Doctor of the Month - Russell Eggleton

We have great news that our former registrar, Dr Russell Eggleton will be back at Crawford Medical by mid-December.

On his return, Dr Russell will work in all areas of general practice and he is hoping gain further hands-on experience conducting some of the minor surgeries performed at Crawford Medical.

“Also, I really enjoy paediatrics,” says Dr Russell.

“Healthy kids are fun and with sick kids, it’s nice to see them getting better and seeing the whole family together.”

Dr Russell studied at the University of Otago, and he knows Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions well.

He and his wife have moved into a new home and they spend much of their free time on DIY projects.

When there is any time left over, you’ll find Dr Russell active in numerous sports from beach volleyball to tennis and golf.
