Dr Monirul Islam
I graduated in 1990 from Chittagong Medical College in Bangladesh. After finishing my internship in 1991, I worked in a diabetes Hospital, under 5 Clinic and gathered some experience in Ophthalmology before migrating to New Zealand in 1995.
I started my General Practice career in 1999 at Whitianga. After enjoying my rural general practice for over 4 years, I moved to Auckland in 2003 which is where I became a Fellow of Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners in 2006. I also ventured into Cosmetic Medicine for 10 years since 2006 side by side my General Practice and had earned the Fellowship of New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine.
I owned my practice in Te Atatu South and served that community for 12 years. I then took over Dr Paul Trotman’s Practice in 2016 at Maungakiekie Clinic. I have a special interest in Skin Cancer and its treatment and enjoy the Dermatoscopy skill and Minor Surgery. I am married to Dr Neela Ahmed, and we have 3 daughters.
