As 2023 draws to a close, I’d like to express my gratitude to my patients and their families for yet another successful year. The festive season is a perfect time to reflect on our accomplishments, to openly appreciate my village and to count one’s blessings.

This year, once again, has presented its share of success stories and unforgettable moments that linger in the minds of those who lived them. Serving my community is of great importance to me. My heart is full of gratitude for all my patients whose courage and strength inspire me to do what I love. It is they who are the true heroes of hospitals, never forgetting to fight for a brighter tomorrow and better health.

Success is best when it is shared; I feel truly privileged to be part of an amazing team. From my receptionist, Charmaine Lane who makes you feel welcome in our office, to the dedicated Vergelegen Mediclinic staff, as well as theatre nurses and other skilled medical professionals – your kindness, commitment and expertise are extremely valued.

I’m fortunate to have an amazing family who supports me. My wife and my children are my circle of strength and love. They are my home and my safe space and I am fully aware of how blessed I am to have them in my life.

With Christmas upon us and New Year’s resolutions being made, allow me to wish you and your family a festive season filled with peace, love and joy. Take care, unwind and enjoy this special time of the year.

Wishing for a positive year ahead, may you be in good health, enjoy life’s joys and have an abundance of fortune in 2024.

I value feedback from my patients. To help me continue to offer the best service to my patients, please leave me a Facebook or Google review with your experience.
