Welcome to Dr. Alia Al-Beer
Nov. 6, 2021
We are delighted to welcome our new full-time GP, Dr Alia Al-Beer. She is a very experienced GP who we have been lucky to recruit. She is looking forward to meeting you. At the moment she is looking after the patients of Dr Heidi MacRae.
Alia graduated from the School of Medicine in Baghdad University, specialising in Anaesthesia. She and her family made New Zealand their home when they immigrated in 1996. Alia has worked in many healthcare settings, including front-line hospitals treating military casualties, surgical services in Amman, Jordan and public hospitals in England.
Alia's passion for patient care started when she explored holistic and complementary medicine through studying acupuncture and travelling to China to further her education. During her time in England, her desire to provide quality patient care grew so she changed her speciality to General Practice and brought her knowledge and experience back to New Zealand in 2008. She continues to share her knowledge with medical students and General Practice trainees.
Alia speaks Arabic and English, and loves working with patients from different age groups, cultures, and economic backgrounds. She is interested in all aspects of General Practice, including family planning and chronic disease management like diabetes, gout, and hypertension.
Alia is a mother of three and a grandmother of three beautiful, sometimes mischievous, grandchildren. She lives in Auckland's North Shore, where she enjoys nature's serenity, photography, and time with her family and friends.
