You may not know why you have pain or what condition you are suffering from, and that is precisely why you should come.

As a leading expert in this field, Dr CA Pettipher prides himself in the following principles:

  1. Time given to make an accurate diagnosis (1 hour consultation with the initial visit),
  2. Full explanation about the underlying condition,
  3. Open and frank discussion about treatment options,
  4. Truth, honesty and dignity at all times,
  5. Follow up visits to resolution.
