An optimal consultation manages the present symptoms, takes into account any past history, treats the route cause and looks for opportunities to prevent future recurrence or complications.
Our mission is to offer our patients optimal consultations. For this reason, we have removed all potential obstacles to optimum care, mainly time and money. If cost was not a problem and we were able to use only the best doctors, equipment, materials and consulting rooms. If also the appointments were not under the restrictions of time, then there will be little limiting you from receiving optimum care.
We dedicate the time to listen and address well your health concerns.
The first appointment at Ounnas Medical is always one hour (Unless it’s by definition longer such as a Health Assessment, an Insurance or a Visa Medical) During that time, we get to know you and explore your major health concerns. We put those into the context of you full health picture, physical, mental, occupational, emotional and social history all taken into account. After that, once we agree we are good to work together on your health journey, you become an “Ounnas Patient” where you gain privileges to book shorter appointments, 15 or 30 minutes.
We feel the initial appointment, enables us to enter into a partnership in your health journey, so you will never feel alone. We look at every consultation as a meeting of two experts.
You as an expert in your illness and Ounnas Medical as experts in the disease or health challenges you are experiencing. We feel this also brings back that good old concept of “my doctor, my patient” which being a comprehensive, well integrated and holistic clinic we simply love that kind of professional relationship.
Outstanding Medical Professionals
Dr Ounnas and her hand-picked team offer a broad array of services geared to address today’s most common non-emergency illnesses. Think your problem is too silly to see a doctor for? Or too complex you don’t know which direction to go? Let the experts handle that complexity and uncertainty for you.
At a time where almost everyone is specialising and subspecialising, bringing in more specific expertise, unfortunately as a result, patient care has become more fragmented and more complicated. We have made it our mission, to excel in Generalism.
We want to provide our patients a safe haven and a one stop clinic where you will never feel alone or feel rejected.
As generalists, we have a breadth of knowledge and skills to detangle your health concerns and put you in the right direction. We have expanded from the bread and butter main stream general practice towards also medicine that makes you look better (Aesthetics), live better (Lifestyle, Occupational, Sports and Exercise), and feel better (Mental Health, health checks and Preventative Medicine). We call this Progressive Medicine.
We are proud to be the first clinic to bring in this concept into the UK. Dr Ounnas, our founder is a pioneer in the field and the first female doctor to embrace the field in the UK. She has in May 2019 delivered a lecture in Tokyo, Japan at the East Asian Nursing and Primary Care Summit on Progressive Primary Care and the Ounnas Matrix.
Ounnas Medical is a proudly British, truly International Medical firm. We wanted to bring in Progressive Medicine for the benefit of the British people, whilst also reinforcing Great Britains’ position as a leader in global health. We do not claim to have invented Progressive Medicine, which is already practised (albeit slightly differently) in the USA, but we are proud to be the first clinic that brings it into the UK and with Dr Ounnas being one of the people putting in the pillars of the field internationally. Giving credit where it’s due, the first ever doctor who has talked about Progressive Medicine in the UK was Dr Rangan Chatterjee to whom we have a lot of respect.
All doctors you see at Ounnas Medical have a solid broad general medical knowledge and at least one other medical interest or subspecialty under their belt. So, they are able to deliver you a well integrated, multidimension, optimal consultation, the Ounnas Medical style! If we cannot find a skill from one of our medical hats, we will likely find it in another and if we cannot even then, we will refer you to the best specialist colleagues to look after you. We can continue to be involved in coordinating your care if you wish for us to. We want you to feel that you have a doctor in the family, a payoff when you become an Ounnas Medical patient.
A Personal Approach
Our goal is to improve and maintain your overall health and to empower you with an understanding of your condition and wellness plan. We try hard to make personalised management plans that are easy to incorporate in your lifestyle. We know there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all cure, so we never use a one-size-fits-all approach to your diagnosis or treatment. We even tailor made your health assessment, so you are not incurring risks and costs for tests you do not need.
For example, depending on the individuals’ circumstances, we might offer a 50-year-old gentleman a more Cardiovascular oriented health assessment. Whilst, we would suggest a 35-year-old city girl a more female health, fertility, energy screening and optimum skin and beauty-oriented assessment. For a 25-year-old sporty guy or girl, we might suggest a hormone, nutrition, performance and possibly sexual health oriented assessment.
Of course, we can only make recommendations from our extensive list of options available. We respect that the final decision on what to include beyond the basics in your health assessment is certainly yours! We want you feel a partner in your health journey with us, including involvement in your management plan and making informed choices through the shared decision making tools we empower you with. We feel by empowering you by listing all your available options, and explaining pros and cons of each, we put our extensive medical knowledge and skills gained over years into your service in 15, 30 or 60 minutes as you wish. This way, we save you time, giving you the crème de la crème of what you need to know. This enables you to be your own doctor, leveraging our medical knowledge whilst also respecting your autonomy.
