Our family physicians/doctors aim to offer the broad spectrum of professional medical advice expected of a modern day general practice.
Our consultations last up to 30 minutes, this permits the patient to express all their health concerns in a relaxed manner. Following a medical examination, a treatment or investigation plan is discussed with the patient. Any specialist requirements are then organized and coordinated.
Prevention medicine is utmost in our medical care agenda. We strive to advise patients on lifestyle changes or relevant medication to maintain a quality of life in the future. Our prevention recommendations are based on the latest international guidelines. The patient is fully informed so that their treatment decisions are evidence based.

Mental health forms a significant part of general practice in modern day society. Conditions such as learning difficulties in children, ADHD in both children and adults, depression, anxiety, addictions, personality disorders and dementia are being diagnosed more frequently. With the advent of new treatments for these conditions, our GPs provide the first step to assess, diagnose and treat these delicate issues.
Specialist Doctors attend the practice on a regular basis. This allows our GPs direct contact with the relevant specialist and hence access to latest treatments and medical therapies. Furthermore our GPs attend regular refresher courses on an annual basis.
