Dr Rebekah Thompson

MBChB, FRNZCGP, Post Grad Cert Allergic Disease 

Kia ora, I'm Doctor Rebekah Thompson.

Since 2017 I've been treating patients who suffer from a wide variety of allergy related issues.

Born in Dannevirke, I studied at Otago University have lived and practiced medicine in Auckland since 2007. I am a Mum of two wonderful tamariki, a GP with Allergy training and a member of the New Zealand Paediatric Allergy Network.

In my spare time, I enjoy paddle boarding, trail running and spending time with my loved ones, including my pooch.

What we do

Allergy Treatment Plans

Understanding what causes your symptoms leads to better understanding of what treatments work best. Dr Rebekah will tailor the treatments to suit your lifestyle wherever possible.

Asthma Testing (Spirometry)

Did you know you can test to see if your symptoms really are asthma? Get expert interpretation and a management plan to suit your needs.

Diagnostic and Skin Prick Testing

Skin prick testing is more than just a result. You need expert interpretation of that result to get an accurate diagnosis. We have many tests that you can't obtain at the community laboratory including tree nuts, and the ability to test fresh fruits and seafood.

Desensitisation Treatment (Immunotherapy)

Losing your allergy symptoms is often a life changing experience. Many patients stop having to use regular treatments whilst on the immunotherapy and feel so much better. Once you have completed a course the benefits last for up to 20 years. The symptoms of asthma and hayfever lessen and even sometimes eczema. You can have access to this treatment locally with an experienced Allergist.
