Paediatric Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Service
Who I Am
Dr Nir Fireman FRACP
Paediatric Gastroenterologist and Endoscopist
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:
Liver disease in infants and children
Investigations and treatment may include:
Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy
Video Capsule Endoscopy
Lactose and Fructose breath test
Oesophageal pH Monitoring
Wireless pH Monitoring (BRAVO)
Imaging (Ultrasound, x-ray, MRI) referral
What to Bring
Bring your child’s well child book, plus any previous measurements of their height and weight (particularly if there are concerns about growth). Bring any further investigation your child has had.
Appointments can be made with or without referral from your doctor. If your doctor does suggest the appointment it is useful to have a letter from them containing any important information and results of any previous tests.
A child’s first visit may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. I’m happy to have a phone or video consultation as well. Please visit our contact page or select the "chat" banner on the site.
Payment will be made at the time of the consultation and a receipt provided. EFTPOS facilities are available. Fees can be advised at the time of booking an appointment.
Nir is a Southern Cross Affiliated Provider and all of his consultations, and endoscopies that he provides are covered, allowing these patients to not have out of pocket costs.
There is ample free patient parking provided in front of the clinic.
