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).

I cannot thank Dr Sharma and Anne enough for their kind, compassionate and life-saving care. Anne went out of her way to find me an appointment when I was in a bind. Dr Sharma was amazing from the get-go, listened to my concerns, thoroughly explained my situation and immediately provided me with top notch medical care. I will forever be grateful.
The best Gynecologist, I am so lucky to have found him. Solved issues and gave me results all while taking all the stress off me. Would highly recommend.
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 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.
I couldn't recommend Dr Anil and his receptionist more highly 😊 I was very worried about what I needed done and I was reassured and relaxed with a very smart, caring and funny doctor. Thank you so much you really put me at ease.
Anil is such a caring, kind and support person. I loved his sense of humour and his easy to talk to personality. I would highly recommend Anil to anyone needing to seek specialist help. Thank you for your excellent pre and post op care Anil.
