Biography - Dr Shilpa Dave
I qualified from St Georges Hospital Medical School in 1997 and have 20 years experience as a Doctor, 12 of which is in General Practice. I have worked and live in the local area during that time as a salaried NHS GP Doctor and also in Central London and Wandsworth as a Private GP for the past 7 years. I have specific areas of interest and training including health screening, sexual health (Diploma in Sexual and Reproductive Health), family planning, child health and more recently Functional Medicine (DFFM course attendee), where I feel the integration of latest conventional Medicine and factors linking the environment, gut health and the immune system can enhance and complement my practice.
I have set up this practice to provide modern medical care linked with natural approaches to diet, stress, exercise and other key factors in individual patients and their families. Working with practitioners I trust and value based on years of experience and with Consultants and other Specialists who I have longstanding relationships with I will be aiming to provide seamless integrated Private General Practice in an integrated pharmacy, dental and allied health practitioner facility – everything all on one site and local to my patients.
My philosophy is simple – Personalised Lifestyle Medicine linked to Conventional Personal care for your whole family, eat well, move more, exercise smart.
