For a caring, empathetic doctor for the whole family,
Dr Erika should be your next appointment.
Dr Erika as she is affectionately known has been in private practice for over 20 years. Her attention to detail and genuine love for her patients separates her from the rest. Her rooms in Caledon Street, Somerset West have a welcoming feeling and her staff are all accommodating and friendly. Previously well known in the West Rand, Dr Erika has assisted and diagnosed many of its residents for over 22 years and decided to relocate to Somerset West end of December 2014. Her confidentiality and professional attitude is unquestioned. DrErika works in close relation with many of the excellent specialists in the area with whom she enjoys a mutual respect. Over and above her traditional medical practice she also offers a superb range of added services.
