My message to you...


Firstly, a huge thank you to all our patients who have taken the trouble to find and continue supporting us at our wonderful new home at The Village Square.

This is a special notice to say that we will REMAIN OPEN throughout the lockdown period and in the unknown weeks to follow. 

We will be available to all patients on site, but encourage all those seeking medical advice regarding colds/flu and possible Corona exposure, to arrange with our Reception for telephonic consultations with either myself or Dr Marc De Villiers.

We are able to consult via:

  • Skype
  • WhatsApp
  • Telephone

We have both taken measures to increase our capacity to be available every day!




PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN

  • If you need to be seen, we request that you wear a mask if you have a cough or flu-like symptoms (the mask only protects those around you from getting your infection).

  • If you do not have an infection, then a normal surgical mask is of NO VALUE in protecting you. Only the N95 type mask will work (available for purchase from us).

  • If you are sick and don't have a mask, please wait outside our offices and we will provide you with one (when available).

  • We have an open air balcony waiting area if you prefer not to wait in the waiting room.

  • It is still your best option for us to complete a form for you to be tested for Corona BEFORE you see any health workers. This can be done telephonically and mailed to you.





CHRONIC MEDICATION

  • It is critical that you DO NOT fall behind with any of your chronic medication that would put unnecessary load on your cardiovascular, adrenal or immune system at this time.

  • If your script is running out, we will issue you a new one without a visit wherever we feel it is safe to do so.

  • This applies especially to chronic airway disorders like asthma and emphysema. Chronic allergy treatments remain important.

  • It is now more important than ever to avoid allergens, both environmental and foods, that would aggravate your allergies.


HORMONE & SUPPLEMENTAL THERAPIES

  • Available as usual.

  • You are welcome to email wendy@drgrantfourie.co.za for any queries or requests for reorders or new scripts.

  • Our Online shop is available for all your hormone reorders and supplements.

  • Our NEW IV therapies offer Immune boosting High dose Vitamin C infusions.
