Who are The Allergy Doctors?

“Allergies are very common and affect about one in three New Zealanders at some point in their lives.”

With over 30 years of combined medical practice and independent qualifications in allergic disease, Dr. Emily and Dr. Nikki joined forces to give the communities of Central Otago access to the latest, evidence-based care and treatments for their allergies. Between them they are also associate members of the Australasian society of clinical immunology and allergy ( ASCIA) and members of the New Zealand paediatric society special interest groups in allergy and eczema.
“We founded The Allergy Doctors to bridge the gap between the care available in our cities and rural communities."
“Allergies aren’t just physical. They can have a broad, and significant impact on all aspects of a sufferer’s quality of life - from restrictions to their diet, disruptions to their sleep, and the knock-on effect they can have on relationships. They can also cause a tremendous amount of anxiety to parents."
“We are here to help. The Allergy Doctors are committed to understanding the very latest in clinical data, therapies, and testing for allergic disease to enable us to treat our patients with the highest standards of professional care."


My name is Dr. Emily O’Regan I’m originally from Wanaka and after working in various roles in New Zealand and abroad, I became a doctor to be able to help our community directly, and I love the challenges that working in rural areas provides.

I am a fellow of The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners, and a practicing GP, with a deep interest in child health and allergic medicine. I have additional qualifications in Allergic Disease from the University of Western Sydney and a Post Graduate Diploma in Child Health from Otago University.


I’m Dr. Nikki Vadgama and have been enjoying living and working with our rural communities in and around Wanaka since 2017. Providing high standards of clinical care and treating each patient as an individual are the cornerstones of my professional approach.

I started my career in London, at Barts and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry and have worked in a variety of medical fields including paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology and emergency medicine to bolster my practice as a GP. I have been a GP since 2006 and am a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. I have additional certifications in Allergic Disease from the University of Western Sydney.
