Dr. Marie Burke

Originally from the UK, I came to New Zealand in 1997.
I have been a GP for over 20 years and I also have interests in Medical Education, Youth Health and Forensic Medicine.
I relax by reading, gardening, walking, watching films and cycling to work (yes  – even in East Christchurch!)

Dr. Phil Frost

Following the purchase of Dr John Bird’s practice in Pages Road in 1990, my wife Shelley and I founded Aranui Medical Practice, which later was relocated and renamed as EastCare Health and expended over the years to the great team we have today.

I have enjoyed serving the community of Aranui for the past 25 years and particularly value the diversity of patients, with its mix of the very young and those more senior. Having those relationships with people and their families over time is one of the aspects of general practice I find most rewarding.

Over the years I have undertaken further extensive training in appearance medicine, which appeals to my more artistic side, and I carry this out form my other practice, Face Value. I have Fellowships with both the Royal College of General Practitioners and the NZ Society of Cosmetic Medicine.

Outside of my General Practice life, I enjoy time with my wife Shelley who now holds a number of national health leadership roles, and my special friend Walter the bulldog. Our two children are now young adults , Taylor living in London and Paris in Wellington.
