If unavailable after hours for any reason, we suggest that you contact your family practitioner or hospital emergency unit if you do not have a private family doctor. The Constantiaberg Medi-Clinic has a 24 hour unit attached to it.

Fees

Whilst we are running a medical practice, like any business I still have to pay for equipment and my staff and rent, therefore we have tariffs. We are contracted out of the so-called scale of benefits. This "medical aid rate" is a subsidy to your health care costs and should not be consid­ered by you as the full payment.

A basic new consult in the rooms will be

SA Citizens: R1600-00 to be paid at the first visit.
Non SA Citizens: R1600-00 for an initial visit.


A follow up consult will be time dependent. This can vary from R1200-1400

After 1 year charges are as per new consult.
Any additional investigations or tests or procedure done in my rooms will be charged in addition to the consultation charge.

 

We do not deal with the medical aids and it is your responsibility to send the account to them and receive monies owed by them to you. A discount is not available except at the discretion of the doctor, and medical aid rates, will only rarely be given, again at the discretion of the doctor. It is my practice not to do any unnecessary investigations, tests or procedures.

New consultations are approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour duration. Follow-ups are between 15 to 45 minutes (depending on the problem).

Any hospital consultations must be settled prior to discharge. The rates of these con­sultations will also in­clude the benefit of discount for cash.

CREDIT CARDS ARE ACCEPTED
