    About

    Dr Shilpa Dave is an experienced Private GP with over 15 years of experience in well established private GP clinics in London. Dr Dave is also an NHS GP with over 20 years of medical experience. She is a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners and has specific qualifications in family planning.

    Dr Dave has developed a special interest over the years in the root cause of disease which has had stemmed from her interest in yoga, nutrition and Ayurvedic medicine. This has led her to embark on developing an interest in the novel branch of medicine Functional Medicine which looks at a whole person approach to disease focusing on symptoms but rather the root cause of disease. By looking at the role of for example diet, gut health, stress and exercise then a root cause approach can avoid unnecessary use of medicines and pills to treat disease.  Dr Dave is an AMFCP delegate and strives to integrate this approach to medicine in her daily General Practice. This has led her to develop her own practice within Kirby Chemist, Dental and Medical Centre. The centre offers a travel clinic, on-site pharmacy as well as reflexology, Pilates and other health specialities all under one convenient roof.

    Dr Dave went above and beyond to help me. She was extremely helpful and reassuring and I am very grateful to her for the kindness and professionalism she showed. Despite my appointment going over the allotted appointment time she made sure I was given the correct prescription by the pharmacist. I will definitely go and see her again and highly recommend her.

    I had a very good experience with Dr Shilpa Dave who is also a NHS doctor. She was a good listener and the appointment did not feel rushed at all. She is caring and considerate as she even came out to the chemist with me to make sure I was taken care of by the staff there.

    I found Dr Shilpa Dave to be very thorough, caring and a lady of integrity and these qualities are all very much appreciated. She was able to refer me to somebody very fast who diagnosed me with a tendon and nerve injury. Would definitely recommend. I find the functional medicine approach much more helpful than standard medicine as it focuses on addressing the root cause of health problems.

    I took my daughter to see Dr Dave as it was a Saturday and really didn't fancy a trip to sit in A&E for hours. The booking process was slick and, although I was not convinced that it had worked, it did. Dr Dave called to verify the appointment and we were set. The surgery is a nice place and the care was superb. My daughter was examined thoroughly and Dr Dave was incredibly good with her. She spent a long time with us and gave a prescription that sorted the issue in a couple of days. Not only that but Dr Dave then called later that evening (Saturday) to make sure that everything was ok and if we needed anything else. I cannot rate this service highly enough and, for the price, it was a no-brainer. Will definitely use again.

    My recent visit to Dr. Dave was very thorough but also efficient. Her administrative colleagues collected information from me in advance of my visit, saving time during actual visit. Dr. Dave asked a number of questions, and was able to help me with my issue immediately and effectively. I would definitely visit Dr. Dave again if in need.

    I went to see Dr Shilpa Dave for a first consultation on Friday . I found her to be very approachable and very thorough. She looked st me and not at a computer screen . She examined me and asked me questions. She referred me to a specialist urgently. I saw her on Friday afternoon and as a result saw the specialist on the Monday evening . I am both relieved and very grateful to her.

    I have found Dr Dave to be a thorough, highly professional and kind GP who takes the time to understand a patient's individual needs and background. As someone fortunate enough to be in generally good health, I sought out a private, traditional GP to provide the continuity of care and holistic approach that I was unable to find elsewhere. I would particularly recommend Dr Dave to other patients who have an understanding of and connection with their own bodies already, and who are keen to learn more and keep themselves in good health proactively. Her manner is warm and kind, and she was able to put me at ease very quickly after meeting her. The Teddington practice is family-orientated and also has a range of other healthcare professionals on site, which add to the convenience. Thank you to Dr Dave and team for your care.
