Tracey Purnell – Wagga GP doctor

Dr Tracey Purnell
Advanced Certificate Skin Cancer Medicine
Primary Certificate in Cosmetic Medicine

Dr Tracey Purnell graduated from the University of Queensland and completed her specialist general practice training with The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

She was awarded the Maureen Duke and Marion O’Sullivan award for achieving the highest grade in her Queensland general practice exams.

Never one to stop learning, Tracey has gained further training and experience in Women’s health, pregnancy care, skin cancer medicine and cosmetic medicine. She recently took the biggest leap of her professional life by opening her own practice, and since doing so in August 2017, has never looked back. Central Wagga Medical is the product of many years spent listening to what patients want from a practice and learning from some of Australia's most innovative general practices. Tracey is passionate about excellence in health care and is often challenging other health practitioners by insisting there must be a better way. She is warm, friendly and relates to her patients on their level, often using humour to help them feel relaxed.

“My goal for each consultation, each and every day, is for each patient to leave feeling better than when they walked in”

When not working Tracey can be found pottering around her garden, entertaining, reading a good novel or binge watching Netflix. She is wife to one, mother to two and carer of the growing menagerie of animals that call her place home.

Dr Patricia Overvliet


Dr Patricia Overvliet (Tricia) is a General Practitioner who undertook her medical degree through the Australian National University Medical School, and completed her training in the Wagga region.

‘Seeking and maintaining good health, and overcoming illness is a universal challenge that every human being faces. Everyone approaches their experiences in a unique way.  I am committed to working in partnership with my patients to achieve the best possible health outcomes’.

Tricia has special interests in women’s health including pregnancy care, she really loves babies and children. She also has interests in sexual health and LGBTI health and she understands that special care is often needed in this area. Tricia also has an interest in palliative care and feels very privileged when allowed to help people at the end of their lives.

“I love talking to people, hearing their personal narratives, laughing with them, working issues out with them, advising them and sometimes even crying with them. I am one part doctor, one part detective, one part clown and one part geeky nerd, with a little artist thrown in.”

Tricia is very excited to be entering a new phase in her medical journey by joining the practice at Central Wagga Medical
