Currently heads the Urology Unit at Helen Joseph Hospital in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, lectures at WITS medical school and practices part-time as a Private Urologist in Johannesburg. He has first-hand experience in primary and tertiary healthcare system challenges faced by patients and doctors in accessing adequate care due to the lack of an efficient referral system.

This efficiency will allow healthcare practitioners to focus on what they do best, care for the patients, and provide a platform where they can showcase their skills and grow their practices beyond their local network for the patient's benefit.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to allow all healthcare practitioners to digitally connect and refer patients amongst each other quickly and effectively across the world to benefit the communities they serve.
