Radiation Technologist

Komal Shivnetra

I specialize in imaging the human anatomy for the diagnosis and treatment of pathology, assisting with the diagnosis of health problems through the use of x-rays so we can provide accurate and efficient treatment.

I was originally born in Fiji but have been living in New Zealand for the past 17 years. When I was little, I had a passion for dance and thought that when I grow older I would become a famous dancer. Being a radiographer was not in my plans. My uncle is a radiographer and he educated me in my career choice. And I’m glad that he did!

I joined Symonds Street Medical Centre because their vision to help others by providing them with professional health care service really resonated with me. I love the opportunity to meet different people from different countries; all with different stories to share. It warms my heart to meet people and have the chance to listen, advise and help as they leave with smiles on their faces.

My Care passion is to decrease obesity in the younger generation who need to think about their diet, exercising and social behaviours such as alcohol and smoking.

I enjoy the gym, hiking and playing games that keep my brain stimulated
