Meet the team

General Practitioner​

Dr Sarah Wells

Dr Sarah Wells has worked as a doctor in the NHS since 2007 and as a General Practitioner since 2009. Her aim in starting the Wells clinic was to provide an alternative way to access GP care to the NHS in a friendly environment, where patients can have more time with GPs and problems are resolved more quickly and effectively. Dr Wells undertook her medical degree at Leeds University before qualifying as a GP with the Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust. She has worked in numerous GP practices and has gained excellent knowledge and experience.

Dr Wells has special interests in Travel Medicine and Medical Aesthetics. She takes a holistic approach in treating her patients and offers a wide variety of tests and treatment options when managing her clients. She has a diploma in International Health which allows her to have a broader knowledge and awareness of travel medicine as she draws upon this knowledge when counselling patients regarding travel vaccinations. She has a background in hollistic medicine which helps her when making conventional diagnoses, thinking outside the box when treating her patients. Dr Wells also provides industry-leading aesthetic treatments for her patients. She has trained at the Royal College of General Practitioners and on Harley Street, London and ensures all her aesthetic procedures are performed with the highest safety standards.

We were delighted that Dr Khan decided to join The Wells Clinic in 2021 to focus on seeing patients in the community and performing joint injections and minor surgery.  As a fully trained General Practitioner he naturally takes a holistic approach when consulting his patients with both surgical and non-surgical problems alike, finding out about their lifestyle, occupation and how their condition affects them day to day. He has extremely good links with the top surgeons within each Orthopaedic speciality and can refer people forward for surgery efficiently as this is required.
