Dr Praveen’s treatment plan is a holistic approach that focuses on overall wellbeing. She strives to treat the root cause, rather than superficial issues, that assists in long term improvement in health. Her guidance has made tremendous changes and makes me more aware of myself. Apart from improvements in my health, I now feel much happier and calmer than before.
I was struggling with ADHD when I saw Dr Praveen which was having an effect in all areas of my life. Her calm approach, through assessment has given me a lot of insight and strategies to deal with my symptoms.
Until 2016, I was suffering with severe joint pains and fatigue for over 2 years. This took a mental toll on me with low mood and loss of self confidence. Dr Kavita devised a treatment plan which has worked wonders for me. I feel much younger, energetic, rid of joint pains, boost in self-confidence, slimmer, mentally and physically fit. Thank you for your guidance and assistance.
