You saved my life…
Dear Dr De Beer, I would like thank you for the great care in which you have treated me, I believe that if you had not treated me with the urgency in which you did and not possessed the great expertise in less than ideal situations, I may not be here today. I thank God that he had chosen you to perform the surgery and for giving you such a great gift. You have saved my life and for that I am extremely grateful Many thanks
It was a very difficult time…
I was in ICU last year. Dr WP de Beer was not my doctor for this admission. He would still take the time to look in on me. It was a very difficult time as it was during the time when no visitors were allowed. I had not seen my family for the first 3 weeks I was there. I was extremely ill, I can’t remember most days. Dr de Beer’s visits and compassion is one of the few lucid memories I have.
One of the best doctors…
Dr WP De Beer is one of the most amazing Doctors I have been fortunate to be treated by. Whatever complications or problems I encountered was sorted out immediately. He has such insight and knowledge that I trusted him totally.
