New faces at med centre
Matamata Medical Centre has been given a boost of two new doctors.
Dr Reuben Tomlinson and Dr Kelly Brennan have joined the practise, following the departure of Dr Craig Campbell.
Small towns and close-nit communities are right up Dr Reuben Tomlinson’s alley, so fitting into the Matamata community hasn’t been a problem.
Dr Tomlinson takes over from Dr Craig Campbell, who has left the Medical Centre after just over 12 years of service, and with winter keeping the doctors busy, his presence is certainly appreciated.
He has left his home of Wanaka to join the busy practice here in Matamata, and says he just loves small towns.
On top of general practice, Dr Tomlinson has a special interest in sports medicine and is currently completing a sports medicine diploma by correspondence through Otago University.
He is a yellow fever vaccinator, and also performs vasectomies.
Dr Tomlinson will be joining Dr Julie Jones three mornings per week at the Raungaiti Marae in Waharoa.
Joining Dr Tomlinson is Dr Kelly Brennan, a new face to many patients.
She has returned to the busy practice after a short time away on maternity leave.
Patients under Dr Campbell’s care will now be shared between Dr Brennan and the medical centre’s new doctor, Dr Reuben Tomlinson.
Dr Brennan has a special interest in child and adolescent health and palliative care.
She says she is very proud to be on staff at Matamata Medical Centre.
Matamata has a large, well supported and organised medical facility she says very few towns are lucky enough to have.
Dr Reuben Tomlinson recently joined the Matamata Medical Centre and Dr Kelly Brennan has returned from materity leave.
