Dr Reece Yeo is the Clinical Director of Doctor Earth Bondi Junction Wellness Clinic and he is passionate about holistic health!
Trained as a medical doctor at University of Sydney and having worked for government hospitals and multinational pharmaceutical companies, Reece became disillusioned with the mainstream health system and decided to retrain in natural therapies.

Reece also loves utilizing iridology in clinical practice as, from his experience, your eyes are indeed the window into your health and constitution. Other services offered by Reece include genetic testing, food allergy testing and a whole range of functional medicine pathology testing.
Always one who believes in collaborative healthcare, Reece works closely with other health practitioners within the clinic and outside the clinic to help you attain and maintain optimal health. In his capacity as clinic director, Reece is also actively involved in the training and mentoring of more junior naturopaths in the clinic. Outside of his clinical practice, Reece teaches budding young Chinese Medicine students at the Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine where he has won an Excellence in Teaching award for his dynamic style of teaching.
If you are looking for a practitioner who can understand and explain your health condition from multiple health perspectives (modern medicine, naturopathic medicine and oriental medicine), and also offer you a combination of the best of different modalities of medicines, then Reece is the practitioner for you!
