Marcus Hawkins

Biographical Info I graduated from Nottingham University (UK) in 1986. Inspired by a love of travel I came to work in New Zealand for a year. I liked the country so much I stayed. I also married a Kiwi. I worked for 6 years in the Auckland hospitals, including several years as a Senior Registrar in General Medicine & Critical Care Medicine. I then decided to follow a career in General Practice. I worked as a locum General Practitioner Auckland & in Accident & Medical Clinics for several years. I then bought a practice in Botany Town Centre in Auckland & have since been running a solo-practice for the last 11 years. The practice has won Practice of the Year twice, under two different Primary Health Organisations. I have been involved in teaching medical students in the practice & I am an active member of our local Clinical General Practice Advisory Group. In addition, I was the initial proponent of our local Clinical Symposium, a biannual event for medical, nursing & administration staff in our practices. Since first seeing 'the Magic Pill' on Netflix & then doing my own research (literature & books - in particular, The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz) I have become a passionate advocate the LCHF Keto Diet. I believe that it is the best diet for humankind, based on the research that is available to us thus far. I like to be approachable, listening, compassionate & attentive, working for the best interests of my patients. I believe communication is the key to providing good health care & encourage my patients to talk with me if they have any concerns. My interests include my family, BBQ's/cooking, sailing, photography, music & finding out about different cultures.
