Abdul Choudhry - Podiatrist

I have graduated from AUT with a Bachelors of health Science in Podiatry. My interest for podiatry started in my final years of High-school where I had learnt about it and found it very interesting. I have always wanted to work in the health field as it is a way for me to make an impact on people lives. 
 
Growing up I have played many sports with my main interest being in cricket. That’s is where I became specifically interested in MSK and biomechanics as well as other parts of podiatry. Whilst I was born and raised in New Zealand my parents are from Pakistan. I have the ability to understand and speak Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi with a deep connection to my cultural heritage and values 
 
I’ve always believed in treating all my patients to the best of my abilities and do what I can to improve their lives in any way possible. 
 
Outside of podiatry, I am an automotive photographer and enjoy working on vehicles. I also play cricket socially and enjoy Urdu poetry as well as painting and Art history
