Dr. Jennifer Bepko

Am Bd Cert Family Physician
Tend Symonds Street Medical Centre

Dr. Jennifer Bepko trained in Texas for university and medical school. She then served with the United States Air Force as a Family Medicine Physician for 20 years, with assignments throughout the US.

She embarked on a year-long journey with her family, including her two teenage children, visiting an incredible twenty-six countries before settling in Tamaki Makaurau.

Dr. Jennifer has extensive experience caring for patients in various settings and across all age groups. Her practice has included working in small community hospitals, outpatient clinics, and large medical centers. She has a particular interest in women's and children's health.

Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys spending quality time with her family, going for runs, traveling, and indulging in the best local food that New Zealand has to offer.

I’m excited to continue my journey with Tend. With our focus on equity and access, I believe we can make a real difference where it matters the most.
