Dr Paul Bennett
B.Sc., MB., Ch.B., Dip.Obst, FRNZCGP
I was born and raised in Hastings and came down to Otago
University in 1971. I completed a degree in biochemistry and
then graduated with my medical degree in 1978.
That year I moved to work at the Palmerston
North Hospital. I returned to Dunedin to undertake a Diploma
in Obstetrics and subsequently joined Dr's Chin and Williams in
their Cargill House Practice in December 1980.
Obstetrics was a large component of my practice
for many years. In December 2000 I ceased obstetrics, 20
years to the day I started in private practice.
As well as general practice, I have undertaken
minor surgery and have extended this interest over the years.
I also have a special interest in Men's Health.
My wife Cheryl and I enjoy gardening;
especially the roses and rhododendrons.
Between us we have five adult daughters who are
scattered about the planet.
I also love to get into the kitchen and cook,
and have an enthusiastic interest in wine appreciation!
