She is a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners and has specific qualifications in family planning.
Dr Dave qualified from St George's Medical School in 1997 and went on to train in a number of specialities including A&E, Anaesthetics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Genitourinary Medicine. She attained her MRCGP in 2002 following completion of her training and has worked in South London since qualifying.
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.
