“My 18-year old daughter, Shanice had an op with Dr. Du Plessis to remove a fibroadenoma in her breast. He handled Shanice with so much care and made her feel very comfortable … I would recommend Dr. Du Plessis as a surgeon to any patient. His advice and his medical knowledge is the best.”

“I would like to thank you and your team for all the amazing service I received during my stay at Melomed Tokia for surgery for a bilateral inguinal hernia. From the moment I met you my mind was set at ease. The professional yet friendly way things were explained to me was refreshing.”
- Tristan Lee
The very thought of hospitalisation is scary and traumatising, but caring doctors like you make it friendly and pleasing.
Your team took care of me as i was the most important person on earth 🙂 Nicole Andrews
