Dear Patients,

It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from Main North Road Medical Centre.

After 40 years of serving this wonderful community, the time has come

for me to step back and begin a new chapter in my life.

Caring for you and your families has been one of the greatest

privileges of my career. I have cherished every moment, from the

routine check-ups to the more challenging times, and I am grateful

for the trust and confidence you have placed in me.

Rest assured, your health and well-being will continue to be in good

hands. Dr Ashley Ha will be taking over my practice and is committed

to providing you with the same level of care and dedication.

Wishing you all health and happiness in the years ahead.

Best wishes,

Tony Lynch

A note From Ashley

I am honoured to introduce myself as the new doctor taking over the practice from Dr Tony Lynch. I am excited to continue the high standard of care that you have come to expect.

I was born in South Korea, then made New Zealand my home since 14 years of age. I completed my medical degree at University of Otago in 2011 and spent a few years in Dunedin and Christchurch Hospital in a variety of specialties including general medicine, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, older person’s health, and psychiatry. I subsequently completed training in general practice and was awarded fellowship with Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners in 2020.

 I understand how important it is to have a trusted and compassionate healthcare provider. I am committed to providing you with personalized and comprehensive care. I look forward to meeting each of you, learning about your health needs, and working together to achieve your health goals.

Thank you for welcoming me into your healthcare journey. I am eager to begin this new chapter and to serve you with the same level of excellence and compassion that Dr Tony Lynch has provided.

Warm regards,

Ashley Ha
