patients in General Medicine and gaining more experience in the ED. My areas of interest are women’s health and paediatrics. 

I am looking forward to working in the community to provide high quality medical care and to improve my patients’ general health and wellbeing. My door and ears are always open for any concerns or problems.

 Ngā mihi, Rajka
