Dr Samantha Cullis loved her time studying medicine and enjoyed positions at Monash Medical Centre and Royal Adelaide hospital after graduation.

In 2005, she started General Practice training and has thoroughly enjoyed practicing ever since. Samantha finds her position as a GP in the Ashburton area very satisfying, and considers it a privilege to work in this area of medicine.

“I have loved getting to know so many people over the years and enjoy watching people take control over their own health and wellbeing.”

Samantha is available for a range of consults at Zest Medical – across family health, mental health and sexual health, including the administering of iron infusions and the insertion of mirenas and implanon.

In her spare time, her three great kids (which she drives around a lot) and her two furry friends keep her busy!
