  I have seen Karen for years and she has been heaven sent. There has never been anything that Karen could not find the root cause of and usually completely resolve. She is kind, reassuring and hugely knowledgeable of science, western and alternative medicine meaning that you feel in the safest hands. I now visit Karen before my GP if I have a concern, and then after seeing Karen don't have to see my GP. I 100% recommend Karen for everyone - and many of my family and friends have visited and they feel the same as me.
