“I used to have trust issues with doctors - especially when it came to my hormonal imbalance as a woman - as they never had enough time for me since a long line is queuing behind me. So they simply prescribed some sort of contraceptive pill and asked me to call in the other patient... However, this was all different with Dr Shilpa, and I'm so grateful I found her after my research for a doctor whom I felt I can trust! As an Ayurvedic yoga therapist, it was important for me to find someone with a holistic perspective, which not only focuses and wishes to eliminate the physical symptoms but looks and observes the mind-body-soul connection as a whole. Just a month before visiting Dr Shilpa, I made some small adjustments to my already conscious diet & lifestyle. So, when I got there, she gave me enough time to tell her everything I wished to share, and we also discussed possible options for supporting my health further. Instead of any artificial medicines, these include observing my diet & lifestyle after my adjustments - which seem to be doing their work already as I feel and Dr Shilpa confirmed this with her background of knowledge - and she also recommended to take a blood test to check my nutrition along with a DUTCH test for my hormones. However, for now, I'm carry on with my conscious vegan diet for the next couple of months, and will probably get back to Dr Shilpa for a check-up after. Since she's a private gp, obviously, I payed more than at a public healthcare institute. However, I made this payment happily as I got what I wished for after years - and what else should we invest in than our own health? I finally felt understood and cared for by a doctor. And now, I have one to trust in giving me guidance in my health if I get a bit lost or confused. :) I'm grateful for Dr Shilpa, and can happily recommend her to everyone! :)“

    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 offer video consultations and remote fingerprick blood testing for most conditions.

    Dr Shilpa is a talented, kind and dedicated GP who provides a holistic approach to her patients’ health and wellbeing. I consulted Dr Shilpa with a variety of disabling symptoms including menopause, anxiety and burnout. Using the functional DX approach we identified the causes and have taken steps to address them. Two months in I am feeling much better, the symptoms are resolving and I feel empowered and supported to make the necessary changes. Thank you Dr Shilpa.
