Dr Jens-Peter Link
Dr.Med (Germany), FRNZCGP
My name is Jens-Peter Link and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and your family.
I am a German trained GP and have immigrated to New Zealand with my wife and daughter in 2007.Following my medical studies I undertook extensive training and work in Germany in a variety of medical fields. In order to gain the best and widest possible qualification for becoming a GP ( Hausarzt/Allgemeinmediziner), I worked in General Medicine, Internal Medicine, Rheumatology, Diabetelogy, General Surgery, Trauma Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery, Psychiatry and General Practice. Following our immigration to New Zealand I initially worked as a Doctor in Hawera Hospital for some years. During this time I looked after General Medical Inpatients (including Geriatric Medicine, Palliative Care) as well as Patients in the Emergency Department.
Since then I have gained New Zealand GP qualification by becoming a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners ( FRNZCGP) some years ago. For the past 5 years I have worked as a full time rural GP on Waiheke Island. I am passionate about General Practice/Family Medicine and look forward to care for patients in a personal, caring and trustful environment for many years to come.
I hope to be able to continue and create long standing patient-doctor relationships, which will enable me to treat, advise and guide patients through the complete spectrum of healthcare needs in their lives.
I strongly believe in a team approach as well as a holistic approach to wellbeing and enjoy to cooperate and interact with the wide spectrum of healthcare providers in the community.
I am happy to see casual patients as well as to enroll new patients. Nurse Sandra Hughes my nurse.
My special interests are General/Internal Medicine, Older People Health, Chronic Care Management, Diabetes Management, Nutritional Medicine, Clinician Performed Ultrasound, Ear Acupuncture and I love to look after children.
