Dr Chris Maud
I have lived on the North Shore 32 years with the privilege of attending patients and families of all ages growing in charming, successful ways, and our seniors taking on healthy, increasing doses of longevity; all so amazing. I have three adult children who have attended our local schools. Leisure is to be promoted. Inshore fishing is a pastime I enjoy along with family holidays and get togethers. My experience is in the full range of family GP services. Apart from active treatment care high priority are preventative health measures.
Dr Luke Ivancevic
I joined Dodson Medical in May 2004, my family and I moved to New Zealand from Yugoslavia in 1995 and live locally. I completed my General Practice training in Auckland in 2002. I am experienced in all aspects of General Practice, including children's health, men's and women's health, as well as preventative healthcare and chronic disease management. I have a special interest in skin cancer treatment, and tongue tie procedures. I strongly believe that best medical care in the long term is from a doctor who knows you, your past medical history and family history. Good doctor-patient relationships facilitate implementation of preventative health strategies as well as the management of acute medical problems, which is important for long term health.

(MBBS DCH DRCOG MRCGP RNZCGP)
I studied medicine at St Georges Hospital in London and came to New Zealand on an OE in 1991 and met my Kiwi husband to be at that time. I have been working on the North Shore since 2005, previously in Devonport. I became a partner at Dodson Medical in 2010. My special interests are paediatrics and child health, early pregnancy care and advice, gynaecology, and women's health. I am a member of the Australasian Menopause Society and have been driving to get more balanced information out online and in to the media regarding HRT treatments. While working in Milford I have developed an interest in Care of the Elderly, doing 2 clinics per week at Poynton. I have also up skilled in dermatology and the management of skin lesions - performing minor surgery regularly in-house in our Surgical Procedures Suite. What I enjoy most about general practice is getting to know people over time and the challenges of explaining new treatments and concepts in a balanced way to help patients make informed decisions on their care.
Dr Paul Stoddart
I am an Aucklander, growing up in Kohimarama. I studied medicine at Otago, with a special interest in Obstetrics. After graduating I opened a practice in Mairangi Bay where I practiced for 6 years, until I departed for Europe and the UK where I settled for 10 years. I met my wife in the UK and started our family we have two children a daughter and a son. In 2010 we decided to return to New Zealand. I joined Dodson Medical January 2011 and became a partner in 2012. My medical interests are children’s health, obstetrics, preventative medicine and Corporate health medicals. Dodson Medical is a family orientated practice, which was a great incentive for me to join this long established practice.
Dr Antje Bongartz
I graduated from Heinrich-Heine University in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1991 and have completed a vocational education in General Practice/Internal Medicine in Cologne. Over the past 20 years, I have worked in Hospitals and General Practices with experience in Oncology, Nephrology, Rheumatology, Angiology and Psychosomatic.
In 2011 I came to New Zealand together with my family and worked at Family Doctors @ Smales for 8 years until my change to Dodson Medical Centre.
I enjoy all aspects of general medicine. It is a great privilege to be part of the well-being of so many individuals and families over the years. I appreciate the opportunities to initiate positive changes in the life of my patients. Being part of this is very rewarding.
To meet the needs of the intense sun exposure of our country, I have completed a Certificate in Skin Cancer Dermoscopy and Surgery in 2013.
In 2014 I started a postgraduate study with the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine to be able to offer an integrative approach of treatment for all interested patients. This means first and foremost to look at lifestyle and nutrition as a possible cause and treatment for a disease.
It also incorporates treatment with bio-identical hormones and IV Vit C for certain needs.
Apart from being a GP I enjoy living locally on the Shore with my family and like to do Pilates, Yoga, Jogging, Reading and Cooking.
