I have found the support and advice from Dr Angela at Spiced Pear Health life changing. After several years of struggling with very difficult menopause symptoms and not being listened to by a range of GP's, just having someone sympathetic to talk to has been fantastic. But then for the treatment to work so quickly has been transformative. I really wish I had known about Spiced Pear Health years ago. Dr Angela is friendly and positive and instantly put me at ease. I was given time to talk through my issues and felt like no question was too stupid to ask. - Spiced Pear Health Client
The innocent fairness in gender affinity group booked Angela and Angela to do an open Q&A on the subject of women’s health. Both doctors were incredibly knowledgeable and open, answering questions around contraception, menopause, fertility and the impact of covid on women’s health. The group left feeling really inspired, taking action to book appointments with their own GPs. We can’t wait to welcome them both back. - Innocent Smoothies
Spiced Pear delivered a specialist talk on the menopause to our team of women's health physiotherapists. It was the most comprehensive, informed and thorough talk I've been to. - Ten Health & Fitness
