About Dr Eamon Egan
Born and raised in Wellington, I am a graduate of Victoria University and the University of Auckland School Of Medicine. I completed undergraduate medical training in Auckland and specialist training in both Auckland and Hamilton.
For the past 8 years I have been a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist working in Hamilton. During that time, I also conducted outreach clinics in Te Awamutu, Tokoroa and, most recently, Thames. Recently, I was acting Clinical Director for ICAMHS in the Waikato region. As a result, I have developed an understanding of the services available locally and have developed a network of clinicians in various disciplines which is invaluable in facilitating optimal care.
Now working from Anteris Hamilton, I welcome patients from the Waikato and nearby regions. Initial assessments are carried out face to face, however follow up appointments can occur via audiovisual link for patient convenience if desired. Although trained as a child and adolescent psychiatrist I am also trained as a general psychiatrist. I am able to see children, adolescents and adults up to the age of 65.
As well as clinical work I have also taught University of Auckland medical students and psychiatric registrars. I have also regularly supervised junior registrars rotating through ICAMHS as well as those completing advanced training in child and adolescent psychiatry.
I pride myself on being warm and open. I have a wide range of experience in psychiatry and strive to provide optimal care. I am honest with patients and their families about diagnoses and the utility of various interventions. Although I do not formally provide psychotherapy I feel it is often an integral part of a persons recovery and can facilitate engagement with appropriately trained therapists.
I have a special interest in the diagnosis and management of ADHD both in the child and adolescent and adult population. I also have expertise in the management of mood and anxiety disorders.
