Dr Sally Moorcroft

Award winning integrative and functional medicine doctor

'Dr. Sally is an excellent doctor who is both professional and caring. She takes the time she needs to listen to concerns as well as to inquire about issues to discern the root cause for things. She never makes me feel rushed and gives ample thought and consideration to my health problems. As a woman, talking through the issues helps me to mentally process the problems I am facing and talking is in itself a remedy of sorts. Dr. Sally is excellent at listening and I am very thankful to have found her!'
