Adrian Harrison has always used a systematic approach to diagnosis and problem solving in his career as a Respiratory (or Chest) Physician. After Medical School and two years of post graduate training in Adelaide (M.B.B.S, 1971) Adrian moved to Concord Hospital in Sydney for a further two years before completing his Respiratory training (F.R.A.C.P. 1979) as a Clinical and Research Fellow at hospitals associated with the University of Southern California at Irvine. Adrian moved to Green Lane and Auckland City Hospitals in 1979, and he still works there as a part time Respiratory Consultant. He has published more than 30 articles, many of about tuberculosis and others about asthma in New Zealand. He has been an active participant in the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand, holding a variety of positions over many years. Adrian has been a Director of Medical Specialists Group since its inception in 1989.

Adrian’s special interests include troublesome Cough, Bronchiectasis and Mycobacterial chest infections. Adrian is very experienced in managing both asthma and COPD. He excels in sorting out complex respiratory problems. Rapid investigation of lung cancer is facilitated by his long experience as a bronchoscopist. In addition to medical science skills, Adrian’s interests also include motivation, education and achieving: smoking cessation, for instance, is an area where these interests are applied.
