At Lincoln Medical we practice modern medicine and hold to traditional values. Our goal is that our patients feel the warmth and the dedication of the team.
For our enrolled patients, we provide a doctor dedicated to emergencies and to specific children’s clinics. Two of our doctors have specialized training in emergency medicine and are familiar with all aspects of acute medicine. We work closely with the two local pharmacies near-by our clinic.
The clinic was renovated in 2017 and uses the latest equipment to provide the best care to our community.
We continue to provide home visits, especially to those facing long and sometimes painful illnesses. We also collaborate with District Nurses in the provision of Palliative Care.
As a team, we are dedicated to providing you and your family with the highest quality care that we possibly can.

I have been at the Medical Centre for about 12 years and have nothing but praise for the service and care I have received in that time and also the friendly atmosphere.
On the first day of the corona virus lockdown, I had an appointment with Dr. Dumaine, and I was very impressed with health and safety measures taken for both the staff and patient. It was very professional, and yet the friendly atmosphere. My appointment with the doctor followed by a blood test was very first class.
I wanted to thank you for all your fine efforts as the public needs you, especially going through this pandemic.
I wish you all the best.
Excellent! The folks at Lincoln Medical are the best. Always pro, exceptional, and friendly. Thank you!
Dr. Lawrenson and the team did amazing. The dedication of the doctors, nurses, reception staff and all means that we can truly rely on you being there for us.
The receptionists are legendary – with a huge workload they are consistantly polite, helpful, and cordial! Stunning front desk service!
I am sure this must be such a stressful time for you and your staff and I guess common sense tells me there are harder times ahead over the coming months but I want to thank you and your team for all you are doing. Doctors, nurses and all the wonderful team there and everywhere really are the heroes in these circumstances. You all have your own families who you love and want to protect but you give yourselves to work and helping others. Thank you on behalf of all those people who don’t think about you and your risks and thank you for handling those who don’t realise they shouldn’t be turning up at the surgery with every sniffle. Thank you for your professionalism and for your care and love of people.
I recommend for French with a medical problem who are either passing through New Zealand or settled around Christchurch. Dr. Denis Dumaine, who is French and I met twice, is very friendly, attentive and does not hesitate to ask questions to better identify the problem.
The team at Lincoln Medical Centre have always acted fast, proficiently and with accuracy with my minor medical issues, with my family when there is a life threatening issue such as Walking Pneumonia or something more serious has taken all steps to diagnose appropriately as well as suggesting medical devices to buy and monitor those all so important symptoms over time at home, which allows us as as patients to be better informed of those symptoms escalating before going to Hospital or calling an Ambulance
Denis Dumaine is a very kind and compassionate doctor, with my complicated health needs he is very accommodating and understanding he listens to my medical questions, and he is very friendly and listens to my health care requests. For example, if I need a referral to any specialists, he is extremely helpful. I have found it hard to get an appointment with him and have had to see the other general practitioners at Lincoln Medical who are also very helpful. I have been with many medical GP’s in the past and found it hard to get a GP to understand my complicated health needs until I discovered Lincoln Medical Center. Meeting Denis Dumaine has ensured all my health needs are met, I have never dealt with such a caring and efficient doctor in my life (and I have dealt with many). I would personally recommend Lincoln Medical Center to any patients with complex health issues.
