About Me

Mirte joined us, along with her husband Matt, in November 2020.

She had been working in Taumarunui for 1.5 years, and returned home to the Netherlands for a year before deciding they would return to make NZ home for good!

Mirte is a fantastic GP, with a very caring and thorough approach. She graduated in 2011 as a doctor in the Netherlands. She then did some work in obstetrics and gynaecology before starting her vocational training to becoming a GP in 2017.

She has special skills in elderly care. However, she enjoys all aspects of general practice, and is very good with children (having 4 of her own!).

In her spare time she enjoys the outdoors and travelling with her family to explore our beautiful country.

She looks forward to meeting you, and helping you on your health journey. Mirte will be taking over half of Dr Harry Faulls’s patients, as well as taking on new patients. Please call if you would like to be registered with her.
