Patient Feedback

"It is a real privilege to have Dr Roelofse's guidance as I journey with cancer. He is real, caring and genuinely connecting. I trust him fully. And both he and his team feel like family." - Judy Kotze

"Dr Roelofse, Shirley, Sr Sophia and Annamarie are all strikingly professional, unexpectedly friendly and impressive with their attention to details. I have no doubt that I am in good hands and grateful for their positive attitude and aliveness towards healing." - Ingrid Scoonraad

"Het nou bietjie tyd gehad om te reflekteer op die afgelope 2 dae se verloop. Ek wil jou en spesiaal ook vir James [dra asb. my dank ook aan hom oor] en julle span baie bedank vir die uiters professionele manier waarop die biopsie uitgevoer is en ek in julle goeie menslike hande kon wees. Jou kennisgebaseerde selfvertroue met die hantering van moderne tegnologie is baie bemoedigend, veral vir my aangesien ek na 53 jaar vir die tweede keer in 'n hospitaalbed was.

Onderhewig aan die Here se wil, is ek seker ons kan menslik gesproke die probleem saam in die oe kyk en bestuur. Ek het nog baie dinge wat ek sou graag wou verder in die pad af neem, baie daarvan ook vir uitbreiding van die Koningkryk. Geniet die naweek. Ek sien jou oor 2 weke DV." - Jacques Pauw
