Originally from Malaysia, Marcus graduated from the University of Auckland’s School of Medicine in 2006. He worked for 3 years in varied specialties as a house surgeon at both Auckland & Waitemata DHBs. Subsequently, he also received training as a Surgical Pathology Registrar at Medlab Central in Palmerston North Hospital between 2009 – 2010.
He then worked at several private Accident & Emergency centres around Auckland, prior to commencing vocational general practice training at the beginning of 2011, and attained Fellowship of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners in 2014.
Outside his general practice consultation times, Marcus also pioneered sleep clinics at Silverdale and Millwater medical centres, while pursuing his Master of Sleep Medicine from The University of Sydney. He has also completed training from SleepGP Australia in nasopharyngeal endoscopic assessment of obstructive sleep apnoea(OSA).Marcus is a member of the ASA (Australian Sleep Association). His vision for the sleep clinic is to provide comprehensive and evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with sleep problems ranging from insomnia, restless leg syndrome to snoring & OSA, in primary care.
Marcus believes primary care is like an individualized “wellbeing contract” between the patient and his/her GP, through mutual agreement, understanding and working together towards achieving the same goal, and ultimately, the best outcome for the patient.
Besides English, he is also well versed in both Mandarin and Cantonese, hence can cater for the needs of the community requiring this service.
Marcus is happily married to his wife Vanessa and they have two young children; a daughter and a son. His family lives locally in Orewa.
In his spare time, he enjoys having walks with his family and 2 dogs, having a day out at the beach and is a keen person for board and PC games. He also keeps active playing badminton and loves snowboarding.
