HealthNatters Blog

I am Dr Isabelle Granger-Cohet, originally French and now Anglo-French, previously a dentist and now Co-Founder and Director of The Medical Chambers Kensington and La Clinique Française. 

I regularly talk to our specialists about a huge range of health matters which I think will interest you.
