Dr. Groves enjoys all aspects of medicine, particularly contact with patients, the building of relationships, and holistic care. Her enthusiasm, specialist skills, and advanced training in women's health has naturally led her into provision of well woman clinics.

Deena El-Shirbiny, MBBS, MRCP, MRCGP, DFSRH, DRCOG, is a general practitioner with a range of experience in primary care. During her career, Dr. El-Shirbiny gained clinical experience in a variety of clinical environments, including Nepal, Australia, Egypt, and the UK.
