Dr. Prabani Wood
BA(Oxford), BMBCh(Oxford), MPH (1st Class Honours Auckland), FRNZCGP
I was born in Sri Lanka but grew up in the UK. My medical degree is from Oxford University. I moved to New Zealand in 2005 with my husband, Andrew, an ENT surgeon at Waikato Hospital. I have a wide range of postgraduate medical experience and also a Masters in Public Health from the University of Auckland. I have two children and we have been proud Waikato residents since 2012.
Special interests: all aspects of general practice but particularly preventative health, women's health and chronic disease management.
I am passionate about providing the best possible care for my patients and I think it is my role as a GP to not only look after people when they are unwell, but also to support them to optimize their health and wellbeing.
