What to expect
Visiting a gynecologist is often a worrysome experience. We will do our best to make women feel relaxed during the visit.
The first visit takes about an hour, and a follow-up visit takes about 30 minutes. You are welcome to bring along a support person. You will be able to discuss your complains, any treatment you have received so far, your medical, gynaecological, surgical and obstetric history. We will do an examination and ultrasound. Other tests and investigations would depend on your diagnosis.
During the first visit a management plan will be made in close discussion with you, which may include further tests, a particular treatment or a surgical procedure. Surgery is performed at the Mediclinic in Cape Town.

With follow-up visits we will discuss results and any other new issues.
