At your appointment
You will be welcomed at the reception area and we ask you to come 10 minutes ahead of your appointment time. Metered parking is available along Teddington high street and Marks and Spencers also has ample parking.
When you first join the practice Dr Dave will ask you to fill out a detailed questionnaire designed to get a full understanding of not only your medical health needs but your environment, approaches to nutrition, your work, sleep and current triggers and stresses. This is not meant to be intrusive but allows us to integrate your diet, stress, nutrition and medical concerns into a personalised package of care and support looking at the root causes of common conditions eg, type 2 diabetes, eczema or asthma.
For simple common conditions, often no tests or any special investigations will be required and your appointment can be brief and straightforward. Many patients do not want additional tests and want simple advice or a prescription (if indicated).
When needed Dr Dave will seek specialist input from lined Consultants at the New Victoria Hospital quickly and seamlessly without the stress of seeing 3 different people via multiple routes for conditions that ultimately may be linked.
An emphasis on holistic care is a theme of the practice with a focus on nutrition, gut health and stress management.
