Dr Eric Dy MBBChBAO(Univ. College Cork, Ireland)BMedSci.
BSc. Biology(University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)
I was born in New York City and raised in Ohio, the eldest of six children.
I started off in clinical research (Dept. of Anesthesiology) at the University of Michigan after completing a degree in Biology. A few years on, I moved to Ireland to study medicine and enjoy a new perspective living outside the United States. I lived and worked as a doctor in Ireland for seven years before moving to New Zealand in 2007.
I arrived in Christchurch and worked for the first five years at Christchurch Public Hospital in a variety of house officer roles initially, and later joined the anaesthetics training scheme for several years. Eventually, I came to work in the Hyperbaric Medicine Unit at Christchurch Hospital (where I continue to work one day a week) and consequently was introduced to General Practice in 2012. Since then I have come to appreciate the great privilege of being in long term relationships with patients and the variety of challenges that working as a General Practitioner provides.
I have three young children (including twin boys). My wife is a doctor in the Ear Nose and Throat Department at Christchurch Public Hospital.
Lisa trained in Christchurch and has been Practice Nursing for over twenty years in various settings.
Lisa enjoys all aspects of Practice Nursing, but has a special interest in child health having completed a degree in Well Child Health and worked as a Plunket Nurse for five years.
I have recently moved from Manawatu region to Canterbury, with my husband and two children.
I have enjoyed working the first 12 years of my nursing career in Palmerston North hospital and have a broad range of experience including Emergency Nursing, Infection Prevention and Control, Clinical Teaching and District Nursing.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the gym, bush walks and reading.
