Dr Tracy Chandler

Integrative Medicine GP/Director of Dr Wellness

BSc(HONS); MBChB; PGDipSEM, Cert Dermoscopy, Cert Homeopathy, FACNEM, ACNEM, Fellowship Examiner, AIMA Member

Tracy was born in Canada and grew up and trained in England. She is married to her soulmate Grant and they have seven children. Tracy completed a Biochemistry degree and then her primary medical training in England. This gave her a more in-depth knowledge of the human body than most Doctors are required to know.  She then worked as a GP before doing further post-graduate training in Sports and Integrative (Wellness) Medicine and Nutrition. Her decision to specialise in Integrative Medicine partly evolved through her increasing awareness of the impact of nutrition and environment on her own personal and her patient’s health and well-being. Whilst working and raising her family she became unwell and experienced the frustration of conventional medicine not being able to provide a solution for her healing.  It was then she discovered the power of Integrative (Functional) Medicine. This combines the best of conventional and complementary medicine and biochemistry to treat the root cause of poor health.  With her own health experience and being a (recovering) ‘perfectionist,’ Tracy takes your health very personally!

Hannah Paul

Clinical Assistant/Administrator


Hannah has just recently moved home from living in Wellington for three year as she has just finished a bachelor degree in sport and exercise from Massey University. She has always had a passion for health and fitness and she believes that wellness is the key to living a fulfilled life. Based here in Timaru in her spare time she take advantage of the location and loves to get out on the lake in the summer and hit the slopes in the winter. Spending time with her family and friends is also a top priority as well as keeping fit by working out at the gym and being apart of sports teams. She is grateful to Tracey and the team at Dr Wellness on giving her the opportunity to expand her health and wellness knowledge on a greater level.
