Dr Elizabeth Chesterfield

I am a vocationally registered General Practitioner. I trained at Auckland University and chose to go into general practice as I really enjoy forming long term relationships with my patients and providing healthcare in a wider context. My work encompasses all areas of general practice, including minor surgery, IUCD/Mirena insertion. Paediatrics is a favourite area. I have three young adult children, two of them are still living at home. Outside of work I enjoy bushwalking, gardening and handicrafts.
