icon-hospital Caring for your Family and their health
Few things can be as upsetting and nerve-wracking to a parent as those times when your child is unwell. As parents and caregivers, we are responsible for our children’s wellbeing and often feel that we would do anything to make them feel better. However, while a little love and care goes a long way, taking care of children’s health is often more complicated than it sometimes appears. A child’s developing body can be a delicate and complex system to treat when he/she is affected by an illness. In the very young, this is often further complicated by an inability on the part of the child to express their discomfort in terms that can be helpful in discovering the problem. All this makes the field of paediatrics a highly important branch of medicine, requiring the utmost level of skill and professionalism.
At our practice, opened in 2010 (Pr. No. 0361216), we understand that only the best level of medical care is good enough for your child.

The practice is conveniently based out of three different locations within the Gauteng region, making it easy for your children to be seen by the doctor when they need it most.
These locations include: the Roseacres Clinic office in Primrose, Johannesburg, the Sunward Park Office on the East Rand, and the Suikerbos Rand office in Heidelberg. Each of these offices has a dedicated receptionist to ensure that appointments can be easily made.
Consulting hours are from 10am to 5pm. While first consultations must be paid for in cash, co-payments may apply, so it is best to check with the rooms regarding payment when making the appointment.
When your child needs medical care, get it from a practice with a reputation you can trust. Do not hesitate to contact us at 011 842 7525 (Roseacres office), 011 897 1799 (Sunward office), or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
