Dr Kiran Agarwal

GMC no: 6155852


Dr Kiran Agarwal is a GP with an extensive experience in ENT and dizziness/balance problems with allround excellent feedback. As a GP, she passionately explores the evidence based lifestyle element of practicing medicine and aims to find the right balance of solutions for an individual.


"Health and illness management have recently become over complicated with confusing information from multiple sources. Usually, a motivated individual seeks is a simple, practical, evidence based, high impact approach which fits in with their own lifestyle. Whilst we all know that ‘one size fits all approach’ does not work but instead understanding the unique physiology, pathology, genetic makeup and the lifestyle requirements of the individual and forming a simplified, practical approach is perhaps the key to improve the long term health outcomes.”
