About Dr Anil Sharma
Anil is a Specialist Surgical Gynaecologist and in Auckland. His expertise lies in the management of women's health problems.
Anil was brought up in London and educated in England. After his medical and surgical degrees he specialised in OBGYN with Memberships and then Fellowships of the UK and Aus / NZ Royal Colleges of OBGYN.
He moved to NZ permanently in 2001.
Anil thoroughly enjoys meeting and interacting with people. He is always keen to involve patients in their healthcare. He has focussed on Gynaecology for many years and sadly no longer undertakes maternity care. In his career, he has helped mums-to-be deliver over 5000 babies.
He has a keen interest in ethical practise and respect for patient's rights. He undertook a diploma in medical law at Cardiff University and is often asked to provide medico-legal opinions. He updates his practice and undertakes the Continuing Medical Education Programme (and certification) of the Royal ANZ College. He also gives postgraduate lectures to family doctors and nurses about Gynaecology and writes frequently for medical magazines and a research journal. Anil also enjoyed being the Women's Health Expert for TVNZ Good Morning and has written widely for a number of popular magazines.
Anil was honoured to be made a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (London) in 2008. This is conferred after sustained contributions to the vocation and the maintenance of high standards of practice.
He is married to a GP, Rachel and has three teenage daughters and a much-loved miniature Schnauzer Luis . His spare time is spent with the family and in the great NZ outdoors. He loves comedy, classic cars, modern design and architecture.
He is delighted that the practice is managed by Anne Whineray who is also a trained nurse and adept at all aspects of gynae health care management. We believe in kind empathic care. Anil's life experiences and training in medical practice have included Vascular Surgery, Urology, Renal medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Accident and Emergency, Elder Health, Orthopaedic Surgery, Psychiatry and of course the vast majority of it in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Anil has considerable surgical experience (30 years and counting) and performs a wide range of procedures having undertaken a traditional (and long) training programme in the UK (Leicester, Sheffield, Bath, Bristol, Poole, London, Taunton, Wrexham, Newport, Cardiff) and NZ (Wellington, Hamilton, Palmerston North).

Anil is the nicest Dr you could hope to see. He is caring and listens and doesn't make you feel stupid for concerns that you have. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr Anil Sharma was recommended by my doctor - and what a great recommendation it was. Both Anil and his nurse are friendly, engaging and professional. Anil communicates everything clearly, has time for his patients.... and gets the job done!
The rooms have great vintage decor too!
Dr Anil Sharma is incredible, and he is a wonderful surgeon. I really appreciate how he took his time to explain about advanced endometriosis and the treatment options. With his wealth of Knowledge and information, I immediately felt at ease – and felt assured in my receiving expert medical care from him. In addition, Anne his nurse is always very helpful and an email away. I had such a fear about going through this whole procedure as I have heard of many positive and negative feedback from others. Even, through my own experience I went to Dr Shrama for second opinion as my first surgeon delayed my surgery and she recommended that I take zoladex injection in the interim. I felt that it was a blessing in disguise that my surgery was postponed by my first surgeon or else I would have never found Dr Shrama. He discussed my condition with another specialist- Dr Rishi Ram who was amazing as well. Dr Sharma and Anne directed me right from pre-surgery, to recovery either at the hospital or at home. I am so glad I chose Dr Anil Sharma and his co surgeon Dr Rishi Ram and I would highly recommend to anyone.
Anil is a very kind-hearted person, who is attentive, listens, and genuinely cares about you as a patient. He works hard to acknowledge and understand your perspective around other aspects of your life, in order to determine an appropriate plan forward for medical care and recovery. I'm really grateful to have had Anil on my team. Thanks so much!
If you are looking for a specialist who will listen to you and involve you completely in the treatment plan then Anil is your man. After several very successful years under his care I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.
Dr Sharma is an outstanding practitioner. He is clearly well-versed in the area of Gynaecology and can discuss with you the pros and cons around even the newest advances in the field to help you make an informed choice. He also takes the time to ensure that you fully understand what lies ahead. Rest assured, you are in safe hands.
