Testimonials

I found Dr Groenewald to be unassuming, portraying rare qualities of being exceptionally compassionate, sensitive, kind and supportive.
Bronwyn
Dr Groenewald did an amazing job of guiding us through my pregnancy confidently! He was so thorough and explained every stage perfectly, with a great bedside manner!
Tammy
After many years of pain and excessive bleeding due to fibroids on my uterus, I recently underwent a hysterectomy. I was very reluctant to undergo this procedure as I, like many women, still held on to the belief that I would be losing part of my “womanhood”. I had also heard about the long recovery period and was very scared about the pain.
From my first consultation with Dr Groenewald, he really put me at ease and allayed my fears. His manner is very relaxed, whilst also confident and caring. Furthermore, he offered me the option of having the hysterectomy done laparoscopically. This meant that the entire procedure would be done through several small incisions in the abdomen rather than one large cut. I opted for the laparascopic hysterectomy and was indeed surprised that, just as Dr Groenewald had promised, I was almost pain free within a couple of days. My hospital stay was also significantly shorter.
Thank you Dr Groenewald for your excellent service. I would happily refer any of my friends to you and wish you well in your career!
