    I don't know of anything in INZ regulations which specifically states that, but I know, from seeing other people's experiences reported on the forum these many years, that what you have been told is perfectly correct.

    It is for the original medical itself that INZ require one of their panel doctors to be used.

    After that, if the medical has something outside the normal ranges somewhere and is referred to a Medical Assessor (whose responsibility it is to understand the applicant's state of health, to make sure there will be no danger to the NZ population, and/or great expense to the NZ Health Service), and that MA requires more medical tests of some kind, and/or a doctor's or specialist's opinion on some aspect of her state, the applicant must choose the relevant sort of doctor. This doctor may be their own GP, who knows them best and can comment on their day-to-day health, another local doctor, or a specialist in some particular condition.

    have you received a specific request from INZ for further information? If it says a specialist report then that will need to come from someone competent in the particular field.
    If its more general information, such as repeat blood tests etc, then that can come from your own doctor through a competent lab.
