Dr Elaine Pooler
MB BS 1992 Lond; FRNZCGP 2014
I qualified from St.George’s Hospital Medical School, London, in 1992. Emigrated to New Zealand in 1993, initially spending several years in Auckland and Invercargill, before settling in Tauranga in 2001. Since then I have worked, enjoying patient-centred family practice, at Te Puke Medical Centre.
Outside of work, I enjoy time spent with my partner and 2 young sons on beach walks, cycling and kayaking; trying to keep the garden under control and beat the bugs to the fruit and veg.
