« I want patients to be as autonomous as possible, I always ask them for their opinion on the chosen treatment »

Dr Filipa is a general practitioner at Alegria Medical Centre. For as long as she can remember, she has always wanted to be a doctor. She loves understanding how our bodies work and how we can improve them.
She studied medicine in Pilsen, Czech Republic, for 6 years and then spent a year learning French to be able to work in Switzerland. After a first experience there in paediatric psychiatry, she decided to come back to Portugal to work.
Dr Filipa tries to “enjoy life” and not focus on everyday life’s little problems. She is a sports fanatic and in her spare time you will find her surfing or skating in the Parque das nações!
