Thank you for your support. Our practice protocols are different.
DSC provides a service to clients from Africa and the surrounding islands. The waiting period for standby patients is unpredictable. Appointment delays are due to emergency, unscheduled operations for skin cancers, and lengthy consultations. An assistant and a trainee will be present during your consultation. The assistant will explain the treatment protocols after your consultation. All communications will be documented. The assistants are trained to treat problems, complications and to perform minor procedures. Powerpoint software programs are designed to assist the patients to read and understand their skin conditions.
This is a training and empowerment facility for Doctors and therapists. We thank you for your patience and tolerance as we grow South Africans.
Your signed consent is requested for treatments, and procedures. This practice is not contracted to medical aid. The patient negotiates with the medical aid. Financial transactions are discussed with the dermatology assistants only. You will be billed independently by the Pathology Laboratory for sample analysis. Please silence your cell phones during consultation. Prescriptions are valid for 6 months. Consultations will be conducted for the one officially booked appointment only. All treatments are optional. We respect your wish to seek the services of a superior service provider if DSC is not suitable. A second opinion is advisable with respect to the severe, chronic, and incurable disorders. We request written permission to treat you with innovative published methods for incurable disorders. Please study the package inserts of all therapies before starting treatments.
Once again, thanks for all your support and cooperation.
