Our Team

Our practice has provided medical services to the local community for almost 50 years. We are proud of our legacy of intergenerational care, serving some of our patient families for four generations.
 

Dr Jamie Shepherd and Dr Vicki Mount, owners of Mission Bay Doctors, live locally. Because they’re part of the community, they keep in touch with what matters to you, our patients.

All our GPs are Members or Fellows of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.

Their medical training is completed and now, after working in the hospital system for a minimum of two years, they have completed, or are partway through, three-year specialist postgraduate GP training. A Member of the RNZCGP is part-way through specialist training; a Fellow has completed training and qualified as a specialist GP. All our doctors participate in ongoing medical training.

All our doctors and nurses speak English. One of our doctors speaks fluent Mandarin and conversational Cantonese; a second doctor speaks both these languages at conversational level. If you require an interpreter for any other language, we can arrange this ahead of your appointment.

Dr Jamie Shepherd FRNZCGP and MRCS

“I knew from age five that I wanted to be a doctor, it’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do. As a GP, you form special relationships with people and have a unique opportunity to play a positive role in their lives and in their community. Those relationships are very special. My focus is on making sure every person has a fantastic experience at Mission Bay Doctors, and I’m always thinking about innovative ways to improve patient care via smart technology.

I trained at the University of Otago, then worked around the world, including training in emergency medicine for five years at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. I’m experienced in all aspects of family care, skin medicine and surgery, and mental health. My spare time centres on family, kids, and sports.”

Dr Vicki Mount FRNZCGP, DipPaeds, MPH

“General Practice is more than a job. For me, it’s about serving our patients and our community. I am so fortunate to work in a role that combines my wonder at the human body with the opportunity to truly know my patients and walk alongside them through their life journey.

Before training in medicine, I worked in public health for over 10 years. This inspired me to study further, to complete specialist GP training, a Diploma in Paediatrics, and a Master's degree in Public Health. I continue to be involved in medical research, focusing on vaccine-preventable diseases and health inequities.

I am a generalist doctor at heart but with special interests in children’s health, menopause, healthy aging, and skin medicine and surgery.

Outside of work I love dance, skiing, and travel with my family.”

Dr Su studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh. She further specialised as a general practitioner in Scotland, where she met her husband. Su now lives locally with her family, enjoying the warmer Auckland climate.

"My academic and professional journey began at the University of Otago in Dunedin, where I earned my degrees in Biomedical Sciences and Medicine, which was followed by a significant chapter of my career in Wellington.

After seven years, my family's decision to return to Auckland was driven by the desire to raise our daughter surrounded by family, in the community that means so much to us.

As a GP, I deeply value the opportunity to build lasting, meaningful relationships with my patients and their families.  I believe in supporting not just the physical health of my patients but their overall well-being.

Outside the clinic, photography and cooking are my passions and I cherish my time outdoors, exploring and reconnecting with nature.

Joining MissionBay Doctors is a sort of homecoming for me, bringing my professional journey full circle back to the community where I grew up.

Dr Blake Henley MB ChB

My journey in medicine began in the humble settings of Dannevirke, leading me to the vibrant life of Dunedin, where I completed my medical degree in 2016.

Embracing the challenges of medical school was just the start.

After graduating, I found my calling in various adult medical specialties as a medical registrar across the Wellington region, where the diversity of cases and the pace of life taught me invaluable lessons.

Transitioning into general practice was a deliberate choice, driven by my belief in the importance of continuity of care. Being able to follow a patient's journey over time, understanding their history, and seeing the impact of care firsthand is what makes being a GP truly rewarding for me.

Outside the clinic, staying fit and active is my outlet. Whether it's hitting the gym, going for a run, or exploring the outdoors, I believe in the power of staying physically active for mental and physical well-being. Becoming a new dad has added an incredible dimension to my life, keeping me busy in the most rewarding way possible.

"Working with families is what attracted me to General Practice. I am dedicated to getting to know my patients and believe in a holistic approach to health. I have fond memories of growing up in the Eastern Bays and I am excited to be back to raise my own family.

I graduated from the University of Auckland in psychology and medicine. Following this, I completed my Master's degree at the University of Oxford and worked in reproductive health in London.

 

I enjoy all aspects of family medicine with a special interest in fertility, women’s health, and preventive medicine.

I am married with two young daughters. Outside of work, I am happiest keeping active and enjoying family adventures."
