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!
