I studied medicine at the University of Pretoria, completing my studies in 2014 with distinction. I completed my internship and community service at Potchefstroom Hospital, after which I moved to Cape Town to pursue my career as a General Practitioner.
Family medicine, functional medicine, allergology, ENT, women's health and healthcare technology. My hobbies include photography, pilates and cooking.
I enjoy attending/participating in further training/education to be able to remain up to date with the latest developments in medicine and thus provide the best service to patients.
Dalene qualified as a medical doctor in 2006. Her dreams of becoming a paediatric surgeon were shattered when she was diagnosed with primary multi-drug resistant (MDR) pulmonary TB in 2010. What followed was a harrowing 19 months of treatment, during which she had to make some potentially life-threatening decisions to preserve her hearing and career. Dalene had optimal access to all forms of care, including very fortuitous use of the first new TB drug in 42 years, bedaquiline, on South Africa’s short-lived 2011 compassionate use program. She considers herself extremely fortunate to have recovered so well from this debilitating disease, but the majority of other DR TB patients are not nearly as lucky. Dalene has subsequently become a very motivated TB patient/physician advocate, campaigning for more effective, safer and equitable treatment options. She is also a founding member of “TB Proof”, an education and awareness community seeking to destigmatize all forms of TB and empower health care workers and students to protect themselves and their patients more effectively against nosocomial TB transmission. Her advocacy work involves various national and international platforms, including being a member of the WHO's Strategic and Technical advisory group for TB (STAG TB) as well as the Global Drug-Resistant TB Initiative Core Group (STOP TB Partnership). She was selected as a National TB Ambassador by previous South African Minister of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi in 2015. Dalene remains fond of clinical care and while serving on the management of the NPO TB Proof, she continued working at Vergelegen Mediclinic in the Emergency Department, until 2015 when her first child was born. Now the mother of two, she remains dedicated to improve health for all, and continues to serve on the management of TB Proof.
I love Scuba diving, Snowboarding, Surfing
I graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2012. I then completed my internship and
community service years at Witbank provincial Hospital. After that I spent a short amount of time as a Medical Officer in the Department of Paediatrics also in Witbank.
In 2016 I completed my Diploma of child health from CMSA and I joined a GP practice full time. Currently I am a part-time GP in Centurion and part-time mom to our little boy.
I enjoy any sort of crafting (from needlework to crochet to pottery), doing yoga and spending
time with my husband, our little boy and our gentle giant dog.
I grew up in the Boland, in Worcester. I always knew that I wanted to become a doctor and live in a big city one day. Whilst undergoing my training after graduating, I started growing a love for treating my patients holistically.
I did some shifts at GP practices and decided that this is what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Caring not only for my patient’s physical health, but also their mental wellbeing. Mental health is still so stigmatized.
In my spare time I enjoy taking walks, being outdoors. Reading is one of my favourite hobbies. I am as bookwormy as they come :) You will never find me without a book in my bag.
I have been in practice for more than 20 years as a GP in solus practice, but also in group practice as a disepensing doctor. I have also assisted a variety of specialists in theatre (gynaecologist, orthopeadic surgeons, urologists, general surgeons and also neursurgeons), which is really a passion of mint.Through all this. I am still married to my best friend, Hein, over 26 years, and we have raised 3 beautiful, strong boys together.
Then I returned to the public sector for approximately 4 years and no I am back in the private sector doing sonography full time. I like it when puzzles come together in my work, but also when relaxing with my kids.
My favorite place on earth is where animals outnumber humans. I am always in awe of the Creator and breathing comes more easily.

I grew up in Pretoria and graduated with an MBChB degree in 2000 from the University of Pretoria. I completed my internship in Cape Town and community service year in Oudtshoorn. After working at the Red cross children's hospital in Cape Town as a medical officer for a year, I left for the UK where I had a registrar post in neonatology. My love for South Africa and its people made me return after a year. Realising the job satisfaction general private practice awarded me, I settled as a general practitioner in Cape Town. First at Medicross for six years and thereafter as sole practitioner for the last 11 years. My keen interest and love for beauty and art directed me to train as aesthetic doctor in 2009. Enhancing natural beauty with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers is part of my scope of practice.
Art and science are the two passions that drive me. They are probably also the reason I love medical aesthetics so much. I love painting, drawing, doing arts and crafts. I love reading about the human species- our evolution, psychology, behaviour and nature.
