Who We Are

She ran her own private practice in Sloane Street, London SW1 from 1990 to 2008, where she learnt first-hand about the needs of both clinicians and patients.
Everything she did was designed to create a safe, calm and reassuring environment where all patients are treated with respect.
"I have brought this ethos to The Medical Chambers Kensington, where I am Co-Founder, Director and Care Quality Commission Registered Manager. I am continually driven to strive for excellence and stop at nothing less."
Isabelle is also a founding member and currently Chairperson of Medecine Francaise Londres, an organisation of French speaking doctors in London, and over the years has built up a considerable network of private medical practitioners in London.
