About me

Dr Sara Kayat is a practicing GP at Balham Park Surgery, which is currently featured on Channel 5’s GPs Behind Closed Doors. This experience on Television enabled her to branch out and reach an even wider audience as the resident GP for the weekly “Second Opinion” feature on ITV’s This Morning. She is an all-round GP and enjoys writing and advising about the everyday things from snoring, to IBS, to keeping your home a healthy place to be.

Dr Kayat studied medicine at Kings College London where she also achieved a BSc in Physiology. She has a keen interest in Sexual and Reproductive Health for which she has a diploma, as well as an interest in surgical specialties like ENT and Orthopaedics having done placements in these specialities during her training. She has brought this interest with her into general practice by having a weekly minor surgery clinic, removing all sorts of lumps and bumps. Furthermore she practices cosmetic medicine and likes to keep up to date in the world of aesthetics.

She enjoys keeping happy and healthy with running, yoga, and lots of vegetables, but is a huge advocate of also keeping good mental health, and practices Mindfulness. She also enjoys the more extreme sports like scuba diving, bouldering and skiing and travelling as far as her air-miles will allow.
