Eight doctors work in the Clinic. The Clinic runs morning sessions from 8:30 am to 14:00 hours and afternoon sessions from 16:00 hours to 20:00hours.
We believe that it is important for people to be aware of the state of their health. That is why we routinely check to see if they have other problems whenever we see a patient. Our patients regularly have their weight, height and blood pressure measured and for those at risk of diabetes, we also do a urine test.
