Welcome to my practice!

I see my Southern Suburbs clients from my home practice on Tuesday mornings and appointments are made directly with me, by Whatsapp or SMS.  I email invoices and payments can be made in cash, via EFT or Snapscan.  To register your details for a medical aid compliant invoice please go to my New client register..  Please settle invoices within 7 days.    If you need to cancel please give me as much notice as you can.

I work from Thula Baby centre in Mouille Point on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (9 until 2).  Penny manages the clinic and organises appointments, so please call her on 021 434 2614 to arrange your half hour consultation, or book directly on line through the website www.thulababy.co.za.

I recommend, for my first-time mums and dads that they see me once a week for the first 4 weeks after birth, and thereafter less frequently, depending on need.  It is hugely beneficial if dads can attend the visits.  I do my best to be available to my new mums and dads to settle concerns and problems as soon as possible in the early few weeks.  Whatsapp and phone calls work best, but please be understanding when family commitments prevail.

Take a look at my services and pricing.

Vaccinations:

I follow the South African EPI (recommended schedule) and the government vaccines are free of charge, though an administration fee is charged.  I am happy to chat about concerns around vaccinating and partial /different schedule vaccinations.  There are a couple of recommended vaccines which the government doesn’t supply (Meningococcal, Chickenpox, Hepatitis A, Gardasil and MMR) which I keep and administer.

Here is the recommended vaccination schedule.

 Emergency numbers:

  • If you need to see a doctor urgently and your paediatrician is not available, kindly use the casualty services at Vincent Pallotti Casualty (021) 506 4000 or Rondebosch Medical Centre (021) 685 8706 for night-time emergencies. Both centres are easily accessible and are well staffed through the night and able to provide competent care, x-ray facilities, ICU support and specialist backup.
  • If you need an ambulance contact ER24 – 084124 or Netcare – 082911. There is also an Advanced Life Support Paramedic Unit available free of charge and dispatched from Vincent Pallotti to surrounding areas that can be contacted on 0860 532 532.

Practice Guidelines:

Aim to give guidance on what services I offer, how I connect and where my boundaries are.
