Health and Personal

Shane is an avid cricketer and all-round sportsman. He enjoys spending time outdoors as much as possible; hiking, fishing, and bird watching fill his weekends when there is no sport on. Shane enjoys spending time with his family and is always up for a braai (South African barbeque).

Wax removal available

Sometimes, the primary cause for hearing loss is a build-up of wax inside your ear canal. With the precision of micro suction, we offer an ear wax removal service. This is a less invasive technique than syringing and allows us to provide you with instant relief. If you are prone to ear wax build-up or are a hearing aid user, you should get your ears checked annually.
