Dr. Monica Lascar joined the Marion Gluck Clinic in 2018 and brings with her a wealth of experience. Having trained in Sexual Health and HIV at University College Hospital, she went on to achieve a research degree from UCL in Viral Immunology. In 2010, Monica became a Consultant and holds a part-time position at Barts Health NHS.
Throughout her career, Monica developed an interest in functional medicine, bio-identical hormones and a more holistic approach to patient care, leading her to further her training by enrolling at The Institute of Functional Medicine and The Marion Gluck Training Academy.
She has completed AFMCP, applying functional Med in clinical practice, as well as the APM advanced practice module with the IFM institute of functional Medicine (USA). Monica now employs a functional medicine approach where appropriate, which looks at food as medicine alongside targeted supplements and to balance the body’s hormones, the use of bioidentical hormones. She has experience treating patients with a range of complex symptoms, including peri-menopause, menopause, fatigue and immune dysfunction conditions.
Outside of the clinic, Monica is a mother of three boys, aged 10, 12 and 14 and has a much-loved cat named Layla. She replenishes her energies with outside activity and artistic pursuits including clay modelling and stone carving.
