Consultations last on average about 15 minutes, except for ultrasound examinations.

A normal consultation involves taking a proper history, a physical examination and formulation of a working diagnosis, without or without treatment or councelling.
Diagnostic services follow a consultative process. It may be necessary to perform some sideroom investigations, like doing the blood sugar levels, or further tests such as an x-ray examination or formal blood tests at the local laboratory. 
Therapeutic services involve the further management of the patient and may involve the prescription of medication, councelling or surgical intervention, as is required by the circumstances.

Therapeutics may be preventative, curative or palliative.
Some patients require more intensive treatment that can only be offered in a hospital setting.

Our practice renders services both to inpatients and outpatients at the local private hospital Unfortunately we do not admit to or treat patients in the local public hospital.
Surgical intervention may sometimes be necessary in order to achieve the desired outcome, eg. removing the appendix (appendicectomy) in the case of acute appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix).

This practice offers a range of surgical interventions.
