Who I Am

Dr Nir Fireman FRACP

Hello, my name is Dr Nir Fireman. I'm a Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist based in Auckland, and also see patients in the Wellington area (Rutherford clinic)

I see paediatric patients of all ages from newborn, through childhood to the older teen, with a wide variety of digestive issues. I was trained in paediatrics, then further specialised in paediatric gastroenterology in Israel. Following my arrival in New Zealand, I was working as a consultant at Starship Children's hospital. I have been seeing patients in private practice in Auckland since 2017 and in Lower Hutt since 2018. I have been based at the MacMurray Centre Auckland and the Rutherford clinic at Lower Hutt.  

Common conditions referred for my assessment include:


Investigations and treatment may include:

  • Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy

  • Video Capsule Endoscopy

  • Lactose and Fructose breath test

  • Oesophageal pH Monitoring

  • Wireless pH Monitoring (BRAVO)

  • Iron infusion

  • Imaging (Ultrasound, x-ray, MRI) referral

  • Dietitian referral

  • Psychologist referral
