About our clinic

Titirangi Medical Centre clinic is a family focused medical practice, commited to offering the highest level of healthcare. We care about our patients and are honoured to be able to look after many generations of West Auckland families. We have achieved Foundation Accreditation, meaning we have met and maintained a standard of care set by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. We are affiliated with Procare, which enables us to offer our patients 24 hours access to healthcare. A registered nurse answers the phone after hours.

All our doctors have many years of experience both as a General Practitioner and within the hospital system. Most have specialised in General Practice and have achieved or are working towards a Fellowship in General Practice from the Royal New Zealand College of General Practice (FRNZCGP).

Our History

Titirangi Medical Centre was founded by Dr Robert Lusk in 1950. It was initially based in New Lynn and was a group practice of 4 doctors (including Dr Jacobsen and Dr Smith). In the 1960s, it moved next door to the Titirangi Post Office before relocating in 1981 to 2 Rangiwai Road, where it is located today. It is in fact a converted patient's home!

Over the many years, Titirangi Medical Centre has been a pillar in the vibrant Titirangi Community. It has taken care of many generations of West Auckland families and seen many a chicken roam the street. There has been a total of 13 partners.
