Dr Nagoor was born in Durban, South Africa, and studied medicine at the University of Natal. He comes to us with an extensive medical background from working as a registrar in general surgery, to a registrar in cardiothoracic surgery, to commissioning a new hospital in Durban at the request of the local government.
Dr Nagoor has also worked as a medical adviser on the mines, and later for a major funding company. He moved to New Zealand in 2003 and has been working as a GP in Levin and Foxton.
He moved to Invercargill last week to start his new role here at He Puna Waiora and is enjoying it already. He is looking forward to seeing more of the South Island, he says.
Dr Nagoor has a keen interest in natural healing, enjoys reading and playing golf.
