SPECIAL SERVICES
  1. Family Medicine Specialist
    As a Family Medicine Specialist we offer our patients access to medical information and knowledge that is constantly updated through continuous professional development and peer review processes. We use the latest technology in diagnostic and therapeutic services at this level of care. Our patients benefit directly from the additional training and qualifications. We have a large network of trusted specialist to refer our patients to and offer access to hospital-based services if need be.
  2. Family Doctor
    The greatest advantage of a family doctor is the scope of practice. We literally walk with our patients from before they are born until the day they pass away. We get to know you as a family, understanding your needs and offering you the type of professional service that is focused and relevant to your particular circumstances. With more than 28 000 medical records on our system, we are enjoying a level of community involvement and trust built on years of experience.
  3. Obstetric Services
    Our practice unfortunately does not offer obstetric services any more. We render antenatal care until 20 week pregnancy only, but no planned deliveries. Having our own ultrasound facility enables us to provide basic ultrasound examinations.
  4. Paediatric Services
    Children are an important part of our practice. We not only look after them before they are born, or during delivery, but continue to care for them throughout their childhood years. We are well trained to provide basic services to our future leaders, but we also have have a good relationship with our Paediatricians and refer readily to them when the need arise, thereby giving your child the best quality of care available at this level.
  5. Adolescent Health
    Adolescents – young people between the ages of 10 and 19 years – are often thought of as a healthy group. Nevertheless, many adolescents die prematurely due to accidents, suicide, violence, pregnancy related complications and other illnesses that are either preventable or treatable. Our love for young people forms the basis of addressing issues such as tobacco use, drug abuse, sexually transmitted infections including HIV, poor eating and exercise habits.
  6. Men's Health
    Men go to the doctor less than women and are more likely to have a serious condition when they do go, research shows. "As long as they're working and feeling productive, most men aren't considering the risks to their health." We offer routine examinations and testing for cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, heart disease, testicular and prostate pathology.
  1. Women's Health
    Women experience unique health issues and conditions, from pregnancy and menopause to gynecological conditions, such as uterine fibroids and pelvic floor disorders. Pregnancy issues include antenatal care, pregnancy loss, preterm labor, and breastfeeding. We offer a range of services specifically for women, such as PAP smears, antenatal care, deliveries, breast examinations and pelvic scans.
  2. Geriatric Health
    Geriatrics, or geriatric medicine, is a specialty that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. We understand the medical challenges for older adults, since more than half of adults age 65 or older have 3 or more medical problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, or high blood pressure. We are well trained to deal with their complex management plans.
  3. Diagnostic Services
    We offer basic side room investigations, such as blood glucose monitoring and urine dipstix testing, as needed during consultations. In addition, we offer more advanced special investigations, including complete lipogram studies, resting and stress ECG and complete lung function testing.
  4. Ultrasound Services
    We offer a number of ultrasound services including early obstetric ultrasound, abdominal ultrasound, gynaecology ultrasound, small part ultrasound, (such as breast, thyroid, testes), as well as Doppler ultrasound examination for the exclusion of deep vein thrombosis. Visit our website for more details.
  5. General Surgery
    Surgery has become an integral part of both diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. With thousands of surgical procedures done in more than 35 years we offer excellent results with a very low complication rate in various sugical procedures. We perform a wide range of procedures including adenotonsillectomy, excision biopsy of tumours and lymphnodes, excision of breast lumps, male and female sterilization, circumcision, appendicectomy, caesarean section, etc.
  6. Travel Medicine
    Travel medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and management of health problems of international travellers. With the decreasing global boundaries and increasing activities, travel medicine has become a rapidly evolving field of medicine. With a recognised certificate in travel medicine we are trained and licensed to provide appropriate advice and management to international travellers.
