Specialist Suite

In 2016 we opened the Specialist Suite, where Dr Tony Edwards, Jane Alexander and Paula Hadabora are practicing Functional Medicine.   Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based preventative healthcare approach that treats illness by focusing on the underlying cause, utilising nutritional science, and promoting wellness by addressing the  unique aspects of each patient.  This allows individual tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance to the patients overall health. For more information on our Functional Medicine team, please see Our People tab.

Dr Anthony Edwards

MB BS, Dip Obst, FRNZCGP Integrated Health GP

A GP since 1981 and at The Doctors Napier since 1989, Dr Edwards uses a combination of natural health and standard medical diagnostics and treatment. He specialises in management of long term health issues whether in children or adults. Focusing on prevention and aiming for long term good health. Appointments with Dr Edwards are necessary and there can be a wait for an initial appointment.

"In the late 1990s, 20 years after graduating as a doctor, I made a radical change. I applied Functional Medicine to my general practice. Functional Medicine focuses on the underlying causes of ill health rather than just naming a series of seemingly unconnected diseases and prescribing a series of drugs or operations for each disease.  Don’t get me wrong. Acute medicine is very accomplished at treating named diseases and we have specialists and hospitals who do this exceptionally well. I was trained as a doctor hence well trained in acute medicine. There have been astounding advances in acute medicine and surgery. Yet more and more people need more and more acute services as they get older. Why? Can this trend be changed?  As I moved from hospital practice to general practice, I started seeing the same people over an extended period of time. I noticed even with the best of care, chronic conditions progressed, albeit more slowly.

Is there evidence of health getting off track before a disease is found? Can those signs be picked up? Can the trend to ill health be reversed? Can a chronic disease state be reversed?  I aspire to avoid the ravages of ill health if I can, and speaking to the members of my medical practice over the years, they want the same. Thus began my quest for answers to these questions. I was surprised to discover there are many answers already out there, but more importantly there is a particular new way of thinking that asks what is really going on? More answers (and more questions) emerge each day, week, year.  I have applied this way of thinking, (Functional medicine) to my practice and my life (as best I can!) since the last years of the 20th century".
