Closed on Sundays.

Do You Accept Medical Aid?

Yes we do accept most medical aids, although we might require co-payment for some schemes. Please confirm with our reception.

Do you take appointments?

We understand how stressful and inconveniencing it is to spend the whole day at the doctor’s. So yes we do cater for appointments to ensure you don’t spend more time than necessary in the queue when you are sick.

Can I get a False Sick Note?

As much as it is illegal to issue a false sick note, it undermines your relationship with the doctor concerned. A medical certificate is issued only if you are incapacitated due to illness.
