Dr. Danielle Stewart
Functional Medicine & Integrative GP
Dr Stewart set up Northside Health NT in 2015 in response to the ever growing patient need for an Integrative and Functional Medical "home" surrounded by high quality practitioners.
Dr Stewart started her nutritional medicine training in 1998 and since then has been trained by a range of medical organisations such as BioBalance, MINDD, ACNEM & The Kresser Institute. Her main focus is to help people solve often longstanding health problems by finding the underlying cause. She believes quality time spent with each person can be radically life changing when they are able to rediscover wellness and vitality.
DANIELLE IS CURRENTLY ON EXTENDED LEAVE FROM CONSULTING.

Dr Penny Steele
Dr Penny has been working in Darwin for 17 years. She graduated in medicine from Oxford and London Universities. She has worked as a mainstream GP in Adelaide and Darwin, including as Medical Director of Family Planning NT, a GP at Danila Dilba and Genwise in Leanyer, and as a remote medical practitioner in Arnhem Land. Consequently she has developed many skills in treating acute health issues along with managing the complexities of chronic conditions.
Dr Penny has a special interest in the health and wellbeing of mature women. While this group may also have acute and chronic health issues, the overlapping menopausal changes often add to the complexity. She enjoys offering her expertise and ongoing learning in this area to women in Darwin.
