Dr Prabani Wood - GP/Director

BA(Oxford), BMBCh(Oxford), MPH (1st Class Hon, Auck), FRNZCGP

I was born in Sri Lanka but grew up in the UK, graduating with my medical degree 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, as well as a Master’s in Public Health from the University of Auckland. I have two children, and as a family we have been proud Waikato residents since 2012.

I enjoy 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 make lifestyle choices to optimise their health and wellbeing.

Dr Luisa Arias - GP/Director

MBChB, FRNZCGP

Originally from Colombia, I did my medical training in its capital, Bogota. After graduating, I worked in Colombia as a GP for four years before moving to New Zealand in 2006, where I trained in General Medicine at both Taranaki Base Hospital and Waikato Hospital. I have been working in general practice for the last five years and became a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners in July 2017. 

I am married to a New Zealander and have one child. We have been proud Waikato residents for the last seven years and we love it here.

I have a special interest in adult medicine and chronic long-term conditions. I believe having a trustful and respectful relationship with my patients is very important. Every day I work to provide the best possible care for my patients.

Dr Jamie Ioane - GP

MBChB (Auckland) PGDipSci, BSc (Otago)

Born and raised in Christchurch, I completed a Bachelor of Science and a Postgraduate Diploma in Anatomy and Neuroscience at Otago University, before attending Auckland University for medical school.  I worked in New Plymouth as a house officer and then became the Psychiatry registrar for the region. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working in Wellington, Porirua and Lower Hutt hospitals before making the move to Waikato hospital where I worked as a locum. 

I am particularly interested in old-age mental health, neurodegenerative disorders, dementia, and the use of health technology. I live with my partner in Hamilton, a palliative care nurse, and in my spare time I enjoy playing guitar, paddle boarding and surfing. 

Every patient comes to us with their own unique set of needs.  My goal is to help patients reach their potential for the best outcomes possible.

Dr Kit Lun Wang “Kit” - GP

MBChB (Auckland), BSc (Otago)      

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Auckland, I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Nutrition before obtaining my medical degree from the University of Auckland. I spent my internship years training in Auckland and moved on to work in various hospitals around the North Island. I have recently returned from two years of working in mental health in Australia, and I am excited about returning to New Zealand to work in general practice.

Outside of my professional role, I enjoy playing my guitar, practising tai-chi and yoga, and I have an avid interest in free-diving (usually during the summer!).

I like to take a holistic approach towards medicine and consider myself a passionate advocate of healthy living. I believe that diet, lifestyle, exercise, and frame of mind in conjunction with the practice of sound medicine all play a tremendous role in disease prevention and the optimisation of health and wellbeing

Tiffany Hodgson - Physician Associate

A Physician Associate from Alaska, I relocated to New Zealand in 2010 after completing my medical training at Loma Linda University in California. For the past decade I have enjoyed working in the Waikato in General Practice and Urgent Care.

I love living in the Cambridge area with my husband and two girls, and enjoys spending my free time outdoors. I have special interests in children’s health, urgent care, dermatology and whole-person care.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science, a Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies and I am board-certified through the NCCPA in the United States. I am also one of the pioneers of my profession in New Zealand, and continue to work with the Ministry of Health and the NZPA society to gain registration for Physician Associates in NZ. 

N.B. as New Zealand is in the early stages of registering PAs as a medical profession, there are limitations on their scope of practice. All PAs’ work at Cambridge Family Health is checked and signed off by a GP.

Carla Mitchell-Davidson - Practice Manager

I was born and raised in Cambridge and returned here after living overseas for 15 years. I have been working at Cambridge Family Health since it opened in 2015.

I started as a receptionist and a few years later decided I wanted to further my skills so I studied to become a Primary Care Practice Assistant. This role was very fulfilling and I particularly enjoyed the patient care it involved and assisting the Doctors and Nurses. Recently, I stepped away from that role and became Practice Manager. I am looking forward to continuing to deliver a high standard of customer service and working alongside the amazing staff we have.  

My husband I have three boys who keep us very busy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and love watching my children play sport.
