“Aussie girl at heart who loves the beach, shopping and colourful high heels.”

I was born in Perth and after High School, moved with my family to the UK where I trained as a GP. I have expertise in a wide range of specialities and bring knowledge from having worked as a GP in both Australia and in the UK. I particularly enjoy care of people in Mental Health Issues, Child and Women’s Health (I offer Pap Smears, Mirena and Implanon Fitting and Removal, Contraception, Sexual Health and Menopause Management).

It is often said that you hear me before you see me, so come and say Hi. I look forward to meeting you, your family and friends.

Dr Gurvinder Singh Saini

General Practitioner

MBBS, MS, MCh, DNB (Plastic & Recon Surgery), (India)

I hail from the state of Punjab, India. My initial medical training has been in India, in and around Bombay (Mumbai). In addition to primary care, which is the core of Medicine, I have keen interest in skin problems. My plastic surgical background is an asset that positions me into this niche to serve my clients well, especially those who have lesions on the face or other cosmetically important areas. Additionally, I am an advocate of preventive health care and men’s health issues.

In addition to academics, many other aspects of life excite me. Out of my hobbies, photography dominates. I also like to play chess. I hope to learn how to paint, and to play guitar some day! It has been a wonderful stroke to luck to meet such noble persons as Samy family and be a part of this practice. We, as a group, commit ourselves to strive to bring the best in healthcare to you. And of course, I look forward to meet you all!
