About Dr Glen Davies General Practitioner & Lifestyle Medicine Physician
Dr Glen Davies is a GP specialist with dual fellowships in both general practice and lifestyle medicine. He is a passionate advocate of lifestyle approaches to reversing chronic disease.

He has helped over 100 patients reverse their prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, recognised for his work by being awarded the GP of the Year 2021 at the NZ Primary Care Awards.

Becoming frustrated by failing to address prevention and by managing treatable conditions rather than aiming for cure, Glen's “why” is now to make a difference as a healer and to contribute to creating healthier communities.

He combines the power of lifestyle medicine with a coach approach, to walk beside clients, supporting them on their healing journey.
