I would just like to say on behalf of myself and my mam, how grateful we are to Dr Peter Chan. My mam who is just coming up to 90 years of age, may I add a very sprightly 90year old 😊 was put on high blood pressure tablets, this occurred not long after my father died several years earlier. My mother has never been on any medication in her life previous to this, so it came as a bit of a shock to the whole family, especially since she has always been so active and has a good diet. I was very sceptical about the medication and her need to be taking it, so I contacted Dr Chan, who made a convenient appointment to come out and access my mother. My mother was put immediately at ease by Peter, he then give my mother a good check over and then proceeded in enquiring about what had occurred around the time of her being put on medication ie my fathers death. After accessing the relevant information and checking her pressure, height, weight etc . Peter then recommended there was no need for my mother to further take her medication, after he left he then sent the relevant food plan menu for my mother to take and has regularly checked in on her, to see how she is progressing. This was several months ago now and I’m pleased to say she is doing fabulous and I cannot thank Peter enough and couldn’t recommend him enough 😊🙏.
Peter reviewed my lifestyle and diet. Consequently reduced my medication and reversed my type 2 diabetes. Never felt better and as a side effect I lost weight. I found the Private GP service very slick but it was the functional medicine aspect that gave me all the benefits I now enjoy. Couldn't recommend it enough.
A doctor who listens! Who understands, is non judgemental and the best partner in your journey to optimised health you will ever find. This man has literally changed my life
22 years of (at times) debilitating fibromyalgia and depression
Lifetime of diets and unhealthy relationship with food
Chronic bowel and bladder conditions
22 years on high doses of prescribed pain medications, sleeping tablets and highest doses of 2 antidepressants relieved nothing.
Dr Chan spent a lot of time attempting to educate me on what to eat to optimise my health and wellbeing however looking back now I wasn’t ready to begin that part of my journey, I wasn’t ready to leave the sugar or crisps behind. Then after watching other members become healthy I finally knew I had to do something about it
What a difference a few weeks make!
Prescribed Medications 0
Sleeping – without any pharmaceutical intervention
Pain – decreased massively
Brain fog – very slight – but I am getting older!
Sugar cravings – Gone
A huge added extra – 9 weeks later
12stone – 9 stone 12
Size 18 to size 10-12
Never once feeling hungry
what I weigh is no longer my marker, how well I feel will now be my guide
I still have a way to go but I’ve never felt better.
Thank you Dr Chan for changing my life and that of so many others
Thank you Peter for supporting me through a recent Covid infection. Your vast knowledge sharing and calm, reassuring manner were invaluable in my quick recovery. As a nutritional therapist myself, I was impressed by your comprehensive awareness and knowledge of holistic, nutritional and supplementation protocols and your advice regarding medication was very sound and rooted in good evidence-based science. What helped me the most was your calm, reassuring manner and the fact you actually listen to your patients. This is something you don’t get to experience much these days and you clearly understand the importance of mental well-being and good bedside manner in the healing process. I am so thankful you made the time to do the video consultations at short notice and for all your advice and support. I am happy to wholeheartedly recommend your practice to anyone who needs sound, holistic advice and a human, kind and supportive approach.
I needed a GP consultation for my daughter who lives quite a distance away. Arranging the appointment was fairly straightforward and my daughter had a consultation on the same day. Dr Chan was compassionate and arranged treatment promptly
A friend recommended Peter as a Dr with integrity who may be able to help me with an issue I’ve been trying to address with NHS ‘services’ for 18 months but getting nowhere due to the lack of service or credible action plan which meant I was forever being sent in circles and passed from person to person who made promises, none of which were remembered or kept.
Peter was immediately relatable and went out of his way to help me. He quickly set up a zoom call to ascertain the issue and come up with a treatment plan.
I had more help in an hour or two of his time than from 18 months previously and he has offered ongoing support check ins.
I found it slightly difficult to pay for his time as he did not ask for money so I had to insist. Even that amount was negligible for the effort he put in. He was definitely not motivated by financial reward but by genuine care and an eagerness to help.
I was humbled by Peter’s professional, personal, ethical care shown towards me. I could sense that he really wanted to help.
Such a contrast to the box ticking processes and hurdles I was made to jump via the NHS ‘service’.
I would recommend Peter as a Dr to anyone. One with a heart who really cares for the individual and their well-being.
Thank you for your support
We were lucky to find Dr Chan. He was compassionate, professional and genuinely wanted to help. Both my husband I were covid positive. My case was mild but my husbands situation was becoming concerning. He took the time to listen and understand our medical situations, without judgement (going over our allotted consultation time). Dr Chan conversed with us about vitamins and viral treatments comfortably and knowledgeably. Prescriptions were sent over quickly and my husband and I began to feel better within a few days.
Thank you Dr Chan for your help. We have saved your number
My consultation with Dr Chan was extremely informative. My circumstances led him to recommend a complete change to my diet. To most, this huge lifestyle change would feel daunting. However, it was explained to me so well and so in depth that I was not worried about such a big change.
I’m already noticing the benefits of practicing Mindfulness meditation on a daily basis, I’m much less stressed and sleeping much better already, and it hasn’t even been a week since our appointment.
As our appointment was so in-depth, he even kindly typed up some notes and emailed them over to me the next day.
I found Dr Chan not only extremely knowledgeable but also very friendly. It was clear to my husband and I that Dr Chan truly cares about his patients. This is not just a job for him, he really does want to help people.
Would I recommend Dr Chan?
Absolutely. In fact, I already have been recommending him to family and friends
used this private GP service and was astounded at the speed and the level of service I received. I cannot say I have ever received service like it from a GP. It was thorough, speedy and very high quality. I would most definitely recommend this service highly
I left Dr Chan’s office feeling very positive about my future health. He takes the time to listen and explain how a change in lifestyle can improve your wellbeing.
I greatly appreciate Peter’s calm approach to issues. He has a wide breath of knowledge and is able to provide perspective when I feel fearful about my health. This service represents a cornerstone of my attempts in optimising my health.
