You will be welcomed at the reception area, we ask you to come 10 minutes ahead of your appointment time. Metered parking is available throughout Teddington high street and Marks and Spencers usually has spaces. When you first join the practice Shilpa 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 e.g. type 2 diabetes, eczema or asthma. When Needed Dr Dave will seek specialist input from named 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. We also have close relationships with practitioners in; Acupuncture, Yoga, Pilates, Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Osteopathy and Chinese Medicine.
These are all established practitioners who Dr Dave has personally worked with over the last 7 years. Any tests such as smears, blood tests, ECG’s, peak flow measurements will be performed immediately and results communicated electronically to you via your preferred route (SMS, Email, and supplementary letter).
