London Prestige Awards 2019

Roseneath Medical Practice – Private Medical Practice of the Year

The judges commend Roseneath Medical Practice for their considerate and ethical approach to healthcare.

 
Roseneath Medical Practice is a private practice in Richmond Upon Thames, which has established itself over the last three years, through the concerted efforts of a caring clinical and support team. The team consists of an experienced general practitioner (GP), a consultant paediatrician and administrative staff, who are friendly, compassionate, and put patient wellbeing first. The practice provides patients with
a relaxed, spacious and comfortable environment whilst also affording the highest possible standard of medical care by being equipped with the latest technology.

 
The judges commend Roseneath Medical Practice for their considerate and ethical approach to healthcare. In their everyday practice, Roseneath searches beneath the surface of a problem in order to identify and address the root causes of illnesses, rather than just treating symptoms. The practice also does not treat prescription medication as a cure-all remedy; instead, it concentrates on various aspects of, and possibilities for illness prevention. As well as treating illness, Roseneath Medical Practice helps empower patients to realise their maximum health potential for a large range of conditions. They guide patients – young and old – on their journey to wellbeing by integrating preventive measures such as nutrition, exercise and cognitive techniques into their everyday lives.

‘Dr Soori is the best doctor I’ve ever had. She is really patient, knowledgeable and attentive. She helped me with my issues and also arranged further tests for the same day. She contacted me straight away to discuss results from my scan. I recommend Dr Soori to all my friends and family. She is definitely the best family doctor in Richmond!’

‘Dr Soori is the GP all doctors should be – kind, caring, not rushed, taking the time to fully understand the problem and diagnosing with skill and thought. She is more than a doctor, also being a trusted confidante, a true family doctor, making herself available at short notice with genuine care and concern. I cannot recommend her highly enough!’

 

GP and Paediatrician in Richmond

 

‘We know Dr Robert Arlt for a number of years now. He always treated our children with excellent care. We regularly see Dr Arlt at Roseneath Medical Practice.
He is an excellent and caring paediatrician with lots of experience. We don’t live around Richmond but always happy to travel to see Dr Arlt.
Glad our children have got a fantastic doctor.’

‘I can highly recommend Dr Arlt. He is a very experienced and caring paediatrician whom we have seen since our daughter was born.’

Did you know? Few facts about alcohol consumption…

Did you know that your body can only process one unit of alcohol an hour?

Regularly drinking too much or binge drinking puts your health at serious risk.

alcohol consumption
How much is too much?

-The UK Chief Medical Officers’ guidance is now the same for both men and women- a limit of 14 units of alcohol a week should not be exceeded.

– Fourteen units is the equivalent of : – six pints of beer (4%); six glasses (175ml) of wine (13%); 14 glasses of 25ml spirits (40%)

– In pregnancy it is advised not to drink alcohol at all, to minimise risk to baby

What are the potential health risks of alcohol?
  • Disturbed sleep patterns
  • Weight gain
  • Cardiovascular disease- increased risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke
  • Acid reflux
  • Liver disease
  • Reduced fertility and sexual dysfunction,
  • Cancers of the mouth, head/neck, liver, bowel, pancreas
  • Osteoporosis
  • Memory loss, dementia, depression and anxiety, stress and anger problems
Is alcohol good for the heart?

The advice on this can be confusing.  The potential health benefits to the heart are considered  to be outweighed by other health risks ( as listed above) and only occur if the limit of fourteen units is spaced out during the week (ie not binge drinking). Drinking within the recommended limit is key.

How can we help?

See Dr Soori at Roseneath Medical Practice for an assessment of your drinking pattern and complete evaluation of your resulting physical and emotional health. Blood tests can be done at the practice, with same day results. Depending on the findings advice  and management will be provided to improve your health and prevent potentially serious illnesses.

 

Abdominal / central obesity Q&As

Did you know that abdominal fat is a predictor of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers?

In fact, abdominal (central) obesity is more closely related with cardiovascular disease than general obesity.

 

gp in richmond; obesity

 

Why  does ‘abdominal’  or ‘central’ obesity arise?

  • Because one may consume more usable calories than he/she expends
  • Alcohol and a high meat consumption has been associated specifically with abdominal obesity
  • Conditions that predispose to central obesity are Cushing’s syndrome or Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Why does abdominal fat become more of an issue with age?

  • This is predominantly due to a drop in metabolic rate (the number of calories the body needs to function)
  • Menopause – with the associated change in hormones women tend to hold weight in their abdominal area

What are the possible problems that may arise from central obesity?

  • Osteoarthritis of weight bearing joints eg hips and knees
  • Insulin resistance,  resulting in Type 2 Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Asthma-  people with obesity are more likely to be hospitalised for asthma                   
  • Alzheimer’s disease

What can you do to help ?

  • Exercise (combining aerobic exercise with resistance training is more effective than cardiovascular exercise alone in getting rid of abdominal fat). Also exercise leads to a reduction in cortisol production – a hormone that leads to more abdominal fat deposits
  • Eating healthily – consume the same number or fewer calories than used

How can we help?

See Dr Soori at Roseneath Medical Practice for abdominal measurement, exploration of possible causes,  assessment of your health risks, and advice and treatment of your excess weight condition. Advice will be provided on how one can improve their metabolic rate through diet and lifestyle changes.  Medication can in some cases help to reduce fat absorption, and anti-diabetic drugs can be prescribed which can help diabetes and central obesity.
